To Kill a Mockingbird

I passed on tickets when it came to Broadway a few months back starring Jeff Daniels and I have passed on it during another visit or two, but this week a friend pushed so I got myself a cheap seat on the side and went to see Ed Harris star as Aticus Finch. Well, 30 […]

Favorite Ballet -Belles-Lettres & three others

After 4 nights at NYCB and one wonderful evening in London I find I finally really have a few favorites. This Belles-Lettres from JustinPeck was all things rolled into one bit of perfection. Beautiful music, fabulous choreography and wonderful costumes. I could have watched it for hours, it never let up, never a weak spot, […]

Monsoon Season

Another hit at a small, little heard of theatre in the West Village. Though the NY Times wrote a pretty scathing review I enjoyed it, tremendously. As described in time out “All for One Theater, usually devoted to solo works, expands into two-hander territory with this dark romantic thriller-comedy by Lizzie Vieh. Therese Plaehn and Richard Thieriot play a […]

A Woman Of The World

At 59e59, a great little theatre I just discovered. A 45 dollar ticket to a theatre that seats 40 people perhaps. Today I was in theater C, one of three theaters in the building. I saw Kathleen Chalfant in Rebecca Gilman’s A Woman of the World. A one woman show. If I told you it […]

LOVE IN HATE NATION at Works & Process

Last year at Works & Process we previewed Be More Chill , by Joe Iconis. Tonight he was back with a preview of his new production Love in Hate Nation that will be at the Two Rivers Theatre this coming November. It was so fun having Tess with me and we are excited to be […]

Houston Ballet at City Center

wow. Choreography by Mark Harris, The Letter V was a wildly fun high energy girls spinning on point never take a breathe ballet. The energy of Hayden’s Symphony 88 in G major was transferred to every step as the 8 green and black gingham clad dancers contrasted with the 8 spinning tossing neon green and […]

Notes On My Mothers Decline

At the small theatre next to NYTW we saw another amazing production. The theatre was tiny with perhaps 50 seats on either side facing each other with the stage in between. The play, written by Andy Bragan and featuring Ari Fliakos as the son, and Caroline Lagerfelt as his aging mother did not disappoint.

Paris – day 3 Van Gogh and a walk on the old railroad track

Today was an off the beaten path day. Weeks ago I had found a blurb about Atelier des Lumieres. It was the most unusual experience. We saw the Van Gogh experience today and I can barely describe it. Let me start with a warning, There are 11 chairs and 220 people. The best view is […]

Bitter Wheat

Starring John Malkovich at the Garrick Theatre. I am a fan of Malkovich but had heard not good things about the show so rather than buying the best seats in the house I went for discounted seats with a pole in my view. And it turns out the pole didn’t bother me at all. We […]
