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

Laura Linney is able to memorize and deliver words in a most astounding and authentic fashion as she so remarkably demonstrates in her one-woman carefully constructed and brilliantly delivered performance in My Name is Lucy Barton. 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…

But sometimes I visit a place and then make the determination to bring the group back, like recently when a group of 25 of us made our way to the National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey…

There are two things I take completely for granted, but are completely necessary for me when I write: time and quiet. The performers on stage at freestyle love supreme are afforded neither of these luxuries, but wow can these word geniuses pump out the language…

Tina Turner did not have an easy life. This icon was handed the steep, craggy, dangerous and entirely uphill version of life at birth. She was also granted three super important gifts that would enable her to so marvelously persevere as she tackled this daunting climb: her spirit, her tenacity, and her voice…

I wrote the following post for my theater group newsletter.  I had so many people comment on the email that I wanted to share it with all of you…

Last night our small but lovely group hunkered down to bear witness to three women quite inexplicably orbiting around an opinionated, nay-saying, self-confessed dim and decaying sun in the form of a 50-year-old flailing divorced man in the play by Tracy Letts: Linda Vista….
