In an era when Broadway productions cost tens of millions of dollars, money spent on pyrotechnics and special effects in an effort to make the live theater experience more cinematic, the Bay Street Theatre’s new artistic director has a very different vision.
Essentially, Scott Schwartz asks a simple question: What does live theater offer that other entertainment mediums can’t?
A Long Island Rail Road train headed for Montauk is being held up in Amityville after it struck and killed a man on the tracks on Saturday afternoon.
As police investigated, between 110 and 150 passengers were stuck on the eastbound train, which left Jamaica at 12:10 p.m. The accident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. The train was due in Montauk at 3 p.m.
Trains were delayed in both directions. Though service was expected to be restored soon, trains will be bypassing the Amityville station during the investigation.
