Tickets for the September 2005 Creative Mechanics
production of Bertolt Brecht's Edward II
just went on sale
. This is not even about nepotism, or about plugging my friends
by default. This is about an Off-Broadway theater company that the Village Voice
, and New York
Magazine have all singled out for praise, a troupe that specializes in sensual spectacle, now producing a politically trenchant play by an immortal artist in a city that needs to see it, now more than ever.
How you gon' not buy a ticket
after I said all that? If you live in New York City, hop on it. If you can get there in a day, like I can, save the date. If you live in another timezone, it ain't no thang
. See you there. Just don't buy out all the tickets before my Fall Semester paycheck rolls in, or I'll be mad with you."That our lineage may not suffer for these sins,
O God, grant us remission at this time."
