St. Patrick's Day Parade

"Whether you hail from the Emerald Isle is of no consequence—on St. Patrick's Day, everyone can lay claim to being at least a little bit Irish (even the City's bagels and beer, which can be got in green for the occasion). The parade itself lays claim to being the oldest (it was first held in 1762) and largest of its kind in the world. Clad yourself in kelly for the event and watch bagpipers, marching bands and assorted revelers from near and far as they march up Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street. The parade starts at 11am and typically ends between 4:30 and 5pm" --nycgo.com

Obie Award-winning theater companies Ripe Time and The Play Company offer a physical theater piece adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story Sleep (Nemuri). New York-based director Rachel Dickstein leads a trailblazing creative team of women including text by Japanese-American playwright Naomi Iizuka and set design by Obie Award and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner Mimi Lien.
