The Play's The Thing: It’s harder than ever to find the right hook for audience

Out in the country in lots of small towns, there’s not much competition either. So even though they may have their share of the distractions of our modern age, theater is still a big deal when it’s the only game in town. Here in New York there’s a lot going on, lots of choices for those with the energy to get out of the house. So how can we local theater people get the audience that we need and deserve? Comment.

Dining Out: Sajni — London-style casual Indian dining in Rego Park

When we lived in London, every neighborhood had at least one Indian restaurant. The function they served corresponded to New York’s neighborhood Chinese restaurants. They were a place for diners to go for an inexpensive but tasty restaurant (or “carry out”) meal that they couldn’t, without some skill and major expenditure of effort, produce at home. Like New York’s American Chinese restaurants, the dishes served were ubiquitous to the genre, and comforting in their familiarity to the patrons. Comment.

From the Footlights: Street smarts on the South Seas

In the several years this theater column has been profiling Queens’ actors and artists who work behind-the-scenes on and Off Broadway, there has likely never been a performer whose personal history has been so tied to the borough as that of Danny Burstein, who plays Luther Billis in Rogers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.” Comment.
