New York is an amazing place filled with hidden treasures. One of those treasures is the home theater in the loft of artist Suzanne Bocanegra and Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning composer David Lang. Suzanne and I used to work together and she came to my panel discussion with Chuck Close and Adam Gopnik last summer and invited me to do a show in her home. Last Friday, about 90 people crammed into a space that normally holds 40-50 to see my new perception show, tentatively titled “Accepting Mystery”. We had a very diverse New York crowd, ranging from writers and scientists to fashion models and artists, and it was wonderful to be able to try out some new material and hang out with the audience afterwards.
Thank you all for supporting the show, and thank you - Suzanne and David - for your incredible generosity!!
