See Emojiland Off-Broadway For A Damn Funny & Endearing Performance
Get ready to feel the whole gamut of emotions tonight. First, cozy up over dinner at small, family-owned brick-oven pizzeria, Capizzi, where Neapolitan-style pies are served up in an old-fashioned space. You’ll feel totally at home while you split a Pizza del Nonno (crushed San Marzano tomatoes, pecorino romano, and parmesan cheese topped with olive oil, anchovies and roasted garlic). The restaurant was dreamed up from the memories of owner Joseph Calcagno’s childhood in the Brooklyn pizza shops of his Italian-born parents and grandparents, as well as his “Nonna’s” kitchen. Their artichoke special pizza rivals another certain well-known NYC pizza spot.
Next, it’s time to enjoy Emojiland, one of the fabulous productions out of The New York Musical Festival, currently running from now through March 19th. Inspired by The Unicode Standard, this electric ensemble piece explores the interconnected lives of emojis inside a smartphone, whose existence becomes increasingly complicated after a software update. A 2018 Richard Rodgers Award Finalist, and starring the best and brightest in the business, this show will have you in stitches from beginning to end.
