Burn/This is NOT Too Darn Hot

The guiding principle for this blog is to share ONLY the experiences that we at Grab Your Group and GO love: experiences that energize and enthuse, so that you can be energized and enthused too. This blog is called Grab Your Group and GO – NOT – Grab Your Group and DO NOT GO – for a reason…

The Triumph of The Lehman Trilogy

While in the audience at The Lehman Trilogy I learned, among a zillion other things, that I am a middle man for providing experiences. I have no hand in the creation of the experiences. I am but a fellow experience seeker and I take groups with me to share in the experience. I LOVE IT! So I will continue to embrace this role of cultural middle man for a good long time. And an experience is exactly what was proffered when almost 70 of us met at the Park Avenue Armory to view the staggeringly stark, but supremely powerful The Lehman Trilogy.

Grab Your Group and Go Spend Time with Atticus, Scout, and Boo on Stage NOW

I have trouble imagining a more daunting endeavor than taking the beloved, vaunted, prescient words of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and putting them into the form of a play. Then to have to cast these iconic and besotted characters presents a whole other hairball of a challenge.

Grab Your Group and Immerse Yourselves in The Ferryman ASAP

There were 70 of us gathered Thursday night (just rows from mother/daughter duo Chelsea and Hillary) for three hours to remember why it is we go to the theater. If you happen to be on the hunt for some reasons why one should go to see live theater, you can find about 3,000 of them on stage now at The Ferryman….

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.
