Broadway Baby - Lights

Times Square has to be seen to be believed. Video advertisements are way cool. Aeropostale spent a ton of bucks to catch my eye.
I saw the Lion King back in 2007 or so. Awesome production. Julie Taymor's costumes and creations are genius.

Come Fly Away is Twyla Tharp amazing. The blend of choreography and Frank Sinatra tunes is two hours of entertainment and wow! factor. The dancers work hard for the money and their skill is par excellence. Huge thumbs up on this show.

Yep, Me and Linda shlepping in NY. We saw a matinee of Promises, Promises and it was sheer joy. Kristin Chenoweth is a tiny thing with a HUGE voice and she delivered. Lovely performance. Sean Hayes, new to Broadway, is charming, funny, and talented with a pleasant singing voice. Together, the song "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" proved charming. Other Burt Bacharach/Hal David winners are "Say a Little Prayer" and " A House is Not a Home". The whole production was A-1 fantastic.

Friday night - caught A Little Night Music recasted. Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch totally kick butt. Bernadette is a national treasure. I can't exclaim enough over her acting, singing, and stage presence. Elaine milked her role and so she should - she's been around a zillion years and has the ooomph. Kudos to Steven Sondheim for wordplay, thought, and calculating lyrics. Excellent revival and a total holy cow! experience.
Dinner at Sangria's on 48th St (between 8th and 9th avenue) was a treat.
Gotta love NY theater and dinner.
