If you might be looking for an alternative to eggnog, tinsel and holiday hoopla — here are some terrific ideas, and they’re all non-fattening!
RUN to see “The Invisible Hand” by Ayad Akhtar at New York Theatre Workshop. Only on until January 4th. I guarantee this fine play will keep you thinking well into the new year.
RADIATE HAPPINESS when you see “Every Brilliant Thing” at Barrow Street. I saw, and loved, this in Edinburgh — and it continues to make me smile!
GET STARRY EYED with “Constellations”from Manhattan Theatre Club. Nick Payne’s brilliant play, which I saw in London, albeit with a different cast — is memorably moving. Here’s one of many rave reviews.
RACE to “Howie the Rookie,” by Mark O’Rowe, at BAM. Tom Vaughan Lawlor’s tour-de-force performance will leave you breathless, I promise! Another too, too short Next Wave run.
SUPPORT”The Events,” coming to New York Theatre Workshop. Please join us on Sunday, February 8th for a benefit matinee performance and reception with the UK cast. Email me at Carol@BestofEdinburgh.org to reserve a place for this “event”. Details to follow.
EXPERIMENT with international theatre from the always interesting “Under the Radar Festival” at The Public Theatre.
LOOK AHEAD and give yourself a gift of spectacular theatre in 2015. Get tickets NOW for “Ghosts” with the extraordinary Lesley Manville at BAM. I honestly can’t forget seeing it in London last year. Here’s a review.
GIVE A GIFT to your favorite non-profit theatre company — enriching our lives all year!
I hope I’ve left some time for your holiday festivities. Let’s celebrate together at the theatre!
