What a week!  I swear this stuff ONLY happens in New York!

New York City Neal B Style!

New York City Neal B Style!

Here’s a recap of this week for you!

  • New Opportunities and New Events! I officially become part of the ArtofTalk.tv family! I am on board with them as a web-video entertainment & events correspondent.  So tune in to see all the fantastic content on their page (and of course Elisa’s amazing editing skills put to work!). Press release here

  • Monday’s “Miscast”. The week started off with going to Miscast 2010 is a musical presentation of Broadway stars singing songs from roles for which they would never be cast (for example, last year Alice Ripley belted Sweeney Todd’s “My Friend”).  Cast included: Mo Rocca (The Daily Show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! on NPR) and will feature songs by Raúl Esparza (Company), Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Mille, The Drowsy Chaperone), Montego Glover (Memphis), Ana Gasteyer (SNL alumna, The Royal Family, Wicked), Marin Mazzie (Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, Passion), David Miller (Il Divo), Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Wicked), and Tom Wopat (Catch Me If You Can, Tarzan). Here’s the article Here are a few pictures from the event

  • My Faceoff with Facebook.  The “F” word began my faceoff with Facebook.  My account was banned (hopefully temporarily).  So much for freedom of speech!  I should have learned by now! Click here for the full story

  • “Law” in Jersey.  Thanks to On Locations Vacations, we got the tip that “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” would be willing in Fort Lee, New Jersey (right over the bridge). Law and Order: SVU is a favorite show of ours and having already saw the production team in action in NYC, we decided to pay a visit to the set.  Surprisingly. we were the only outlet there.  Maybe it was because it was cold?  My hunch was because it was Jersey!  No one wanted to cross the bridge! For the video and pictures click here

  • Nude and Nature. Elisa and I went to the village for a brand new art installation, which is getting huge buzz!  Brian Reed’s “Through the Heart of It All” combines artistic nudity, spirituality and nature for a beautifully done masterpiece.  For more information go to: For pictures and video, please click here

  • “Hair” today, gone tomorrow.   The Broadway revival cast of Hair is going to London (don’t worry- amazing replacements are coming in!) so Elisa and I were there to say farewell to some of the most amazing performers on Broadway!  THANKS ELISA FOR THE TICKETS!!  Sitting with the stars and fans, the show was purely raw, filled with intense emotion.  Click here to see some pictures/videos from the stage

VIDEO: Watch the final moments with the audience here

On March 7, 2010 the cast of the Broadway revival of Hair took their final bow on US soil.  The Broadway cast is going to London (don’t worry- amazing replacements are coming in!).  This is a show that relies heavily on personalities and interpretation.  They have not only been tremendous performers, but the cast clearly echos the theme of “love”.   Elisa and I were there to say farewell to some of the most amazing performers on Broadway!  THANKS ELISA FOR THE TICKETS!!  Sitting with the stars and fans, the show was purely raw, filled with intense emotion.

LAW AND ORDER SVU FILMING
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 6, 2010
Featuring Kathy Griffin, Christopher Meloni, Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T, Sutton Foster, Bryce Ryness

First of all, WOW!  On Wednesday, January 6, 2009,  I was able to meet one of my favorite comediennes and all around inspirations!  I had the fortune of seeing her film a guest appearance for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.  My amazing friend Elisa is a trooper and stayed with me for about nine hours on the set!  Since I am at a loss here is Elisa wrote at her blog (AKA CHECK OUT HER AWESOME BLOG!):

Today, on my lunch break from work, I returned to the set of Law & Order: SVU and met friend and fellow blogger, Neal B.

During my 1.5 hour lunch break we saw a protest for equality and Kathy Griffin giving an empowering speech. Yes, It was all for the upcoming Feb. 10th episode of the show but oh, the magic of filmmaking, it all seemed so real.

A group of protestors (extras) surrounded Griffin, who plays a lesbian activist, after she was introduced by Broadway star,Sutton Foster (Shrek). SVU member, Detective Tutuola (Ice-T) was in the crowd keeping a watchful eye. After they finished filming the scene, Neal and I stood by watching the actors head to their trailers, greeting Ms. Foster with a “Sutton, We love you!” and grabbing a picture with Ice-T. We began wandering around the seemingly endless blocks filled with equipment, trailers and everything you can think of, hoping to catch another glimpse of Ms. Griffin! (more…)
