This Week In Modern Fabulousity - April 23, 2006

A special installment of TWIMF, highlighting two upcoming cultural extravaganzas performed by ModFab readers. If anyone else has a cultural masterpiece planned in the near future, shoot us an email and we'll plug you too!

May 4-7, 2006 - TINY THEATER!
8pm - The Ontological-Hysteric Theatre, St. Mark's Church
10th Street at 2nd Avenue, NYC
Discount Tickets (only $10!) at OvationTix
An adorable festival at the house that Richard Foreman built, Tiny Theater is a curated evening of eight pieces, each under 10 minutes, performed in a (tiny) 6'x6'x6' space. On the bill is ModFab regular/actress Shannon Maddox, who performs the solo work Barely There by legendary experimental playwright Charles Borkhuis (and directed by the most underrated director in the country in our opinion, Juanita Rockwell). Also on the bill is the lovely, talented, and always interesting Temple Crocker, in her latest piece Residue. It's so much theatre packed into a small space (and small price) that it's simply unmissable. Reserve your seats now with the special-secret discount link. (And we'll all be there to cheer you on, Shannon!)

May 16, 2006 - Dennis Blackwell, baritone
7:30pm - Great Music Series, St. Bartholomew's Church
109 E. 50th Street, NYC
Tickets at The Bookstore
Those of you who have heard the voice of Mr. ModFab (more regularly known as The Super-Fine Mr. Blackwell) know that he's a rare talent...as his recent gigs at New York City Opera, Caramoor, and City Center Encores can attest. The beautiful cathedral at St. Bart's is unbelievable, and Dennis (performing with accompanist Elizabeth Hastings) is taking great advantage of it, performing works by Handel, Haydn, Rossini...and for the first time in New York, Ralph Vaughn Williams' cycle Five Mystical Songs. With a guest-starring appearance by mezzo soprano Jessica Bowers, it's a feast for the ears and soul.
