Entrance stairs at Astor Place Theatre for the Blue Man Group.
Since I have a cat named Blue …
,,, and he’s not in the photo, I wanted a non-English word for the color. Some were too close to the original, bleu (French). Others were too far apart, zelena (Slovenian). The Dutch word is blauw, but New York really doesn’t do much with its Dutch heritage. New York doesn’t do much with any heritage. The city is all about ‘What are you going to do for me tomorrow?’. But I digress. Latin was the right mix of obscure and familiar (cerulean), as well as being a pretty word.
Thank you for reading,
