Back To Work Monday/Intermission/The Wankies

Monday==>It is a bright, sunny and breezy Back To Work Monday here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World==>57º at 10:00am. The projected high is only 64º.

Your favorite blogger has a lot of errands and chores on his to-do list ... so let’s get started with ...

Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s Off Broadway show ... 

INTERMISSION, about a married couple who, after attending the opening night of a new play by an anonymous playwright, find themselves swept up in a series of events that will change their lives forever==>C

There is decent acting from the 4-person cast but the story line is totally implausible and is burdened with way too many improbable, contrived plot twists.

Yes, there are laughs early on but the plot gets darker and darker until it is almost overwhelmed with “sadness,” making the event only mildly entertaining.

Billi Pod says==>you are warned.

It is playing at the Theatre Row Complex on my West 42nd Street block, has a running time of 1:30, without intermission, and runs through May 24th.

As I am preparing this posting my entertainment plans for this evening are in flux. Because it is Monday my theater options are rather limited. Am seriously considering braving the masses to see the recently opened THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.

Moving on ...

I am happy to report to you loyal and faithful readers and followers that the Off Broadway show PEDDLER just received a rave review in today’s New York Times ... “here he [Harry Melling] is, giving a powerful and delicately calibrated solo performance in his poetic first play.”

As you will recall, your favorite blogger gave it an A-.

To my Tri-State theater friends==>you better grab a ticket to this show ASAP because it only runs through May 18th.

Moving on to the sports scene ... for you Marty ...

Yesterday The Wankies and our former ace CC Sabathia basically sucked, losing 5-1 to The Rays in a game we were never in, going 0-10 with runners in scoring position.

CC lasted only 3 2/3 innings, allowing 5 runs and 10 hits. He was loudly (and deservedly) booed when he was taken out of the game.

Tonight, at 10:00pm out in LA, is the first of a 3-game series against The Angels.

On the mound for The Wankies will be David Phelps (0-0) vs. Jered Weaver (2-2) for The Angels.

On this happy note will close this posting out and begin working on my errands and chores list.

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>4.50 miles (or, 9,839 steps)

Total mileage for the week==>28.18 miles (average 4.03 miles per day)

Total mileage for 2014==>432.60 miles (average 3.49 miles per day)
