I rambled at great length about a Brooklyn Rail interview with Hoch awhile back, but suffice to say that his one-man show about gentrification in Williamsburg has been a hit, both here and during its earlier run at the Berkely Repertory Theater. The Public Theater recently extended the show's run until December 21st, meaning lazy folk like me can potentially see it after they finish work for the winter holidays. Given the place Crown Heights occupies on the fault lines of gentrification, I'm really going to try to see this play, and I'm hoping to drag some fellow Franklin Ave-rs along to pick their brains about it afterwards.
Hoch's website is here.
