The event was held at 7pm at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2, 196 Allen Street (between East Houston and Stanton) in NYC.
Watch Michael Emerson perform “To Be or Not to Be”
Three Day Hangover’s Big Boozy Benefit is generally a starry night of music and a kick-ass party. Michael Emerson performed Hamlet’s most famous soliloquy (To Be or Not to Be), there was an 80’s power ballad infused in Twelfth Night, a Romeo v. Mercutio rap battle, party games with a tipsy Yelena, a rockstar Duke kicking off the evening, and much more! The event was a created to raise some cash for Three Day Hangover’s 2014 Season, which will include alcohol-infused, innovative productions of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, and a never-before seen, Two-for-One Shakespeare mash-up.
Tickets to Three Day Hangover’s Big Boozy Benefit ranged from $50 to $100 and included drink tickets.
If you, as I, never heard of Three Day Hangover, I just learned that the it is a New York City theater company that produces fresh, unexpected, immersive, joyful productions of classic plays in bars. They tell great stories and celebrate some of the most beautiful language in the world. They meet their audiences on their own turf. They want their audiences to have a beer and relax, then to lean forward, and get swept up in a story told in a way they’ve never seen before. Three Day Hangover’s inaugural productions, enjoyed rave reviews, sold out runs, extensions, and most importantly, some of the feistiest, most engaged audiences midtown has ever seen. So, if you live in the NYC area or plan to visit, this is a good place to go to.

I guess there’s nothing more exhilarating to a fan than to accidentally bump into his or her favorite celebrity. Natalie Weiss, who, according to her website is a singer, an actress, a teacher, and a riffer (def.—in popular music and jazz—a short repeated phrase, frequently played over changing chords or harmonies or used as a background to a solo improvisation)(watch her videos on riffing here) was lucky enough to be in the same restaurant as Michael Emerson, and the rest is Twitter history:
