With each change of the seasons, New York City has a remarkable way of reinventing herself. Beginning with the reawakening in spring to an enthusiastic, nearly euphoric vibe as summer spreads across the city, “Lady Liberty” continues her vigilant watch over both residents and visitors alike.
The Big Apple and all of the eclectic neighborhoods and boroughs that make it one of the world’s most dynamic destinations, is also home to a thriving, cultural collage of people who walk, ride, bike, and jog to the beat of a musicality that is unique to summer in this city.
This is no more evident than in the ever-changing montage of the performing arts. Music, theater, dance, and the avant-garde collide in parks, streets, rooftops, and theaters, creating a delicious mix that is reflected all over the city that never sleeps.
Emmy Award winning film, television and stage actor Joe Morton is part of this thriving community. Born in Harlem and raised in a military family he spent a great deal of his early life in West Germany and Okinawa before completing his schooling in New York at Hofstra University.
