New York Play List #6 November 5, 2011

Entertaining, New York City Play List, Uncatergorized

 

One of the inspirations for How Much is Enough?, now at St. Anne’s Warehouse in Brooklyn is The Price of Everything by Eduardo Porter. Eduardo writes about business, economics, and many other matters as a member of the New York Times editorial board. He asks a lot of hard questions.

What will we pay for every moment?  Watch the teaser here.

It was off to Dumbo via way of Williamsburg, which had us stumble upon –

Moon River Chattel

It’s hard to believe this home goods store has been around for 12 plus years and we just made the discovery. After a quick browse, we had a taste of the house favorite at Aurora Ristorante – Try the filling but delicious -gnocchi vongole e carciofi  – lemon scented Yukon gold potato gnocchi with Manila clams, artichokes and Porcini mushroom.

Book before November 27th – How Much is Enough: Our Values in Question, exploring the fundamental concepts of value in our communities. The audience is asked to interact and answer personal questions about what they value. It’s quite the theatrical experiment. Read a pretty accurate review here.

How Much is Enough?

Entertaining, Uncatergorized

What’s the most important thing you’ve ever done, that you didn’t want to do?

How Much is Enough is a play that asks what we value, quantitatively in our relation to money and qualitatively by what we hold dear.  ‘Ask’ is the operative word since the piece itself is built entirely of questions posed by three performers to audience members, to each other, to the universe and then some, about how we live our lives, how we create the world together and how we imagine the future.

We have tickets for this evening’s performance at St. Anne’s Warehouse. Visit their site for more.
