Gussy up your Group & GO be AMAZED by Steve Cohen’s Chamber Magic

I first caught wind of Steve Cohen’s Chamber Magic when I stumbled across a group photo of a friend’s family at the show on social media.  The family looked so lovely all gussied up for the event and my friend’s words about the event were super complimentary. I was sold and immediately bought tickets, read on to find out why you should too…

Grab Your FUN Group & GO to Puglia’s Ristorante in the heart of Little Italy

Parent’s nights out can be pleasant, but sometimes less than memorable affairs.  A little dinner, some cocktails, some chats; then home and on with your life.  Thank goodness my son landed in a class where some of the parents have taken it upon themselves to elevate these evenings from a pleasant night out to A BOLD EVENING OUT…

Grab your Nice Group & GO SEE Mean Girls on Broadway

Regina George (aka Taylor Louderman) can sing.  And rock a fat suit.  And command a stage.  And she can be really, really mean, which was her job as head Plastic.  I loved her.  I loved her honesty, her fearless nature and her confidence.  And when her sound system went kaput towards the end of the show I loved her even more…

Considering Your “Corner” Stores

I am not sure why I had it in my head that the hair on my particular head was worthy of the top dollar prices I was paying for it’s maintenance.  But I did get into this mindset, until one day I decided to try something new…

Grab your Group & GO See Carousel

Carousel landed firmly on my radar when I learned that Jessie Mueller and Renee Fleming were headlining the show.  This is the third time the theater group has gathered to see the always enchanting Jessie Mueller.  We saw her first in Beautiful in February of 2015 and again in Waitress in April 2016 where she handily debuted both roles.  Once Ms. Mueller was coupled with the serious singing chops of opera phenom Renee Fleming, I knew the show was a safe bet. While these outsize talents did not disappoint it is the dancing and the lighting that are my two reasons for highly recommending this show….

Grab Your Brother & GO SEE BRUCE!

I had the opportunity to see Springsteen on Broadway with my brother, the person who introduced me to Bruce’s music so many years ago in the quaint Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights. It was a surreal night that I am so grateful I was able to experience…

A Thematic Theater Trifecta

Not sure what I was thinking by scheduling three Broadway shows directly on the heels of a long trip to Japan, but I am certain I must have thought it was a good idea at the time.  In fact it was a very good idea…

Grab Your Group at Sunrise & Run through Kyoto

Kyoto is rightfully a full fledged tourist attraction. Throngs and throngs of people from all over the world flock to this gracious and beautiful city to visit it’s many temples and shrines. Our approach to Kyoto was more experiential…

A Traveler’s Take on 15 Things to Grab Your Group & Do in Tokyo

Tackling your Tokyo itinerary can be a daunting task. I made lists and lists and more lists. All that list making and we still only did a cursory tour of this remarkable city. So without overwhelming you with the why’s I give you our master list. May it be a useful springboard as you plan your time in Tokyo…

Let’s Talk TOKYO!

I am guessing you have a perception of Tokyo already in your head: fast moving, crowded, busy, bathed in neon, and a tad overwhelming. All of this is true to a degree, but the beauty of Tokyo is that all of this is coupled with an impressive order that gives the city a peaceful and gracious air. I am not going to regale you with a list of where to go and what to do (at least not in this post). The internet is chock-a-block full of this information, but I will provide a primer of sorts…

Grab Your Group & TOUR the Apollo Theater in Harlem

Today I got to meet (and sing with) Mr. Apollo aka Billy Mitchell, the Tour Director/In House Historian/Apollo Ambassador, at the one and only Apollo Theater in Harlem. To say that Mr. Mitchell was a treasure trove of information regarding all things Apollo would be a woeful misrepresentation of the term. Billy Mitchell is a walking, talking embodiment of the Apollo Theater…
