Too Much Happens In This Town
When you live in New York you accept certain things. Cool stuff is always going on everywhere and you'll be lucky if you hear about 3% of it. And for that 3% you do know about? If you happen to attend it you'll be there with 1,000,000 other people because there are too many friggin' people in this city!
Which explains why I had not heard of this. There's this group called NY Artists Unlimited that has a vague enough name that it could really be anything from a movie theater chain to a union for NY artists. Instead, what it actually is (and I quote) is a group, "dedicated to
taking professional theatre to under-served audiences." Fair enough. I'll forgive them the British spelling of "theatre" this time. But why should you care? Well, remember when we were coming up with that list of the Worst 14 Films Made From Children's Books? It looks like those movies might have found their niche. On October 18th the International Cringe Festival is having the World's First Bad Films Festival. Sadly, no schedule is up as of yet. My hopes are very high, though.
Oh. And NY Artists Unlimited does lots of shows for kids based on children's books. There's your justification for my mentioning any of this.
