The three things you need to know today in New York: Fri May 4

By Clayton Guse

1. Channel your inner Star Wars nerd at a live reading of Ian Doescher’s delightful Shakespearean adaptation of the space opera, The Empire Striketh Back, in which the actors play a drinking game with the audience while they perform. 

2. Munch on a Black and White doughnut from Doughnut Plant. The local chain just released a delectable riff on the iconic New York cookie. 

3. Catch a midnight screening of David Lynch’s cult classic film Blue Velvet at Nitehawk tonight. Be sure to show up at 11:45pm to get your drink order in.
