Tom has got another solo show at 440 Gallery, and once again, he's commissioned me to write a play based on a photo of his (I chose the above). It's called "The Mermaid Won't Sing," directed by Christie Clark, featuring Shannon Marguerite as Aphrodite the mermaid, and Jacob Grigolia-Rosenbaum as Barnaby. The play will run one afternoon only, Sat., July 18 at 4:30 and 6PM.
Tom has many events for his show. This Saturday, there's an opening reception, 5-8. Sat. the 25th, I'm giving a talk on mermaids (really not for children, nor is the play) at 4. Sun. August 2nd, Jody Mullen is singing a pop and standards set; and Sunday, August 9th, there's a closing reception, 4-7.
440 Gallery is at 440 Sixth Avenue (near Ninth Street) in Brooklyn, New York. The nearest trains are the G, F, R at 4th Avenue/Ninth Street. For more information, www.tombovo.com or www.440gallery.com
