Besides, you don’t have time this weekend (barbeques are ok; you have to keep your strength up, after all). There is simply too much to do. Including:
2. Of course, you will be going to CPR on Friday, because Thursday you are already doing this. Young Romanian women playwrights … what’s not to love? Also, I am moderating a post-reading panel, which means, yes … a chance to heckle.
3. Have you been up to the Studio Museum yet to see Ralph Lemon’s marvelous, intimate portraits of Walter and Edna Carter? 1856 Cessna Road closes on the 27th, y’all….
4. Simone Forti! The High Line! The Huddle! If, for some reason, you are NOT going to attend the Performance Club event on Thursday … well, I will be very disappointed in you. But. I will be a little less disappointed in you if your reason for skipping out on us is this. (If you really want to get a jump on weekend events, you can hear Forti talk about her work tonight.
5. What? That’s not enough for one weekend? Get thee to some art. Avoid parades at all costs. [update: But of course there is a fifth thing I meant to mention: these talks, featuring such smart folks as Ralph Lemon, Sarah Michelson, David Velasco and Shannon Jackson: Saturday afternoon here and then at night here - thank you Shannon for reminding me!]
