What should I do next week in NYC?

In an effort to distract myself from my life, I've decided to spend next week in NYC. I've never been, and am getting a little overwhelmed trying to decide what to do there. Oh yeah, and I'd like to not have to sell my firstborn to pay for everything. [more inside]

How do I contact English, Literature, and Drama teachers in NYC?

I want to offer super-cheap ($10 to free) Shakespeare tickets to educators and their students in the NYC area. I'm interested in contacting both high school and college teachers. Would they likely welcome this or consider it spam? Is there some kind of message board or other resource I can use to contact these folks.

Awesome show to see tomorrow in NYC?

Should we see "Wicked" on Broadway, or something else? My friend and I want to see a show tomorrow, Sunday Oct. 30. She still remembers seeing "Phantom of the Opera" in London with Sarah Brightman. We're pretty sure we can't get in to see "Book of Mormon". Tasteful-ish is important (so, no Avenue Q). Suggestions? [more inside]

Can you walk? You can? Then get out of the damn elevator!

If a building (in New York City) is listed as being accessible for disabled people, are you allowed to ask them if they're disabled before letting them use the elevator and deny them access to it if they say they're not? (I know this sounds offensive. It offends me. Please read the rest before judging. Thanks.) [more inside]

How to get tickets for NYC Shakespeare in the Park

Hi all! NYT covered Shakespeare In The Park 2010 which looks great: It mentions tickets are handed out for free from 1pm on show day. Anyone have experience with how long the queues are / when I should be there to stand a chance? Is 10am early enough? Sadly I'm only here Sat/Sun and we'd probably be angling for Sun. thanks!

Cheap tickets, without the lineup?

In an effort to avoid spending half my trip to NYC in the line-up at TKTS, I'd found the www.entertainment-link.com site, for discount theatre tickets. Problem is, I can't find much info on it, and I'm nervous i'll be handing my credit card number to some nefarious entity. Anyone have any experience with the site, or, alternatively, another recommendation for avoiding long TKTS lines? [more inside]
