Monday Went Out With A POOF ...

Tuesday==>Well, in the name of fair and unbiased reporting your favorite blogger has to share with you loyal and faithful readers and followers that his Monday went out with a POOF ...

Yep ... it was already a blah day but, in retrospect the ending was totally in character ... and ... this is what happened ...

As you know from yesterday’s posting, Billi Pod had two staged readings down at Walkerspace in TriBeCa, one at 2:00pm, which he opted to cancel, and then the second at 8:00pm ...

TRIPLE BEAM WET DREAM - “Speed freaks. Hustlers. Star-fuckers. Down-and-outs. Everyone at the Jack in the Box on Sunset Boulevard is looking for a way out. A drug-dealing street shaman named Candy is convinced that she’s got the fix that will set them free. But, what price are these Hollywood outcasts willing to pay to get their hands on the ultimate high?”

I left PHC a bit early for this show because: (1) I was antsy; and, (2) I wanted a bit of walk and wander time before the show. The weather was acceptable.

The show was late getting started for some reason. The house was full with lots of young, obviously “theater-related” folks.

Just as it was about to get underway one of the actors on stage shouted “there’s a leak” and pointed to the wall, house right. Everyone turned to look and sure enough, water was streaming down the wall, getting heavier and heavier.

Someone shouted “get out now” and we did, through the only aisle, which was directly under the leak. The floor was already beginning to collect water. It was kinda scary.

We all huddled outside, waiting for information on whether the reading was going to be postponed or what. No info.

After about 45 minutes many of us decided that there was no way that we were going back into that space, so a mass exodus to the subway station began.

Yep, it was a fitting end to Billi Pod’s BLAH Monday.

As I am writing this I have no clue if the reading has been rescheduled.

Hopefully, Tuesday will be a better day because I have another entertainment doubleheader ... starting with ...

A staged reading at The York Theatre ...

3:00==>GOD’S COUNTRY - “Discovering his birth mother lives in America, wealthy Englishman James Watson travels there on an epic journey to find his true identity. Sweeping melodies with Irish flavor carry this dynamic tale.” (Off Broadway - free ticket)

This musical was a hit at the 2013 New York Musical Festival (NYMF) and is now receiving a fully-staged reading as part of the York Theatre’s Developmental Reading Series. It is being performed at The York Theatre on East 54th Street and has one more performance, tonight at 7:00pm.

I will not come back to PHC when the reading is over. Instead, I will walk down Lexington Avenue to the Union Square area and walk and wander until it is time for my second entertainment event ...

7:00==>TIL DIVORCE DO US PART - “A laugh-out-loud original musical inspired by the true story of a Broadway producer's wife who is suddenly jilted by her husband after decades of marriage.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)

This show, that just opened to rather mixed reviews, is playing at the DR2 Theater on East 15th Street in the Union Square area, has a running time of 1:30, without intermission, and runs through May 4th.

Moving on ...

I am happy to report that both Jim Brochu’s CHARACTER MAN and HAND TO GOD received rave reviews in The New York Times. Both shows also received mostly highly favorable reviews in the other New York media.
