South of Broadway’s next play, “It’s Time to Bring Back Charlie,” opens in just under three weeks, on January 8th. (Get tickets now!) The play is set in New York City, and as it turns out, many members of the cast and crew have lived in New York at some point, including me. I found out what they loved about the Big Apple – and what they didn’t – where to get great pizza, and more.

One thought on “Setting: New York City

  1. I’m impressed! I’ve visited NYC and my Husband is from Brooklyn, but I’ve never lived or better yet studied theater there. I’m honored to be in such select company. Just call me Jocasta
