NoHo, Bleecker Street Between Mulberry and Mott Streets

Last night you saw where I ended up yesterday. This is where I started. Took the 6 train to Bleecker Street and right there at the subway stop was Bleecker Street Theatre which I've never heard of. If you follow the link, you'll see that their next production, about the Iraq War, features such people as Janeane Garofalo, Bebe Neuwirth and David Strathairn, not exactly unknowns. These little theaters are all over the place. I once went to a production of Sweet Eros by Terrance McNally in a storefront with about 40 seats, sat in the first row, about 4 feet from the performers. It was wonderful. Directed by Grant McKeown. This city is full of talent, and artists of all kinds have to scramble to find a way to perform/present their art.
