New Year's Eve with the Performance Club

What are you doing on the 31st? Something festive and special to mark the end of the beginning of the 21st Century? (It can’t be too far now to 2012.)

What better way to celebrate than by honoring the beginning of the end of a great New York institution? The venerable Ohio Theatre is throwing a New Year’s Eve dance party at its beautiful, longtime home on Wooster Street in SoHo – a home that it will have to vacate in August, as Manhattan’s relentless real estate tide continues, somehow, to claim arts victims.

Doors open at 10 p.m. on an open bar, DJ Silky and lots of dancing. Stay as late as 2:30 a.m., and pay just $75 in advance, $100 at the door. Those of you who missed the P. Club’s PS party, here’s your chance to get happy with a slew of downtown performance folks, including Robert Lyons, the Ohio’s fearless leader since 1988.
