A Twist on Seuss to Support the Broadway Green Alliance…and Fine Dining in a Vintage Camper
Looking for some fun holiday entertainment that also helps to fund an important organization?
Check out You’re a Green One, Mr. Finch, a twist on a Dr. Seuss favorite, Friday Dec. 18 at 8 PM on Playbill.com.
This event brings together some of the best of the Broadway community to raise awareness and funds for the Broadway Green Alliance. The BGA has been involved with the greening of Broadway and theaters for over 12 years, providing workshops, drives, and changing operations and procedures to bring sustainability to theaters and organizations around the country.
As one example of the sorts of initiatives that the Broadway Green Alliance has launched: disposable batteries have been switched out for rechargeable ones. Get this statistic:
Wicked, The Musical eliminated single-use batteries. Formerly, the company would discard 15,808 batteries a year. Once the change took place, a mere 80 per year were trashed. That is a remarkable number, creating an amazing impact. Keep in mind that is just one show. The Broadway Green Alliance is so important to keep alive, which is surely a challenge during the pandemic and Broadway shutdown.
To enjoy You’re a Green One, Mr. Finch, go to Playbill.com on Friday Dec. 18 at 8 PM. The concert is free, but there will be a drive to raise funds for the BGA. Featuring Idina Menzel, Laura Osnes, Lesli Margherita, Ben Cameron, Ann Harada, Susan Egan, George Salazar and many more.
This show promises to be super fun, and a great way to support the Broadway Green Alliance. Get the details.
To hear a conversation about this production and the Broadway Green Alliance with director Molly Braverman, as well as other interviews about theatre initiatives and more, listen to Bagels and Broadway, Sunday from 2-3 PM ET, and on podcast following the broadcast.
While the indoor dining situation in New York City remains extremely tenuous, restaurants are doing all they can to be innovative and serve their valued and loyal patrons. Luca Di Pietro, the passionate owner of Tarallucci e Vino, just parked a kitschy vintage camper on the plaza outside his restaurant on 28th Street. Decked out in festive lights, the camper can be reserved for 4-6 in one party. There are two seatings: 5:30-7:30 PM and 8-10 PM.
There must be a minimum spend of $400, which includes food and beverages.
In addition, a pretty ski-lodge style area covered in tarp and heated by heat lamps has been constructed for public dining.
The food and wine at this restaurant are excellent. You must try their meatballs and Pinsa Romana (Roman Style pizza). With a glass of Montepulciano, you will feel like you are dining in a piazza in la bella Italia!
Tarallucci e Vino is located at 44 E 28th Street. Call to reserve your camper seating. 212-779-1100. Get more details.
