After rummaging through the new Artist&Fleas location on this past sunny Sunday afternoon I was stopped by a girl from Wink Ball. WB is an international blog whose goal is to “Communicate Happiness”.
I mention that I bought some plants – go here to check out the vendor! Amazingly, they are carnivorous little guys in terrariums – no more apartment flies for this brooklynite!
I was one of a privileged few who were able to attend a performance of BAM’s recent offering John Gabriel Borkman. Each of the rolls in it’s small cast were emotionally demanding beyond what I had expected, and a third row seat intensified the whole situation.
But I am not here to brag – no, no! Rather, I would like to remind all my fellow NYers not to neglect your civic duties to engage the arts when you are able – be it alone or with a group. I took myself out to see this performance, and was delighted to see other exciting offerings slated to come soon to the venue. BAM has a very impressive cast list traipsing through their halls in a constant stream of talent.
Do not miss out if you can steal away for a night (or afternoon) at the theatre!
