I know loads of my friends are not going to be able to be in New York next Thursday when the latest and final installment of my radio play (with pictures) 3 Lies About Brooklyn.
Here’s a recording of the opening 9 minutes or so. (Click to begin)
We’re using the team at ovationtix – let me know if you experience any weirdness.
I’m delighted to announce that I have been contracted to direct a new staging of Sophia Romma’s extraordinary play THAT QUEER BLIND SILENCE. The play itself has been greatly revised so we may rightly call it a premiere. (Opens 5 August at 13th Street Rep. and plays through the month)
Sophia is the kind of playwright Uncle Joe would have sent to the same kind of asylum the lunatic (ie gay) figure skaters find themselves thrown into here. But, wait….there’s more than meets the eye. Is that Vladimir Putin himself?
(What’s he doing here?)
This is an audio of the text as it premiered last July at Dixon Place Theater. It is chiefly for archival purposes as it is unlikely to be read or performed in this version ever again.

Fine dining in the heart of Whitman’s old stomping grounds, Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO. “Table Talk and, then, a Walk” is limited to 10 people per outing. After a truly excellent meal in one of the neighborhood’s more select (and hidden) locations, Mr. Whitman will take you to see the many in-tact places key to Whitman’s years here. The evening culminates with a dramatic reading of “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” at the revitalised Fulton Ferry landing – the very spot Whitman envisaged himself returning to years in the future.
