Mike Daisey Panel

I know several of the NY bloggers have been participating in the Mike Daisey Sunday Roundtables -- has anybody written about them yet?

I will be part of the June 15th version entitled "Assembling Ensembles," which will also include John Collins and Colleen Werthmann of Elevator Repair Service, Tanya Selvararnam of the Builder's Association, Heidi Schreck from Two-Headed Calf, and freelance director Hal Brooks (Thom Paine and No Child). The roundatble happens after the 7:00 show at the Barrow Theatre at 27 Barrow Street.

I will be in NY from June 15th through the morning of the 18th, and would love to get together with any of my readers and fellow bloggers.

Coming up June 7th, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council is hosting a meeting called "Saving Our Cultural Capital."
