NYC life: Rock n’ Roll, Theatre, Discounts, Concerts, and More
Okay Rocker Chicks. Head to the MET for a not to be missed exhibit on the instruments of rock n’ roll. On the mellow side, get discounted tickets to see the one and only Tony Bennett at Radio City. Speaking of discounts, we have theater discounts for a few shows including “Miracle in Rwanda”. In other theater news, Valerie Smaldone says the revival of “Kiss Me Kate” at Studio 54 is fresh and perky. Head to the Sheen Center for “Land of Promise” celebrating the Scots and the Irish. Tomatoes Got Talent tickets are going fast, so get yours before we sell out. And the early bird discount for our May Renewal Summit ends soon. And don’t miss Dr. Dennis Goodman, a leading cardiologist at the 92nd Street Y.
April 4 – April 21. MIRACLE IN RWANDA
Our producer friend Pat Addis says do not miss MIRACLE IN RWANDA, the uplifting tale depicting the real-life events in Rwanda when Immaculée Ilibagiza survived — along with 7 others—three months in a 3×4 foot bathroom during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. Immaculée has been referred to as “our generation’s Anne Frank,” yet one who thankfully survived. Get the special discount offer.
Ellen Easton has one word for this new exhibit opening at the MET…FAB-U-LOUS!
