All the details below the fold:
Those of you who've been coming to our Spitzer's Corner meetups will recall meeting Albany-area Kossacks devtob and LuLu a few months back. If you've got a really good memory, you'll recall that they ducked out early because they were going to the theater to see War Horse at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, because LuLu's son is a tech there.
Well, they're coming down to NYC once again to see his work in action, and this time we're all invited to join them to see Ann, Holland Taylor's one-woman show about the great Ann Richards, former Governor of Texas (and mother of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood). Not only that, but we'll be joined by another upstate Kossack who I believe needs no introduction: Denise Oliver Velez, someone I adore and respect and get to see far too seldom.
Here's the plan: brunch at noon, followed by a matinee performance of Ann. You can join us for the brunch only if you prefer, or for the show only, or both! I've found a likely spot for brunch that's an easy walk to the theater; details below.
Since the brunch place has a less casual reservation policy than our usual hangouts, I really, really need you to let me know if you're planning to join us, but as always,
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
