Here’s the thing about Carnegie: it’sÂ comfy.Â It’s like sleeping on a well-stuffedÂ elder-down bed.
You might think it’d intimidating or overwhelming to play that hall, but it’s not â€“ it’s easy. It’s the way thingsÂ always should be.
Dressing rooms: A+. Not a wire hanger in sight. Great water pressure on the toilet flush.
OneÂ surprise: the conductor’s stand was a Wenger. Like, a 1980’s TopekaÂ band room model. Let’sÂ class it up a little, shall we Carnegie!?
Tip: if you’re planning to snap a photo during the concert, honey, you’d better do it fast â€“ the Carnegie ushers have ninja-like reflexes (they were likely falcons in a previousÂ life) and they will not hesitate to defend their gloriousÂ hall from empixelationÂ on your device.
Recommended: Dino’s Shoe Repair for a first-rate shoe shine, and the Columbus Circle Whole Foods for aÂ great pre-show dinner andÂ a VERY intimidating â€“ but well-organized â€“ check-out experience.
