Plays

On the evening of August 4th, 2021 at 8pm Stacie (my GYGG partner in chief) and I had the good fortune to GO back to BROADWAY. Doors that had been shuttered for some 500 days were flung wide open at the August Wilson Theater to welcome us and our fellow giddy audience members back to the theater in the form of a play called Pass Over….Continue Reading

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.
