March On NYC.

Dear Friends,

On Monday, we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and we find that so many of his profound words still have so much meaning in today’s world.
One of his most famous quotes reads: Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

And it is in that spirit that we are writing to you. The Women’s March Alliance is organizing a march this Saturday and we wanted to urgently invite you to join. We received the following email yesterday from ATPAM:

Dear Member of ATPAM –

I invite you to join IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb, myself and sisters and brothers from other IATSE NY area locals as we take to the streets for the New York City Women’s March this coming Saturday, January 20. The march begins at 11am and will go down Central Park West, across Central Park South and down 6th Avenue, ending at 43rd Street at around 4pm.

Meeting place for the IATSE cohort will be on Central Park West between 65th and 66th Streets, near the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Look for the IATSE signs!

Bring a sign (no wood or metal), do your vocal warmups (so they can hear us down in Washington!) and keep an eye on the weather reports to dress accordingly. Comfortable shoes are a must.

If you can’t attend the march in New York, check with your local labor council – either city or state – to find out where people are marching in your area.

Let’s keep the pressure on and continue to make noise about issues that affect working men and women across this country.

I hope to see you on Saturday!

In solidarity,

Nick

We suggest that you support this powerful movement—even if you cannot make it to the march, there are many ways to support it. For you, for your daughters, for your mothers, for your sisters, for your great-great-granddaughters.

“Me” Off-Broadway

Dear Friends,

We have just returned from our wonderful vacation—it was so nice to spend some quality time with our daughter and granddaughters.

As the summer winds down and we’re gearing up for an exciting Fall season, we just wanted to take a moment to recommend an off-Broadway musical for you: Me The People.

The zingy songs aim at the misguided, hypocritical and tragically unfit people who rep us in Washington remind us how important satire is at a time of national upheaval. The rousing finale is nothing short of brilliant. It alone is worth the price of admission.”—The Huffington Post

It is showing at the Triad Theatre on 72nd Street and they are currently selling tickets through October 01, 2017.  I know that we’ve said it before, but this is a show you definitely do not want to miss!

Me The People

Dear Friends,

We want to share an off-Broadway musical with you today called Me The People: The Trump America People.  It is currently showing at the Triad Theatre on West 72nd Street.

It is “just what the columnist ordered—an uproarious take on the craven, self-dealing Trump agenda intent on tearing down our government and building a stupid wall. The show delivers a topical, up-to-the minute mockumentary of red-white-and-orange America.”
me the people
Sarah Downs from Front Row Center says that it is “a clever, satirical revue set to tunes from the Supremes to the Eagles to CeeLo Green. The talented quartet of Aisha Alia Dukes, Mitchel Kawash, Richard Spitaletta and Mia Weinberger sing with exuberance and commitment, doing hilarious impressions of everyone from Sigmund Freud to Jared Kushner to Hillary Clinton.”

Tickets are on sale through September 02, 2017—you definitely don’t want to miss this!  To learn more or buy tickets, click here.

Best regards,
Philp and Marilyn
