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. Well, thank goodness there are brave people in this world, because seeing To Kill a Mockingbird on stage was a dream come true – a dream I didn’t even know I had…

Grab a Tour Guide and GO to The Museum at Eldridge Street

Chinatown is my family’s go-to spot when we are at a loss as to what to do on any given Sunday. We hop on the Q – hop off at Canal – and explore and eat and explore some more.  Which is why I can say with confidence that I have walked by the Eldridge Street Synagogue a bazillion times.

Get Your Inner Spy Self On at SPYSCAPE!

I am the target market for experience billboards. Years ago we were driving to the Grand Canyon and the husband privately prayed my eyes would not spot the giant billboard promoting Bearizona!

He loved it too and has since given up on trying to avert my billboard inspired explorations). If I see something that looks intriguing, fun or experiential we go. Such was the case when I saw the stark black and white signs all over LaGuardia airport announcing SpyScape…

Grab Your Group and TOUR The High Line

Like most New Yorkers I have walked The Highline numerous times.  While I have “done” The Highline, what I “did” was in a completely uninformed and clueless manner, scurrying by various historic landmarks and utterly missing the point of this resurrected gift to NYC. Going on a tour was a completely different experience…

Grab Your Group and GO vs. Grab Your Group and WAIT

The group on stage at the Iceman Cometh led me to contemplate what it means when I say “Grab Your Group and GO”. The characters in this Eugene O’Neill play represent the antithesis of grabbing your group and going. This is a group that gathers and stays and waits…
