Thinking of traveling to NYC with the family, but you want to get some solo time for raunchy comedy fun? Look no more… October 19th’s Narc Zito benefit from 2-5PM may be the best solution.
147 Bleecker St. NYC- (The Bitter End) – Saturday Afternoon Benefit for Narc Zito- Oct 19 (2-5PM) with Otto & George, Reverend Bob Levy and Big Jay Oakerson (*update, new comics added!!! Joe Conte and Mike Bocchetti)
Divide and Conquer
So if you are considering going to the benefit, but bringing the family, NYC has plenty to do on the 10/19th for kids while you and your spouse divide and conquer. Need a stroller? No worries you can rent one from one of these companies. Want to know the subways with elevators? (by the way the west 4th st. stop right by the bitter end has an elevator) Here’s a great link for all the subways that have them.
Shows for Kids on 10/19
Let the babysitter/parent and kids check out “Me and My Shadow” at 3PM at the New Victory Theater on 42nd Street! Synopsis: “It’s giggles galore when one young girl befriends a particularly sly and silly fellow—her shadow. A whimsical story about friendship, this clever and charming play will delight audiences In this playground of paper, light, music and magic, ME AND MY SHADOW ignites imaginations and tickles the fancy of little theatergoers in this big theater space.” Click here for more details….
Or if shadows aren’t your thing, check out a production of Oscar Wilde’s, “The Selfish Giant” that is playing only 3.5 blocks away on 115 MacDougal Street. Actually this is a better choice if you want to stay close! Also one hour before performance they have a free family workshop.
From the website:
” ‘Preserves Wilde’s fairy-tale setting while infusing it with humor’ – New York Times
Can the laughter of a child melt the cold heart of a selfish giant? Yes it can! This adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s beautiful fairytale will warm the hearts of young and old alike.
Join us for a very special journey inside the mind of Oscar Wilde – follow him as he leads us into the tale of The Selfish Giant. Watch as we transform the stage from literally nothing into the magical land of Wilde’s imagination. At once you will see the show come to life before your eyes while getting a rare glimpse of the show behind the show.”
