Insanely, ridiculously, off-my-feet busy today -- so busy that I left my prompt book in Brooklyn and have to run back to get it before rehearsal starts at 1:00. It's always something... I knew I was leaving something behind this morning, but couldn't figure out it until I got to Hell's Kitchen, where our rehearsal space is. I kept clutching for things -- phone? check; sunglasses? check; iPod? check; wallet? check -- it didn't occur to me that the missing item was the single biggest thing in my messenger bag. Sigh.
Anyway, tonight my pals Alison Gaylin and Jason Starr (and, I hear, the legendary Ken Bruen) are reading from their works at The Mysterious Bookshop in Tribeca. The event starts at 6:30, but I don't get out of rehearsal until 8:00 ... I hope someone will send me a text message to let me know where they go, if I miss them at the store.
But if you're in NY tonight and not in rehearsal, you have no excuse. Go see them. Maybe I'll meet you there.
