Talking Story #3……2012
We received great news today! We have been approved for our Central Park permit! Not exactly the spot I mentioned before, but a good option. We will be at an area near 67th St., called Middle Springs area. It is just behind Tavern on the Green and left of the Sheep Meadow. The huge benefit is that it has a very convenient bathroom! We will set up around 9AM and continue until 2PM, when we move back into Ethical Culture. More updates will follow about this exciting development.
On Saturday, I went to an event at “Church for All Nations”, the place we are doing the screening of Under the Boardwalk. This is quite an amazing space. Both architecturally and atmospherically, it will delight you. Since it is a smaller space than the Concert Hall, there is a possibility it will sell out quickly. Capacity here has to be limited to 250. On Thursday night, I think we will be OK with that limit, but I wanted to mention it.
There are now a full range of Fest tickets available, including day passes and what we call “segment” passes, which cover an afternoon or evening slot. We are still offering Full Festival passes, but have discontinued the “two-for’ option. Other additions that will be posted to the website today include some workshop topics, a skeletal schedule of the four Festival days and some information about the hotel situation.
See you in June.
