When the Royal Shakespeare Company opens its production of Shakespearean classic As You Like It (which is right up there in popularity with Cymbeline) in New York this week, there is going to be one part missing: the skinning of a rabbit on stage. Why? Because New Yorkers are a bunch of wimps.

After a week of submersion in his captivating stunt bubble, New York will finally be relieved of magician David Blaine tonight as he plans to emerge from his freshwater aquarium. According to plans, Blaine will climb out, dramatically wrap himself in 150 lbs. of chains, and then re-enter the dunk tank to hold his breath for 9 minutes while breaking free from the bonds of publicity.

Lincoln Center's 'Big Woody Night'

Jesse · 11/29/05 01:31PM

We are on record as being, to our occasional embarrassment, tremendous Woody Allen fans, and, as such, we found it impossible to turn down a proffered invitation to schlep to Lincoln Center last night for not only a screening of his forthcoming project, Match Point, but also a pre-screening Q&A with the Woodman himself. This was particularly exciting for us because, while our parents once bumped into Woody and his child bride in a hotel in Venice, where our mother is convinced she delivered a charming witticism to him in the hotel's lobby, we've never actually seen the man except on film. We were curious to see the movie, and we were equally curious to see him in person.
