‘Ze Bubble.

9 May

Tonight, Erica and I go to Fan Yang’s (world record holder for biggest bubble) Gazillion Bubble Show! Complete with light, lasers, and ridiculous bubble creations, who wouldn’t want to feel like a kid again and check it out? I will keep you posted on how the show went, but I have to say I have never been to a show like this, and think it might be a unique experience. David Letterman/The Late Show, says about the creator, “The greatest bubble artist in the world.”

It was good.

The show was good, Katie and I would probably have enjoyed it more if we were “maybe 8 years older”. It had some nice moments where he uncannily plays the role of his grandmother, mother, father, brother, and psychiatrist. A true one-man show. An auto-biographical representation of his life as a Renaissance geek in a society that shuns it. The impersonations and cute analogies made it a fun story-telling experience.

On my way into my apartment there was a Russian Blue feline waiting for me, trying to work his way into my apartment. He looked just like this picture, do you know him? Very peculiar. I then meet the nicest girl in my building (the only one in a year of living here) Amy who tried to help me find the owner. He/she could not be found. To be continued…

If you haven’t heard of it, now is the time to introduce yourself. The show is FUERZABRUTA, one of the best shows that exists right now in New York. Big statement, I know. But I guarantee you have never seen anything like it, and I guarantee you will never forget it either. Check out the site. A video here. And here.

Imagine a combination of psychedelic lighting, huge shiny parachutes flying, acrobatics and aerialists of the most eccentric kind, a dancy club fit with DJ booth, destructive piles of “stuff” falling everywhere, and being under a water tank with gorgeous bodies swirling, slapping, and gliding above you.

Oh, and tickets right now, if you know where to look, are discounted to $40 (usually $70) for select shows. Tell me if your going, hell, I will go with you. I’ll go twice. So fun. 

Straight up.

Straight Up with a Twist

So today is the day for my great friend Katie and I to venture to The Players Theater to see Straight Up. We are definitely looking forward to finding out if this show is any good…as of now we are wondering why there is a power-drill mixer on the cover. Hmm, we will keep you posted on that one. Also, tonight is resume night, Ms. Sherman will use her magical powers of the pen to revamp the “Tracee-that-exists-on-paper”. It should be a great night! Can’t wait to see what we come up with. 

Anybody else looking forward to the fact that it is almost Friday? Raise your hand.
