The Bowery Mission: My NYC Thanksgiving Tradition

by Lauren Malamala

I've made volunteering at the Bowery Mission my personal Thanksgiving tradition. 

Thanksgiving is the kickoff to my favorite time of year – the holiday season. Like most New York transplants, I don’t have any family in the city (or the entire Northeast, actually), so I’ve grown accustomed to spending turkey day with my best friends instead. To me, they’re family anyways.

Understudies Today, Broadway Stars Tomorrow

by Rori Nogee

Fans travel far and wide to see stars like Idina Menzel in If/Then. But often, understudies are the next big Broadway baby about to be born. {credit}

Imagine training your entire life for a coveted Broadway spot. You land an understudy role in your dream show, standing by for a well-known celebrity. After only two weeks of rehearsal, you wait in the wings every night, anticipating a chance in which you finally get to shine. Then, your big moment arrives. You make your entrance and you're met not by enthusiastic applause, but by an unsupportive crowd, many of whom leave or demand their money back, simply because you are not the celebrity they came to see.

A Boston Market 'Friendsgiving' for 8 in My NYC Apartment

by Tracy Kaler
I hosted a fabulous Friendsgiving meal for 8 in my NYC apartment with the help of Boston Market.

Since I'm spending time in Pennsylvania this week, I celebrated Thanksgiving with friends in the city before I left town. Our gathering last Thursday was my first 'Friendsgiving' for eight people in New York. I know what you're thinking. How did I manage dinner for eight in my New York apartment? Good question.
