The Play’s the Thing

One man’s mission to bring Bayside culture

I’m over at Donovan’s off Bell Boulevard, enjoying a Malbec and burger and good conversation with Gregg P. Sullivan and an intriguing woman of mystery who must for now remain nameless. We’re talking about the way Bayside used to be and what it will take to revitalize it. And if anyone can do it, Sullivan is the man. Comments (5)

A season on screen at the Museum of the Moving Image

It’s a busy fall season at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, featuring a tribute to one of the greatest American actors of his generation, a retrospective of the work of a director who ruled the art houses in the 1990s and a web-based, interactive exhibition that gives viewers a look at how American presidential candidates have been marketed to the public for the past 60 years.

This new stage version makes a strong effort to do the the same for today’s audience. Comment
