Hi, Jonathan! I saw Every Day a Visitor
last night. It was very well done. Old age and impending death are difficult topics to deal with and this show does a wonderful job presenting these topics from a positive and optimistic perspective. I will be using the dining certificate another time to stretch out the experience. Many thanks again for everything!

“I was walking through Riverside Park one afternoon in the spring of 2004, stopped on the North Patio and looked up at the Solders’ and Sailors’ Monument. I realized that the patio with its stone walls and benches, with the stairs right there, served as a three-quarter thrust stage. I used to hold informal readings in my apartment and out of one of those readings came our first production of The Tempest.” And that’s how producing artistic director Nicholas Martin-Smith discovered the unconventional yet ideal summer stage for his then-new company, Hudson Warehouse. We asked Mr. Martin-Smith and assistant artistic director Susane Lee about the ten-year evolution of what has become the Upper West Side’s most popular outdoor theater.
