OH, WHAT A ’NIGHT’

The Waterloo Bridge Theatre Company’s recently acquired performance space in Park Slope is smaller than many people’s living rooms. The stage has only a few overhead lights and does not have a curtain. Yet it is in this tiny theater that some of the liveliest and most innovative Shakespeare you have ever seen is being performed. Comment.

THE SUNDANCE KIDS

The gift shop in the Salt Lake City airport is called West of Brooklyn. Did the owner know that there would be so many Brooklyn-based filmmakers attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival, down the road in Park City? Comment.

WHAT’S INSIDE THAT COUNTS

Some restaurants open like Athena popping forth from Zeus’ head - fully formed and ready for battle. Others, like Grand Central, a restaurant and bar in Williamsburg, take longer to evolve. Comment.

YOUTH CULTURE

You don’t have to convince Jay D. Meetze of the worthiness of Mozart’s "The Marriage of Figaro." Comment.

DANCE PARTY

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company celebrates its 20th anniversary beginning Feb. 3 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with a rare look back consisting of four repertory works and three New York premieres, including a new solo performed by Jones, "Chaconne." Comment.

Instead of parking yourself in front of your TV on Superbowl Sunday with a slice of mediocre pizza and a beer, why not go to 200 Fifth in Park Slope where you can park yourself in front of 10 TVs and enjoy an all-night open bar, the camaraderie of your fellow Brooklynites and an all-you-can-eat buffet for $40?
