Me and JP had fun on our date… thanks to my buddy @silentjames we went to a super awesome new #cynthiavonbuhler interactive play “The Brothers Booth” @gramercyplayersclub …so much fun, very talented actors and actresses - you really feel like you’ve stepped back in time to the 1920’s as a character in the world they created. JP was a bootlegger - everyone enjoyed his hooch - I mean “coffee” and I was an out of work singer. #nyc #play #speakeasydollhouse #brothersbooth @adefiantone #nicepic ?? 😋
I’m excited to say that I had a great experience at Cynthia’s immersive play based on her new book Speakeasy Dollhouse. I’m even more excited to report that I got to see the dollhouse sets in progress as she was shooting all the scenes depicting the murder mystery that hangs heavy in her family’s history. Now I’ve got my filthy mitts on a copy of said book and it’s just glorious! So much work went into making this odd work of art and it’s all been worth it.
