Grab a Tour Guide and GO to The Museum at Eldridge Street

Chinatown is my family’s go-to spot when we are at a loss as to what to do on any given Sunday. We hop on the Q – hop off at Canal – and explore and eat and explore some more.  Which is why I can say with confidence that I have walked by the Eldridge Street Synagogue a bazillion times. But did my eyes cast a gaze or did I ever once consider the storied history of this landmark building that has been standing guard on Eldridge street for over 131 years!???

Get Your Inner Spy Self On at SPYSCAPE!

I am the target market for experience billboards. Years ago we were driving to the Grand Canyon and the husband privately prayed my eyes would not spot the giant billboard promoting Bearizona! His prayers were not answered. Of course we went to the drive-through zoo on our way to the Grand Canyon (Guess what? He loved it too and has since given up on trying to avert my billboard inspired explorations). If I see something that looks intriguing, fun or experiential we go. Such was the case when I saw the stark black and white signs all over LaGuardia airport announcing SpyScape…

The Perils of being a PA President on Stage at The Prom :)

PA/PTA President’s seem to be a curious and unappealing breed, at least in the mindset of the entertainment world. In movies, tv shows, and books, PA Presidents are pushy, uptight, humorless, sugar averse, have unusually narrow worldviews, and are generally off-putting individuals. Such is the case on stage in the newly launched and (opposite of a PA President) wonderfully appealing Broadway show: The Prom.

Grab Your Fierce Friends and GO Experience Gloria: A Life

This is a play that needs to be experienced. It is a play that teaches, inspires, and satisfies. It would be impossible to sit in that cozy circle in the round theater perched on your deliberately inviting, colorful and dare I say, highly feminine, seat cushion with matching back pillow (custom ordered for this show) and not experience a flurry of emotions and life introspection…

Grab Your Group and GO Be Bedazzled by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway

Throughout the experience that is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child my brain kept drifting to the thought that Harry Potter and his son Albus would be well advised to grab Draco Malfoy and his son Scorpius and go see Dear Evan Hansen together. A viewing of this show might have offered some pre-emptive strategies for these fathers and sons to better navigate their relationships and consider one another’s father and son perspective.

Dear Dear Evan Hansen,

Two years.  730 calendar days. That is not a lot of time.  How remarkable that just a scant two years go by and boom, I find our 14-year-old twins to be absolutely on target to appreciate and love the exposed nerve that is Dear Evan Hansen…

KING KONG on BROADWAY

Don’t tell the husband, but I have a massive crush on a giant gorilla. My crush is 20 feet tall and weighs 2,000 pounds. He has soft brown eyes that can make you melt and a roar that can set you back, but leave you wanting more…
