Where are you from? What neighborhood do you live in now?
I'm from Pittsford, NY (a suburb of Rochester) and live in Prospect Heights.
If you had to describe BAM to someone who had never heard of us using only metaphors that involve dessert, what would you say?
You know how, on a hot day, you sometimes realize you really NEED ice cream, stat? And there's one of those kind of sad-looking frozen yogurt trucks with little pictures of fruit on it, right on the corner, and you could do that! But what you REALLY want is a big, beautiful Mr. Softee twist cone covered in rainbow sprinkles, and you will happily walk an extra 4 blocks to get it. Well, anyway, sometimes that happens to me. And (in case it wasn't clear) when I want to see a movie or anything else, BAM is Mr. Softee.
If the world was ending and you could only save one artist you've seen at BAM, who would it be and why?
I don't want anyone to feel slighted here, but I think for RIGHT NOW I'd go with Hannibal Buress, because a) he's still alive and b) he's saying some funny things that everyone else who's alive should probably pay attention to.
How do you plan on indulging your art habit with the new BAM Membership?
I've recently learned to love seeing movies alone (less awkward waiting in the lobby, simplified popcorn politics!) and when I do that, I almost always do it at BAM. I'm also hoping to re-activate my dormant theater subscription this year because it feels good for me, in the same way that I imagine the yoga I don't do would feel.
Indulge your art habit with the new BAM Membership and enjoy half off stages and screens.
