Sunday April 15, 2018—Off Off Broadway matinee and early dinner

Nor’easter’s, more light and happiness too, as we rapidly approach the longer and warmer days of spring! While we have managed to engage and socialize with each other over the winter; the spring always brings a newness which is fresh and welcomed. We have the perennial friends we eagerly look forward to seeing each and every year. And of course there are the delightful annual friends, who are new, refreshing and bright; they are a very welcomed part of our proverbial “garden”.

The spring of 2018 is no exception to bringing us new annuals, reoccurring perennials and bright new social networking opportunities. We tip our “buds” to Joy who is a new annual from last year; she brings us a new event idea. She has made arrangements for us to see an off off Broadway theater production in the East Village on Sunday April 15th, she is also part of the production crew. We have done many different social oriented events over the past 23 years; this will be the first time we will take in a theater production. We are very excited about the social dynamics and interaction of sharing this sort of activity. We like to pride ourselves on promoting, finding, creating events which allow people who don’t know each other to have a nice natural and relaxed social interaction. Hopefully, this is something you too are looking for.

Following the 3:00 PM performance, we are planning on having dinner together at about 5:00, also in the East Village. We are still working on selecting a restaurant, but we can assure you the pricing will be moderate, in the 20.00 to $25.00 range for dinner plus beverages, tax, and tip. You are welcomed to join us for the dinner portion and order nothing more than a beverage if you would like.

Here is a little description of the show.

 

Verzet Amsterdam [Resistance Amsterdam], with its relevance to today’s global threats, dramatizes the true story of the valiant Dutch artists in World War II occupied Amsterdam who banded together to resist fascism and protect Jews from deportation and death. They came from differing artistic careers, races, religions and sexual identities. When their first efforts faced exposure, they decided on a more drastic and decisive action. Cellist Frieda Belinfante, poet Willi Arondeus, composer Jan Van Gilse, sculptor Gerrit Van Der Veen, museum curator Willem Sandberg and Surinamese Dutch  activist Anton de Kom risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbors .

 

“I only wish that my life will have been a life worth living…” Frieda Belinfante

“People will know that homosexuals have courage.” Willem “Willi” Arondeus.
