Mo Pitkin’s responds to the NY Post
the Minsky Follies @ Mo Pitkins – Mar 28, 2007 (CRED)
The Post ran a story that didn’t actually say that Mo Pitkin’s was definitely closing – especially right away. Mo Pitkin’s decided to write this defensive response anyway, which – like the Post story – doesn’t really say anything definitive either….
Dear Friends of Mo’s,
You may have read that Mo’s is closing. The Post, as usual, mixed fact and fiction, in Wednesday’s piece. We are listening to offers for the building at 34 Avenue A, but will do everything we can to keep the business intact.
Mo’s has become a cherished performance space in a very short amount of time thanks to you, our talent, and you, our audience. As everyone knows, running a performance space in NYC is a daunting proposition, but we’re proud that Mo’s has been able to stick to its mission: showcasing great East Village/Lower East Side performers and cultivating the next generation of talent.
We’ll continue trying to fulfill that mission — and our doors remain open, for business as usual. Your House of Satisfaction continues…so come visit, and come often!
Jesse & Phil
* Mo Pitkins is for sale, and will probably close
