As a sixth grade English teacher and children's book author, I love reading and thinking about books for young adults. In this blog you'll find the books that are already in our conversations as well as those that will be soon.
Hello There NYC!
Discovering the Big Apple one bite at a time.
Every summer in midtown Manhattan, the Midtown International Theatre Festival (MITF) celebrates the diversity of theatre in New York City and beyond. We emphasize imaginative, low-tech staging. But putting on a play in a festival burgeoning with many other shows -- in only 4 theatres -- means tight organization, both in the Festival and among the participants. We have sufficient caring, paid staff to keep the trains running on time. The MITF welcomes submissions of any kind of stage play, musical or otherwise, new or revived, mainstream or specifically focused on an ethnic or cultural niche.
Having posted more than 100 theatre reviews on my first blog, www.aseatontheaisle.blogspot.com, I’ve now created this second blog to share my thoughts on a wider variety of more serious political, economic, social and philosophical issues. I’ll still be posting theatre reviews on my other blog and I hope you’ll continue to visit that site too, but here's where I'd like you to turn when you find yourself in a more serious frame of mind.
Theatre Is Easy
Theatre Is Easy is dedicated to making theatre accessible for everyone, including tourists and locals who might feel overwhelmed by the theatre district and all it has to offer. Our mission is simple: we provide information in a compact, easy-to-understand way, thereby creating a larger and more knowledgeable audience pool for New York theatre, both on and off Broadway. Although there are many websites that offer theatre reviews, Theatre Is Easy stands apart because of its intent to appeal to a mass market of theatregoers, rather than avid theatre fans who are already familiar with the scene.www.midtownFestival.org
