My friends Harry Einhorn and Lia Tamborra with orchestrations by Bálint Varga wrote an excellent musical about Hypatia, the last librarian of the Library of Alexandria.
Last night I got to host them and 20 of my friends for a reading at my apartment in NYC.
Set during the apocalyptic end times of the Roman Empire, this immersive, multi-sensory theatrical experience is based on the raucous festivals of ancient Rome and Egypt. One thing is for certain: it’s like no toga party you’ve attended before.

- I emailed about about 40 friends last week to see if their schedule was open on April 30th, 2019. 20 people replied in the affirmative.
- I made this page on Splash for my friends to RSVP on.
- Mike Smith again helped set up and run the bar and manage a bunch of logistics, thank you Mike! He helps me with a bunch of my events and I couldn’t host nearly as frequently as I do without his help.
- It was AWESOME!! SO MUCH FUN to host this incredible play in a workshop / reading format in the intimate environment of my apartment.
- I first saw Hypatia staged at Caveat, a great event space in NYC.
- I wish there were live theater like this at Meow Wolf.
