You have the beginnings of a strong profile but here are two things I recommend that you work on / think about before applying:
1) Naturally, you can't help getting laid off. Especially in this economy, admissions officers will be open-minded about that. But, they will look closely to see that what you've done on your down time. Hopefully your theatre work and new business give you enough to talk about during this time. They will ideally not look like hobbies, but two things you are really devoted to.
2) Your GMAT is low for NYU and Kellogg. That score would put you in the bottom 20-30% of people admitted to those programs. Since your GMAT score is still one of the things in your profile that you can improve, there's no reason not to try. Especially since you're out of work (and presumably have some time on your hands), I would *really* advise that you try to get that score up to 700+.
