I believe that experiences are far more important to collect than things. Add your friends and family to these experiences? Bliss!

We LOVED this movie! If I had to summarize, it is a comprehensive 80’s era (the year 1985 to be exact) love letter with a School of Rock/Once/Stand by Me/Bend it Like Beckham/Almost Famous vibe (these happen to be some of my and probably your most favorite movies). Most of the car ride back to Montauk we talked through how we would go about turning it into a musical…

The exercise of taking time out of our day to acknowledge and RECORD what we miss during these strange times is not an exercise in self-pity, but an exercise of life appreciation. It is a note to your future self to try to remember the things you missed during this bizarre and scary time in our lives…

The role of Tina Turner, in the musical of the same name, has to be all kinds of grueling – a massive commitment at each and every performance. The energy burn is off the charts and the vocal range and explosiveness of the voice that needs to be employed to pull this performance off is otherworldly.

If you love Laura Linney, you must GO see her in this play. This post, however, is not about that performance. Rather it has to do with a story around the show. This post is about – eeh gads – karma…

Jagged Little Pill tackles ugly beautifully. I saw this show for the second time on Sunday with a group of 50, many in the 14/15 year old range. When there are kids and their parents in the mix, I am hyper aware of the content that is that is being covered. And Jagged Little Pill covers a lot of dark, ugly and challenging content…

Dear Santa,  All I want for Christmas this year is for the producers of A Christmas Carol on Broadway to promise me they will bring back this same exact production with the same exact cast with the same exact gratifying snowy and sparkly panache each and every holiday season until forever…

I had a yoga teacher who liked to kick off her classes with various anecdotes. One that stuck with me is her advice on how to make a new friend. Her words of wisdom? Share a secret. Well, I guess I have 1000 new friends…
