It’s always fun when, out of the blue, good publicity comes along. Thanks to my next-door neighbor, Amsale, I was part of a wonderful story in Friday’s Wall Street Journal, talking about how two creative neighbours have effected each other’s apartments and lifestyles. Amsale creates wonderful wedding dresses, which are very similar in emotion to my work.
On Thursday night last week I went to see Billy Elliot, which I’ve been wanting to see for a long time. (I have clients fly back to England twice to be able to see the show a second time.) I don’t know if you know that there are three leads in their early teens who alternate every day. The main character is on-stage 90% of the play – we saw David Alvarez in the lead. It was an incredible performance, with music by Elton John. David is twice as special as his parents are Cuban, you know…the Latin connection! The audience was packed and it was a magical theater evening. You should try to see it if you’re going to be in New York, but let me warn you: get your tickets in advance – these ones are hard to get a hold of! My date for the evening was Linda O’Keefe (the Director of Design and Architecture at Metropolitan Home), who told me that a job that we photographed a few months ago will be featured in the October issue of Met Home. Wait until you see it – it’s a colorful one
(I’m a proud father today. One of my guppies just had babies – a baby, uhm, guppy shower will be announced in the near future.)
