As we get closer to Christmas, the citizens of Party Town begin to flee. Festive occasions thin out this time of year.
The Coast of Utopia: Part II – Shipwreck opening. Vivian Beaumont Theater, Lincoln Center, 150 W. 65th St., nr. Broadway, 6:45 p.m. If you don’t already have tickets to Tom Stoppard’s trilogy, too bad. By the time you read this, even the 3 p.m. matinee on New Year’s Eve will be sold out. You’ll have to see Billy Crudup and Ethan Hawke another time. Just rent Big Fish and Gattaca — it’s the same thing.
