It's a rainy Monday. You could stay home tonight, listen to jazz and make a pot of coffee, or you could do what I strongly suggest you do and catch an unforgettable performance by Irish actress Geraldine Hughes in Belfast Blues, her extraordinary one woman show playing at The Barrow Street Theatre tonight (take the 1 Train to Christopher Street).

It’s a rare opportunity for New Yorkers to see the acclaimed Irish actress (who nowadays stars alongside Hollywood heavyweights like Clint Eastwood and Sylvester Stallone) in the show that made her famous and for that reason it’s already selling out: it’s the kind of play that people who have seen it will press your hand and insist you do likewise. It's only performed on Monday night's at 8PM though April 26. Don't miss it!
