If you are out and about in New York City this weekend check out a play at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre. Nestled amongst skyscrapers and city lights the theater is easy to get to and is located in Times Square on 42nd street near 8th avenue. For a limited time you can catch “Settling Down” by Alan Braunstein – The story of commitment-phobic Jerry Freed who decides to get engaged to his long time girlfriend Susan Peloso, but is afraid of leaving the single life behind. “How can a man marry a woman who thinks Roger Moore was a good James Bond?” Jerry asked himself .
Alan Braunstein and his cast did an amazing job bringing “Settling Down” to life. They captivated the us with their theatrics, made us laugh with their Seinfeld-like humor, and made us fall in love with the each character in just an hour’s time. Bravo! Mr. Braunstein who not only wrote and directed the play, but also played the main character Jerry Freed. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Fri. April 12th @ 7:45 pm
Sat. April 13th @ 3:15 pm
Wed. April.17th.@ 7:00 pm

Tomorrow it’s out with the old, and in with the new! From 12pm-1pm, the public is invited to the 5th Annual Good Riddance Day on the Broadway Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets. In preparation for the New Year say goodbye to your worst memory from 2011 once and for all on Good Riddance Day!
Bring a picture of an old flame, a bad report card, a pile of old credit card statements, a sports team’s record for this year, a picture of an old boss, or a picture of your home that took forever to sell. Whatever you choose, bring it down and say “good riddance!!!”, and start fresh in 2012! This is the first time I’ve heard about this event, and it sounds pretty interesting. I hope the weather is nicer tomorrow so that I can venture to Times Square to check it out!
There will be a mobile shredding truck, sledgehammer, and dumpster will be available for you to dispose of anything that reminds you of those depressing or embarrassing memories. You’ll also have the chance to share your absolute worst recollections by jotting them down with stationary available onsite. The most creative entry receives an iPad2!
Please note: Good Riddance Day is a symbolic event for shredding single memories or ideas. It is not a mass shredding or disposal event, and we are unable to accommodate requests to shred large amounts of paper material.
