I think that's my play going for this season. There's nothing else on the horizon right now. It's been a terrific season. From a small New England town in "Our Town" to a bar in the Congo in "Ruined" I feel that I've seen the world and had my world changed without even leaving New York.

I Love the Night Life (7)
On Friday night I had the good fortune to see the play, "Ruined." This year's Pulitzer Prize for drama, it's set in the Congo and tells the story of people trying to survive in a terrible situation. The acting was superb, and despite the tragic background and events it's a hopeful play. I saw it as a benefit for a terrific group, "Women to Women International" and had the an opportunity after the play to hear the author, Lynn Nottage, and members of the cast discuss the play. Women to Women does terrific work around the world supporting women in areas that have been affected by civil war and unrest.
