Monday==>It is going to be another hot and humid day here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World. At 10:30am we have pale blue skies, wispy clouds, high humidity, light breeze and temperature of 79º.
The forecast for this evening is a 30% chance of rain at 7:00pm, the starting time for the Yankees game (details below).
As you loyal and faithful readers and followers know, Monday is Billi Pod’s usual errands and chores day, so ... let’s get today’s blog started with his report card on yesterday’s entertainment event ....
The Broadway drama THE NANCE, about Chauncey Miles whose outrageous antics on stage are in sharp contrast to the unfunny dangers of his clandestine off-stage exploits in 1930s NYC==>A
It has a very troubling story line about the dangers of being an “out” homosexual in the 1930s in NYC. The oppression instigated by the administration was, IMHO, eerily similar to the mantra of the Rudy Giuliani administration in the 90s. Jus sayin ...
There is incredible acting from an awesome cast, headed, of course, by Nathan Lane, who gives a Tony-worthy performance.
The final scene is perplexing. Still not sure what it meant. All of the reviews I read share this view.
My discounted TDF ticket was in the second row of the mezzanine, far house left. The sight line was OK but, man, are the seats in the ancient Lyceum Theatre uncomfortable
Billi Pod says==>if you want a well-acted, thought-provoking drama, then this is the show for you.
When the show was over I came back to PHC and basically chilled for the remainder of the day/evening. Once the sun went down I had a very nice 90-minute walk and wander session in and around my Hell’s Kitchen ‘hood.
Now, about tonight ...
7:05pm==>YANKEES/KANSAS CITY @ Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built.
This game is part of my partial season-ticket package and the only game scheduled for the month of July.
On the mound for The Bronx Bombers will be Phil Hughes (4-7) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (7-6) for The Royals.
As I mentioned above, the weather forecast is for a 30% chance of rain at game-time. Barf!!
Yesterday afternoon our usual reliable closer, Mariano Rivera, blew a save, giving up a 2-run homer in the top of the 9th as we lost 2-1 to the Orioles, breaking our 6-game winning streak. Oh well ...
Moving on ...
I have complied the entertainment stats for the month of June, and, of course, they are pretty awesome. Plan to post them tomorrow ... so stay tuned.
