To Do Monday: Studio Visit

It’s a Monday night without much to do—the social season hasn’t ramped up yet, and what few worthwhile plays are still on have taken the night off. We’re trying to decide which cabaret show to take our out-of-town uncle to: there’s Tony-winner Linda Lavin, performing at 54 Below (the location that once upon a time was Studio 54—we’ll be pondering Drew Barrymore’s childhood all night!) while Woody Allen performs his Monday-night jazz act at the Carlyle for any To Rome With Love fan with a $135 minimum cover burning a hole in his or her pocket!

54 Below, 254 West 54th Street, 7pm; Café Carlyle, 35 East 76th Street, 8:45pm; tickets and information can be found at and
