In case you were wondering, our North Fork bed and breakfast in East Marion sustained little destruction and stayed open for business throughout Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath. We suffered some small damage: trees and branches down, some fencing down and leaves and debris all over the place.
When we see how devastated people are in Staten Island and in New Jersey we are thankful that we only had some minor damage and lost power for three days. We are so grateful.
If you, like many along the east coast, are still without power, please come and stay with us. We have are regaining our calm and peace here. Our fireplaces are stoked and glowing to warm you.

As the weather gets colder, many of us are drawn to the movies. The theater provides a place to escape from the dark and murky atmosphere outside.
Along that same train of thought, a live stage play might be just the right activity for a chilly November night! There are two upcoming performances I want to share with you. One a comedy, the other a romantic tragedy. Make a night of theater a really romantic event with a stay at our Long Island bed and breakfast after the show.

The Best Play Ever Seriously!

Presented by the Guild Hall and The Naked Stage on November 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the John Drew Theater (158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY). FREE ADMISSION!
The Best Play Ever… Seriously! Is the story of Harris Fynneman, a neighborhood mailman and the “village idiot,” who awakens one morning after a drunken black out to discover he has written the best play ever… Seriously! Unfortunately, no one, including himself, believes this. With the help of his wife and a suspicious professor, Harris journeys to discover the terrifying truth behind his unintentional encounter with genius.

Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl

Presented by the Guild Hall and The Naked Stage on December 11 at 7:30 p.m.at the John Drew Theater (158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY). FREE ADMISSION!

Definitely one of my top three favorite Greek myths, the story of Eurydice and Orpheus is one of ego, all-engulfing love and the underworld. This performance is a re-telling of the ancient Orpheus myth from the female perspective of Eurydice.
The play follows Eurydice as travels into the Underworld, where she meets her father. In the Underworld, Eurydice re-learns language and memory until she has to make her ultimate decision – whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living.
This is going to be a very interesting bit of theater which I would love to see. On a side note, if you like the Orpheus story, there are two films I would also recommend: ‘Black Orpheus’ (or ‘Orfeu Negro,’ in Portuguese), a Brazilian film from 1959 and ‘Orfeu,’ a 1999 re-make of the 1959 film. The earlier film is highly acclaimed and the later very entertaining. Both are choked full of wonderful samba music and dance.
