Moving on to Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s Off Broadway show ...
PEDDLING, about a young peddler in London who wakes up in a field with no memory of how he got there==>A-
It is extremely well-performed by the author, Harry Melling, who played the obnoxious cousin, Dudley Dursley, in the Harry Potter movies.
The set is incredible. It is a floor-to-ceiling see-thru scrim box encircling a patch of grass surrounded by dirt, with an electrical pole in the middle. Seating is on all four sides, very near the action.
The story line, basically delivered in rhymes, is a commentary on the very real issues of class, overloaded social workers and mental illness. It is very emotional but at times kinda hard to follow.
Billi Pod says==>want good acting, with lots of drama? Then see this show.
It is playing at the 59E59 Theatre Complex on East 59th Street, one of my favorite venues, has a running time of 1:00, without intermission, and runs though May 18th.
Billi Pod’s entertainment event for today is another Off Broadway show ...
3:00==>INTERMISSION - “When married couple Lori and Blake attend the opening night of a new play by an anonymous playwright, they find themselves swept up in a series of events that will change their lives forever.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
This comedy 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.
On the sports scene ...
The Yankees bounced back from their shameful extra-innings defeat on Friday night to beat The Rays 9-3 with basically the long-ball and great pitching from the bullpen.
Masahiro Tanaka had a less than stellar outing but picked up the win to go to 4-0 for the season.
This afternoon @ 1:05pm, out at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed and Ego Built, is the final game of the 3-game series.
On the mound for The Yankees will be our struggling former ace CC Sabathia (3-3) vs. Erik Bedard (0-1) for The Rays.
HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE WEEKEND EVERYONE!!
Total mileage for 2014==>428.10 miles (average 3.48 miles per day)
