In case you’re, as The Burning Bush suspects, one of those townie types who have difficulty with directions once you try to navigate NYC outside of Bushwick, then you’re in luck for the holiday season as House of Maybe plans to bring you an ambiguously described “Xmas Spectacular” that will, among other buzz words, involve some vague use of the concept that is Mariah Carey.
As the coordinator and choreographer of the event, Lance Lass, a 39-year-old former student of Juilliard who had to pursue other dreams when school was over, commented, “We are banking on a pretty big turnout with each show. And the reason we’re putting on so many this month is because it’s the closest thing this neighborhood’s got to the Rockettes.”
What Lass has failed to take into account is that the “kids” (meaning adult babies) these days don’t want the glitz and the glamor–the fanfare that once made NYC the only place to be during December. No, all they want is to binge watch Office Christmas Party intermixed with true holiday classics, Stranger Things and various other smatterings of video clips thrown in between for good measure. But then, how can any Bushwickian resist the promise of “milk and cookies”–the most analog and heart-melting symbol of all?
