Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Redmoon's Hunchback in New York


I saw Redmoon's Hunch back during the Henson festival I thought it was an
outstanding work of theatre
The new Times SQ TKTS booth just opened on Oct 16th.
There are also TKTS booths at South Street Seaport and in Brooklyn

One of the many quintessential NY experiences is waiting on line for tickets
(New Yorkers tend to  say waiting on line, not waiting in line)
On the line I have had very  pleasant conversations  with both tourists and
New Yorkers, about theatre, theatre gossip, restaurants etc.
However if you wait until about 6 or even later, there is usually no wait at
all

You asked about Central Park
I dont think anyone has mentioned the marionette cottage,
Even if there is no show playing you could walk by

Be ready to walk and walk and walk.
As in any great city, when you get tired of walking, find a cafe and sit and
watch
There are only about 100 things to put at the top of list of essential
things to do in NY
It  depends on which NY you want to see.

Before I saw "Arias with  Twist" a few weeks ago, on a perfect fall day I
walked about 5 blocks along Spring St in soho
My destination was to get a world class apple tart before seeing the show
(which I did)
In those few blocks the diversity of people and their styles and the
restaurants and galleries and shops was totally entertaining
