"All I want is to breathe / Won't you breathe with me?" ― "Born Under Punches" by David Byrne & Brian Eno
Last week Broadway tickets went back on sale! Did you get any tickets? I decided I wanted, needed, to be in the house of a Broadway show for its performance back on stage. I was ushering a play on the last night of theater in New York, and I want to bear witness to its return. It was a tough choice, but I decided on David Byrne's American Utopia because I thought it'd be perfect, the catharsis of a shared musical experience to bring us together again. I love David Byrne and enjoyed working with him so much when I was in Artist Services at BAM and we produced a month-long residency of Paul Simon shows in April 2008. David was part of Paul's "Under African Skies' concerts, and I'll always remember dancing and singing in the wings with the gorgeous singer Kaïssa each and every time David Byrne performed his awesome version of "You Can Call Me Al." He would catch us dancing just off stage and smile back at us. It was those joyful memories I had in mind when I chose American Utopia. CLICK HERE to have fun with his song "Born Under Punches" and build the beat with the song's instruments.

CLICK HERE for a list of announced re-opening dates, and then get in touch with me to help plan your ultimate Broadway night out: pre-show dinner (perhaps with a cast member), premium tickets, and VIP backstage tour after the show. If you're coming in from out of town, I'd love to arrange your NYC hotel and include exclusive amenities (early check-in, late check-out, free breakfast, $100+ hotel credit, and more), and exciting private tours all around the city - in every borough you want to explore! Graffiti workshop and street art tour in Brooklyn, foodie tour of Chinatown, visits to the Met and MoMA before they open to the public, historian-led walking tours, and so much more!
