Hudson Yards-New York’s Next Great Neighborhood

Today a friend and I took the 4 Train to Grand Central.  There we got the 7 to the last stop which was 34th Street-Hudson Yards Station.  We wanted to visit Manhattan’s newest all inclusive neighborhood Hudson Yards where the residences start at 4.5 million.  So Yikes!!!  They also have an all inclusive Mall which…

Birdland Jazz Club

The other evening I was invited by a friend to go to the Birdland Jazz Club which is located at 315 W. 44th Street. So it’s ever since most of Chicago’s top musicians moved to New York in the mid-to-late 1920s that New York City has been the Jazz Mecca. Nearly every major jazz style…

Cleopatra-An Interactive Theater Experience

So I was invited by producer Nathaniel Hill to see his production of Cleopatra which was shown at the Chelsea Music Hall which is located at 407 West 15th Street and which shares the same entrance as Moscot. So having never been to the Chelsea Music Hall, I was looking forward to the fun!  And…

Blank! The Musical

This past Saturday I went to see Blank!  The Musical.   I had no idea what to expect except that I knew that my phone needed to be on at the beginning of the performance (90 minutes-no intermission) and that using the show’s app was part of the process. So I got to the Broadway…

Honoring Author-Alexander McCall Smith

  Many years ago I read a book called The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. The novel was set in Botswana and had a really big impact on me because I found the characters to be so genuine and so authentic that I felt very connected to them and absolutely adored…

Beauty and The Beast in Live Time

That’s right. The other evening I attend an event called Bonnet Bash 2017: Beauties and Beasts. So what’s a gal to do for a costume. Hmmm… I decided to be The Beauty of Peace. I’m so whatever, whatever, whatever about what happened in Syria this past week and in the general political state of the…

How the Other Half Loves-A Play

The other evening at The Amateur Comedy Club located at 150 E. 36th Street I saw a hilarious production of How the Other Half Lives which was written by Alan Ayckbourn and which originally premiered in London.  The play is an extremely clever, funny and well-crafted play which juggled time and space as it presented the…
