#158 10 Minutes with Sam & Mel in NYC: A Night at the Theatre

The writing life can be tough sometimes and this week was no exception as we busied ourselves attending two theatre pieces; Antigone in Ferguson and Mojada.

You don’t need to know your Greek myths but it helps if you want to fully appreciate the political statement each piece makes.

The intention of original Greek theatre is to allow an audience to purge their emotions, and in both cases, Sam & I blamed the emotion of the theatre experience as we cried.

After such intense emotional connection it’s always good to have somewhere to go to debrief. In our case, we think we’ve found the perfect oasis in the Library Hotel on Madison Avenue – there are four hotels in the NYC Library Hotel collection, but for book lovers, it’s got to be Madison Avenue.

Listen to my conversation with Rob Rawlins, General Manager of the Library Hotel, at the end of this episode to find out why.
