Last weekend, I caught up with BD Wong at the Maravel Arts Center on 445 W. 45th St. in New York, where he was rehearsing a number which will be performed in “Passing It On: An Evening of Mentorship to Benefit Rosie’s Theater Kids,” on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 W. 55th St. @ 9th Ave in New York.
BD will also be hosting the event, (also honoring Tom Viola, Executive Director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids), which features Rosie’s Theater Kids alongside Derick K. Grant, Brandon Victor Dixon, Zakiya Young, and special taped video appearances by Audra McDonald and John Tartaglia. A highlight of the evening is sure to be an original piece conceived and co-written by BD, in which he will perform with 11 of the children from the “Rosie’s Theater Kids” program.
In Manhattan, thousands of children live near the “Great White Way” but never have the opportunity to step inside one of the theaters and experience Broadway. As Rosie O’Donnell says, it’s “like living in Hawaii and not having access to the beach.”...

JEREMY LIN IN THE LOCKER ROOM - PHOTO BY SUZANNE JOE KAI
I spent the day today watching a Knicks game. This time it wasn't on a television screen from California but up close, live and in person at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
I was on the court, literally, at today's pre-game practice, behind the scenes embedded with veteran sports reporters, at the pre and post game press conference with the coach, and yes - in the locker room with Jeremy Lin.
Stay tuned soon for our feature on Jeremy Lin, Mr. Linsanity himself. Meanwhile, we have posted a few photographs from today.
The greatest thing about Linsanity is that Jeremy Lin can win, he can lose, but he has already achieved the near impossible.
In just a few short weeks, he's turned a country on its head and made it examine how Asian Americans are viewed in the mainstream.
As we watched him in person today, we saw a very talented 23 year old basketball player with a great career ahead of him.
We also thought of the historical milestone he has already achieved - for all of us.

CollaborationTown (The Play About My Dad, The Momentum) presents the World Premiere of THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER: THE CATHARSIS OF PATHOS by Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell with music by Michael Wells. Directed by Lee Sunday Evans and Jordan Seavey, previews begin March 9 at the New Ohio Theatre. An acclaimed 2006 production of this Brecht satire won an Outstanding Playwrighting Award at FringeNYC; this newly revised, reworked production is slated for opening on Wednesday, March 14.
Before Mother Courage there was Mother LaMadre. In THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER, an unrivaled masterpiece of modern dramatic writing, our antiheroine Mother LaMadre and her rag-tag crew drag their wagon through the Fifth World War and the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland that is New Europe. Together they must navigate all the pitfalls (and rewards) of the dramatic art of drama to find the few remaining books the art-abolishing Evil Empire have yet to destroy and maybe, just maybe, find a way to replace violence with art. If the zombies don’t eat them first, that is.
The production stars Jordan Barbour, Carly Cioffi, Nick Choksi, John Halbach, Boo Killebrew, Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell, Chinasa Ogbuagu, Phillip Taratula, Emily Walton and TJ Witham. The creative team includes set and props by Deb O, costumes by...
