I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

33 Variations

Fridays, Mar. 13 & 20 at 8pm
Saturdays, Mar. 14 & 21 at 8pm
Sundays, Mar. 15 & 22 at 2pm

One of classical music’s enduring riddles is why Beethoven devoted four years of his diminishing life (and hearing) writing 33 variations of a rather uninspired waltz. Two hundred years later, a modern-day music scholar is driven to solve the mystery even as her own health and relationship with her daughter crumbles. Moises Kaufman (The Laramie Project) wrote this passionate play that simultaneously explores the composer’s creations and the struggle of the musicologist, presented by. Pierrot Productions and accompanied by a live pianist playing the variations themselves.

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) announces the return of Practical Playwriting: How to Write for Commercial Production 2020 on Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 10am to 5:30 pm at Clinton Cameo Studios, 307 W. 43rd Street, Studio A. Tickets are $125 for members and $150 for non-members. Early- Bird tickets are $25 off thru 3/4. Tickets can be purchased online at https://truonline.org/events/practical-playwriting-2020/.

What often holds playwrights back is that they rarely consider the person who will buy and produce their product: the producer.  With all the work, hope and sweat they invest in considering character, theme and plot, playwrights rarely take into account producibility.

This one-day intensive will be taught by TRU Literary Manager Cate Cammarata, with segments of the workshop taught by commercial producer 
Patrick Blake (The 39 Steps, My Life Is a Musical, Bedlam Theater's 
Hamlet/St. Joan, The Exonerated, In the Continuum, Play Dead) founding artistic director of Rhymes Over Beats, and TRU's Bob Ost and Gary Hughes offering marketing insights. With guest speakers including producers
Margot Astrachan (The PromA Gentleman's Guide...Nice Work If  You Can Get ItOn a Clear Day... revival, The Realistic Joneses), and producer/consultant/former general manager R. Erin Craig of La Vie Productions (Himself and NoraStalking the BogeymanMr Rickey Calls A MeetingAusten's Pride, Academy); and entertainment attorney Lee Feldshon.

* WHAT IS PRODUCIBILITY? The fact that producers always ask this question, and playwrights hardly ever do, causes a serious disconnect between the commercial producer and most playwrights.
* WRITING TO A MARKET - We will ask each playwright questions he or she has probably never considered before: Who is your market? Who is going to buy tickets? Who is this play written for?
* HOW TO SPEAK "PRODUCER" - Understanding the producer's point of view, and learning to look at your work from a more objective perspective.

(subject to change):
10am - 11am - Writing a play that increases the odds of it being produced - practical guidelines taught by Patrick Blake
  • How your creative choices influence your budget
  • Producible where? What makes a property commercial? What are other markets?
  • Managing expectations and knowing who your audience is
  • What producers look for in a play, and a partner
  • Avoiding encumbrances
11am - 12pm - What to expect from collaborators  with Cate Cammarata
  • How collaborations work, and what to expect from your composer and co-writers
  • The role of the dramaturg in development
  • Balance of power: communicating clearly and working with a director
12:00pm to 1:00 pm - Lunch
1:00pm to 2:30 pm - Getting to Yes - with Cate, Pat and attorney Lee Feldshon

Guest Artists are the Marcus Roberts Trio and Singer Catherine Russell
All-Ellington Symphonic Program Includes Two World Premiere Arrangements
by Marcus Roberts

American Symphony Orchestra culminates its 2019-20 Vanguard series on March 12 with a tribute to the genre-defying genius of the great Duke Ellington on the stage of Carnegie Hall, where the composer played a series of annual concerts and premiered many of his greatest works, including Black, Brown, and Beige and New World A-Comin’.

The evening, conducted by ASO’s music director Leon Botstein, features two world premiere arrangements of New World A-Comin’ and Three Black Kings for Jazz Trio and Large Orchestra by American jazz pianist, composer, arranger, bandleader, and teacher Marcus Roberts, who performs with his Marcus Roberts Trio. His method of writing for trio and orchestra is to blend the two ensembles, the seemingly different worlds of Jazz and Classical they each represent, and the contrasting approaches of improvisational and written music-making into a collage that is uniquely and unmistakably American. Grammy Award-winning vocalist Catherine Russell, best known for her album Harlem on my Mind and her appearance as a featured artist on the soundtrack album for the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire, also joins the evening.

Leon Botstein will provide the musical context for the program in a lively, 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A session, free for all ticket holders, one hour before the concert.

Environmental Drama About Legendary Artist Announces Open-Ended Run
Continues at Madame X in Manhattan's West Village

After celebrating its 100th performance in February, Bated Breath Theatre Company announces yet another extension of their acclaimed immersive, environmental production UNMAKING TOULOUSE-LAUTREC, selected as one of the “best immersive plays and interactive theatrical experiences on Broadway and beyond” by Time Out. The run of this unexpected hit will now be open ended at Madame X in Manhattan’s historic Greenwich Village where it began performances in May 2019.

UNMAKING TOULOUSE-LAUTREC invites you to discover the bohemian world of the Belle Epoque with Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec—artist, aristocrat and all-around 19th Century bad boy. Dive into the underbelly of old Paris as you drink innovative house-made cocktails, lounge in a totally immersive Parisian-style salon, and rub shoulders with the dancers, prostitutes and outcasts that inspired the most enticing, elegant and provocative art depicting the decadence and sexuality of post-impressionist France.

Through dance, imagery, vignettes, and text, the production combines modern music and language while exploring the ecstasy of creativity and the agony of the body in the sexiest art history lesson you'll ever have.

Tickets for UNMAKING TOULOUSE-LAUTREC are currently on sale through May 30, 2020. Performance schedule varies. Madame X is located at 94 West Houston Street, between LaGuardia Place and Thompson Street -- accessible from the B,D,F,M trains at Broadway/Lafayette.  You must be 21+ to attend. Tickets are $50 - $100. Tickets are available at www.unmakinglautrecplay.com..
And that's the scoop. Tune in tomorrow for More Theater Monday.
