Wednesday==>Another Doubleheader

Good morning to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers out there in the morass known as cyberspace.

Let’s get today’s posting started with Billi Pod’s thoughts/observations on last night’s staged reading of ... 

HOWLING HILDA, a musical about the Brooklyn Dodgers’ greatest fan==>well-performed, interesting and entertaining.

It is a one-woman show and the performer, Mary Testa, did an excellent job as the Dodger-obsessed fan, who, unfortunately, was in total denial about the possibility of the Dodger’s leaving Brooklyn for LA.

The press blurb commented that it isn’t necessary to be a baseball fan to enjoy the show, but, honestly, I think it will be a hard-sell to the non-baseball crowd with no knowledge of what was happening back in 1957 and who the players were.

I saw this with my theater buddies Dian Crystal aka My Lady and Vera Olichney.

Moving on ...

Today will be another entertainment doubleheader for Billi Pod ... beginning with ... 

2:00==>STRIKE UP THE BAND - “A revival of the 1927 musical that  satirizes America's taste for war. America declares war on Switzerland over a trivial trade issue involving cheese.” (Off Broadway - $9.00 TDF ticket)

This work was the result of collaboration between George S. Kaufman and George & Ira Gershwin. It is playing in a theatre on my block.

Then for the evening is ...

7:30==>NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA @ Avery Fisher Hall - The program is: Bach’s Mass in B Minor
(season subscription series)

The orchestra will be joined by the New York Choral Artists Chorus.

Moving on some more ...

Have a noon meeting with the leasing agent. Hopefully it will result in some movement on their part. Keep your fingers crossed.

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>2.42 miles (or, 5,307 steps)

Total mileage since 7/1/12==>1,231.24 miles
