Tuesday==>Good afternoon to everyone. Your favorite blogger still has a bunch of stuff left over on yesterday’s to-do list, the usual errands and chores day, so we will get this posting going with ...
Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s Broadway musical ...
LET IT BE, about The Beatles’ meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces, featuring 40 of their greatest hits==>A-
Despite the nay-sayers and snarky chat-room postings, I found this to be a totally delightful, enjoyable and entertaining event.
Folks, it is what it is ... a rock-concert performed in a Broadway theatre. The four very talented young musicians do an excellent job of re-creating The Beatles' sound of the 60s.
The visual projections before and during the performance are outstanding, with emphasis on the TV ads for cigarettes (now I know why almost everyone back then smoked).
My comp. seat was excellent, in the 4th row of the center mezzanine.
The audience was really into the performance and, as directed from the stage, we often clapped our hands and/or stood up. Everyone around me seemed to be having a really good time.
The one song that I missed was “Yellow Submarine.” The song that seemed to get the most applause was “Hey Jude,” done in the encore.
Billi Pod says==>If you like The Beatles then see this show ... if not ... then stay far away.
Moving on ...
This evening I am having dinner with my friend Justin Pifer at Joe Allen on Restaurant Row on West 46th Street.
This will be a long overdue facetime/catching-up session. Justin is about to begin his second year of law school at Pace University and is finishing up an internship with William Morris, the talent and literary agency.
Hummmm ... he will be leaving work at William Morris to have dinner with William Norris, whose mother’s maiden name was Ruby Morris.
Moving on to just a bit of sports ...
Tonight at 10:10pm The Yankees will begin the first game of a 2-game series against The Dodgers, out in Los Angeles.
Andy Pettitte (7-8) will be on the mound for The Yankees vs. Zack Greinke for The Dodgers.
The internet is alive with buzz, predictions and speculation that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is preparing to ban Alex Rodriguez for life by invoking a clause in the Collective Bargaining Agreement to==>“preserve the integrity of the game.”
Yes ... Bud ... just do it and let’s get this mess over with and move on.
On this happy note, will post this and then go back to working on my to-do list.
