BREAKING NEWS==>Today my theater-buddy Vera Olichney is treating me to an early birthday luncheon and we will be joined by Dian Crystal aka My Lady. (in the picture, from left to right, it is Dian, moi, Vera).
At noon we will meet up at the corner of 42nd Street and 5th Avenue and then walk uptown on the Eastside to 79th Street (get the connection?) where we will find someplace to have lunch. Right now the weather is really nice, bright and sunny - 63º @ 10:00am.
Afterwards I feel pretty sure that we will walk back to Midtown. Really looking forward to this adventure.
So ... let’s get the rest of this posting started with Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s entertainment event, the Off Broadway musical ...
FOUR MESSAGES - “What would you do if you thought you'd received messages from God? And then they all came true?”==>B
Excellent musical performances but, unfortunately, the story line gets old and predictable. It clocks in at 2:15, with an intermission, and I believe it would work better at 90-minutes, without intermission.
When the show was over I walked the few steps back to PHC and watched the rest of the YANKEES/DIAMONDBACKS game, which the Yankees lost in extra innings 6-2.
Tonight @ 7:05pm the Bronx Bombers start a 3-game series with the Blue Jays in Toronto. Andy Pettitte (2-0) will be on the mound vs. Brandon Morrow (0-1) for the Jays.
Bad news from The Yankee Universe==>Derek Jeter suffered a small crack in his surgically repaired left ankle and will be out until mid-July, at the earliest. BUMMER!!
Oh, well ... moving on some more ...
Tonight’s entertainment event is ...
8:00==>THE LAST WILL - “William Shakespeare, on his death bed, is writing his will while fending off an effort to lure him back to the London stage.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
The esteemed Austin Pendleton directs and stars in this show playing at the Abingdon Theatre Complex on West 36th Street.
OK, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, it is time to post this and then get ready for my luncheon date(s).
