Matt Dentler at indieWIRE is quite impressed by the “cool shows” in comedy, music and film, at 92YTribeca, and seems genuinely surprised that this all happens while being located in – gasp! – NOT Brooklyn! Kids these days.
“If you live in Manhattan,” Matt said, “you usually have to make the trip to Williamsburg to get this kind of eclectic, indie-minded programming. Now you just have to head down to Hudson and Canal.”
I’d heard about the 92Y Tribeca as more and more cool shows became booked on their calendar. Impressive comedy lineups featuring Zach Galifinakis and Eugene Mirman, music lineups featuring St. Vincent and Yo La Tengo, and film lineups that include sing-a-long shows and festival favorites.
Matt went on to praise 92YTribeca curator Cristina Cacioppo, who he says, “is on a mission to offer some quality alternatives,” in film screening and series. It is praise well deserved.
