If you’re in New York City and enjoy art and museums and are looking for something to do tonight, check out the Museum Mile Fest. Fifth Avenue is closed to traffic between the Met and the Museo del Barrio, and nine museums are free between 6:00-9:00. The event kicks off at 5:45 at the Guggenheim. It looks as though there will be tons of street art, music, and great people watching.
Since I museumed yesterday (and since my Whitney badge gets me into museums for free all summer) I will be heading to Phil’s BMI Lehman showcase to observe presentations from the future of musical theatre. How often can you say that? (Yes, the music and lyrics winners from Next to Normal went to BMI, and yes they gave the workshop a shout out during their Tony acceptance speech).
