Interesting Article on Tiffany and Company’s original location

At the end of book 5, chapter 4 of “A Hazard of New Fortunes,” Conrad Dryfoos, son of the millionaire backer “Every Other Week” goes by Brentano’s bookstore, right before he is shot and killed by a police officer during the start of the rail workers’ strike.  As this NY Times article relates, Brentano’s at the time was located at the South Corner of 15th Street and Union Square, in a building owned by Tiffany and Company, designed by John Kellum (who also designed the New York Herald Building at Broadway and Ann Street).

“Injunction Granted” now playing at the Metropolitan Playhouse

On the NYMASA blog, Ellen Gruber Garvey recommends “Injunction Granted” currently playing:

“The Metropolitan Playhouse, which specializes in reaching back for interesting revivals, is reviving a WPA Living Newspaper from 1937. The last one of these  they did was excellent. Passing the word along.
best,
Ellen Gruber Garvey”

Capital v. Labor

A living newspaper from 1937 tracing the battle for fair  wages, decent working conditions, and the right to organize, from the Dutch West India Company to US Steel.

The third in Metropolitan’s jubilant celebration of these social dramas created by the WPA, in the spirit ofPower and One Third of a Nation, this time with tumbling, music and clowns!
