WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
If you've yet to visit the Starbox in Bryant Park, a huge box with a "mystery star" inside, tonight is your final chance to come face-to-face with this celebrity. There have been a few reports about who the star is (no, it's most likely not James Franco), but we won't spoil the surprise for you here. Mary Birnbaum, artistic director of art.party.theater.company, told the Times, "As a culture, we're so obsessed with fame, especially our generation," and so she's promised to bring you nothing less than the biggest star in the world. Honestly, we haven't been this excited for a Bryant Park visit since David Blaine jumped off a 10-story pillar.
