And now the following plug from the Shameless Promotion Department…
My good pals at The Brick Theater are throwing a party this Saturday night, and I’m personally inviting all of you. I will be there cheering them on, volunteering in whatever capacity they see fit, and dressed in costume (see below for details). You should be there, too. They are one of New York’s leading Indie Theater companies and they do some of the very best work in town. Plus, they’re just damn fine people and know how to party. Come find out what I mean. Here are the details…
