Tuesday==>Still trying to process the remarkable story about The International Baccalaureate School at Bartow High School, Bartow, FL, being ranked No. 2 on Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s ranking of America’s best high schools.
Let’s get this posting started with your favorite blogger's thoughts and observations on last night’s reading at The York Theatre. Remember, Billi Pod usually doesn’t assign letter-grades to readings unless the work in barf-inducingly bad.
ANALOG & VINYL, will the struggling owner of a record store sell his soul to the Devil in order to stay in business?==>interesting, funny and thought-provoking.
I was impressed with the level of performance from the cast in this musical. There was great interaction between the lead characters played by Anthony Rapp, as the store owner, and Sarah Stiles, as Rodeo Girl, the employee.
David Turner as The Man aka Satan almost steals the show.
IMHO this musical has great potential and I hope it gets produced in The Tri-State area.
I saw the reading as a guest of Dian Crystal aka My Lady, who was there with her FaceBook friend Thomas. They also liked it.
Tonight’s entertainment event is an Off Broadway show at Ars Nova Theatre on West 54th Street ...
8:00==>CORE VALUES - “With the world around him changing at a dizzying pace, the owner of a small travel agency faces the realities of a rapidly evolving marketplace.” (Off Broadway - $9.00 TDF ticket)
Hummmmm ... sounds a lot like last night’s reading, doesn’t it?
Moving on to a bit of sports, all for you Marty ...
Tonight @ 8:40pm the Yankees will play the Colorado Rockies, the first game of a 3-game series in Denver.
On the mound for The Bronx Bombers will be Hiroki Kuroda (4-1) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (2-3) for The Rockies.
Because we will be playing a NL team at their home we will lose the DH and that usually means trouble for AL teams.
OK ... in closing ... in response to some snarky emails and texts ... yes ... I did sorta promise that I would post the entertainment stats for April during the weekend ... and ... I didn’t. So ... just get over it ... they will be forthcoming ...
