Be Pussy Riot!
The appearance precedes a fundraising dinner, where a $300 donation nets you a course of rosemary-grilled sturgeon; for $600, you can sit at Nadya and Masha's table. When the event's $35 tickets rapidly sold out, local Pussy Riot fans made their displeasure known on social media; while I understand fans' disappointment, the idea that die-hard supporters of Russian feminist activists and prisoner's advocates would kvetch about a sold-out event is a little disheartening. As Nadya and Masha advised in their first English-language speech, “Anyone can be Pussy Riot!” So what are you waiting for?
