Thanks to everyone (around 100!) who came out for our sixth Food:Soul, Adam Szymkowicz’s Hearts Like Fists. This was a special Food:Soul for us, as our first Food:Soul was Adam’s Pretty Theft. It was also our second partnering with Judson Memorial Church’s Bailout Theater series, a relationship we’re hoping to deepen.

(*Remiss in our first posting was including a thank you to the businesses that provided food, including John’s Pizzeria of Bleecker Street, NoHo Deli and Juice Bar, and Norwich Meadows Farms, provider of the Judson Church Community Supported Agriculture program.)

It was also our first event after our 5th Annual Retreat, and so was the first chance to test out our newly articulated Core/Aesthetic Values and Mission in action. Part of that mission is to treat our audience as partners in our process, so if you were there, PLEASE share with us your thoughts in the comments section below. What were you favorite parts in the play? What worked at the event, and what could we do better?

To inspire you, here are some beautiful shots of the reading, all courtesy of Isaiah Tanenbaum.
