It’s that time of year again. Spring is quickly approaching and THE RIDE is ready to answer your entertainment needs. For our group and retail customers, the language RIDES return in March 2014. Featured languages are: French, Japanese, Spanish, and Portugeuse, with Chinese, Italian and Russian to be added. How this works is we provide one English speaking host and the other host speaks in the native tongue so none of the facts or humor are lost in translation. Everything else about THE RIDE stays the same.
So let us dazzle your groups….from all nations. Book now, as our Spring season is selling out fast. To book your groups for 2014, please contact Roderick Innes Smith @ 212-244-2551 x179 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you in NYC this spring.
STOMP celebrated its 20th anniversary this February! The show, which uses everyday items from garbage cans to brooms to create a unique percussion sound and theatrical performance, became part of the East Village community in 1994 at the Orpheum Theatre. In honor of the anniversary, THE RIDE hosted weekly ticket giveaways throughout the month.
Back in May 2013 those experiencing THE RIDE were treated to a special performance by the stars of the hit Off-Broadway comedy, How to Be a New Yorker. Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle performed the opening sketch for the show in which they are dressed in elderly garb, complaining of a bygone New York City before gentrification ruined all the fun.
How to Be a New Yorker is a ”Saturday Night Live” style comedy which features a hilarious look at New York’s 400 year history through short sketches performed only by Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle. Native New Yorkers, frequent commuters, and tourists alike will enjoy this show.
Last December, on a whirlwind 24-hour trip to New York City, Josh Young of Theme Park University and his brother managed to take in Billy Crystal’s new one-man show, 700 Sundays, and even traverse Sleep No More at the McKitrick Hotel. What impressed the brothers Young most, however, was “this little bus attraction called The Ride.”
While this wasn’t Josh Young’s first RIDE, he was engrossed by the experience all the same, deeming it “a Broadway show on wheels, where the city is the stage and you never know when you’re going to run across an actor hidden within the sidewalks waiting to perform just for your bus.”
Thorough and thoroughly enjoyable, Young’s first-hand account of THE RIDE experience, along with copious images and even videos, can be found here.
