You live in New York- starting enjoying living in the greatest city in the world. How? Well if you like theater, I have some amazing suggestions of things to see that will take you on a journey of self-discovery, entertainment, and thoughtful contemplation.  Here is a list of a few possibilities, but not anywhere near an exhaustive list:

•    HerStory:

Follow the lives of four women who are poets-by-night and during their off hours are dealing with the struggles of vanity, cultural confusion and difficult life circumstances.  There will be a performance of HerStory on March 7th at 7:30pm at the Kumble Theatre for the Performing Arts, at 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, New York. For more information call 718-488-1624.

•    The Male Ego:

March is “Women’s History Month” and in recognition of this the Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts is inviting women over the age of 18 to take part in a unique presentation of theater which will include a provocative discussion. Five men will reveal their innermost feelings and thoughts as they relate to the western Freudian concepts which our society uses to explain typical male behavior. Join in this unique experience on Wednesday, March 9th, at 7:30pm at the Kumble Theatre for the Performing Arts, at 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, New York. For more information call 718-488-1624.

•    Compulsion:

This is the world premiere of the story of Sid Silver, who in 1951 decides that he is on a mission to guard and disseminate what is one of the 20th century’s most moving and provocative accounts of the 20th century, Anne Frank’s diary. Compulsion was inspired by the story written by Meyer Levin, and brings together playwright Rinne Groff and Director Oskar Eustis for an unforgettably powerful production guaranteed to challenge and entertain. A co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre and Yale Repertory Theatre featuring Hannah Cabell, Matte Osian and Mandy Patinkin. The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street,  NY, NY. For more information call  212-539-8500. From now until March 13th.
