Spending the afternoon exploring ISYS ARCHIVE’s What We Wore project, daydreaming our way onto the memory lanes and into the outfits of our now-neighbors, worn and loved long before there was an Ace Hotel in Shoreditch or anywhere else.
In 1954, Barbara Ruben and her best friend Pam worked as seamstresses in Spitalfields. They waitressed together for a summer in East Sussex, and bought matching bikinis for the beach. Barbara still lives and works in the neighborhood.
Ace’s own actor and playwright Jesse Jensen created some serious magic in New York a few weeks ago with his one-night-only performance “The Untold Story of John Wilkes Booth.”
The one-man play, written by Jensen and directed by Adam Knight of Slant Theater Project, takes a unique and piercing look into the soul of America’s most notorious assassin. Jensen as John Wilkes Booth is charming, intense, intimate and even funny, as he exposes the complex life and times of the once famous actor and what drove him to shoot the President.
People came, they laughed, they cried, and apparently they are asking for more.
Go Jesse. We will be keeping our eyes open for the future of your play.
