Theater is alive

I took a theater appreciation class at my community college a few years ago (because I took theater in high school, and I won the best actor award of my graduating class, although I try not to brag about it too much almost 50 years later). There I learned that I could save money by buying rush tickets at the door at the so-called last minute. Discounts may vary in your location.

New York City will build 250 miles of protected bike lanes as part of a $1.7 billion street safety plan after spike in deaths

The plan could face many challenges. Bike lanes have often faced fierce opposition, including lawsuits and resistance from community boards that balk at having parking spaces removed and worry about the impact on local residents and businesses.
