Thursday==>Let’s get today’s posting started with your favorite blogger’s report card on yesterday’s entertainment event ...
The Fringe Festival show ...
MOSES, THE AUTHOR, about Moses, who has family problems (gay son, rocky marriage), God problems (existential), and career problems (writer’s block, a hellish deadline). To make a better Bible he must become a better man. A love story, with scrolls==>Thumbs Up!!
I found this well-written and extremely well-performed comedy/drama to be totally enjoyable as it portrayed the difficult relationship between God and his co-author Moses and between Moses and his family.
The stellar cast is headed by Mitch Tebo as Moses and Ramzi Khalaf as Thusie, the trusty apprentice.
This show is playing at The Players Theatre in The West Village, has a running time of 1:40, without intermission, and the remaining performance dates are Thursday, August 21 @ 9:00pm and Saturday, August 23 @ 9:15pm.
Billi Pod headed out to the show early so he could have another walk and wander session in The West Village. When the show was over the weather was really nice, so he, once again, walked back to the apartment.
This mileage plus the in-apartment walking during the evening’s baseball game(s) brought the total for the day to 6.23 miles and brought the daily average to 4.00 miles, finally. It has taken a long time to overcome the effects of such nasty weather at the beginning of the year.
Now all I have to do is keep it up.
Moving on ... actually ... moving down ...
Last night out at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built, The Wankies (63-61) suffered another loss to the lowly Astros (54-73), this one 5-2 thanks to a no-show from the offense and a 7th inning collapse by the over-extended bullpen.
This afternoon at 1:05pm is the final game of the 3-game series. On the mound for The Wankies will be Brandon McCarthy (4-2) vs. Dallas Keuchel (10-8) for Houston.
I alternated between watching The Wankie game and watching the Little League World Series game between Philadelphia and Las Vegas.
In the LLWS game the much-hyped Philadelphia star pitcher Mo’ne Davis struck out six batters but allowed three runs and six hits in a 8-1 loss. Yep, baseball can be a totally unforgiving sport.
Now ... what about today I know you are all asking your inner selves?
Well ... inner selves ... your favorite blogger here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, has an Off Broadway show scheduled for the evening ...
8:00==>BURYING THE HATCHET - “The relationship between screenplay writer, Edward Larson, and his trophy wife, Eleanor, is on the rocks after the accidental death of Sir Henry Hatchet III (Eleanor's prized show cat). To make matters worse, Edward's agent, Charlie Wiseman, made a deadly deal with a major movie studio owed by the mafia, turning one weekend at the Larson's summer home into a series of madcap mishaps and misunderstandings, brimming with unexpected house guests, a staged burglary, and a prescription mix up, making for one wild comedic farce that is bound to leave you in stitches!” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
This well reviewed comedy is playing at The Snapple Theatre on West 50th Street, has a running time of 1:30, with intermission, and runs on Wednesdays and Thursdays through August 28th, at present.
OK, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, it is time to post this and then get ready to watch The Wankies suffer some more ... so ...
Total mileage for 2014==>928.87 miles (average 4.00 miles per day)
