Our Artistic Director Vallejo Gantner was featured in The Wall Street Journal’s article, Fall Forward: Insiders’ Picks for the Arts & Entertainment Season

One of his picks was an artist formerly featured on PS122’s stages:
“I am excited to see Gisèle Vienne’s “Kindertotenlieder” at New York Live Arts. PS122 hosted her NYC debut some years ago with a harrowing piece about a serial killer called Jerk, which was also a collaboration with NYC poet and writer Dennis Cooper. Her work is always incredibly powerful—visually overwhelming, scary and thrilling.”

Claire Danes was on the Mark Marin WTF Podcast this week discussing her career, jogging, and what’s its like to be a mom. Her story of how she got into acting started with dance and at age 6 she performed on PS122’s stage “I was a duck, and I quacked.” She also performed two evening-length shows when she was a bit older, Christina Olson, American Model and Edith & Jenny both by choreographer Tamar Rogoff.

Thanks to Joe Donahue for sending this along to us. You can listen to the entire episode on the WTF site.

Mindy Kaling was interviewed on yesterday’s Howard Stern show and in discussing her breakout play Matt & Ben which she created with Brenda Withers, called PS122 “this really cool institution downtown.” Thanks for the shoutout Mindy! We have followed Mindy’s career enthusiastically and hope she can come see the new building when its finished!

The rain is gone for the day so come out to our Season Launch party tonight on Gawker’s amazing Soho rooftop! We just noticed that if you search for “Season Launch Party 2014″ we are the top result on google, so you can’t say you couldn’t find the info. Tickets are available at the door and it’s open bar and sliders (and veggie sliders too this year). See you soon!
