Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Mathieu in New-York?

Just south of Times square a few blocks is the garment district where I
often go too Fabric and notion shops to find hard to get stuff.    There is
a bead district is near there to.  Just North of Times square on 48th St is
the music store street if you play music this is fun.  SOHO has an awesome
fake fur store called Big Four on Broadway. Canal Street Plastic has a
plastics shop where you can get all kinds of material for eye balls etc.
Puppet Kitchen is near there and they have given me great advice on the best
prices on puppet making material.  And that pet shop animatronics gallery
installation is near there too. China town is right near there as well and
is pretty interesting.  My daughter has been tellikng me about student rush
tickets(you don't have to be a student) she has gotten tickets on Bdway as
cheap as $20-30 right before the show begins.  Last time I checked the Times
Square two-fer ticket booth was under construction, but perhaps it has a
temporary box office.   When is Hunchback?
