  • Theatre and Music

    August 26 Saw the Sudacas Theater production of "Implications of Cohabitation" by Vanessa Verduga. It is a well constructed piece about an old-fashioned man who has broken all the rules but still expects to be respected as a parent and taken in by his dysfunctional offspring - Very funny play.

    September 6 Took in a preview of a "Taste of Honey" by Shelagh Delaney. She was one of the shakers of my time and I anticipated a nostalgic reawakening of my younger days, but was sorely disappointed. The production needs a lot of work if it aspires to match the original.

    September 14 went to the Academy of Dramatic Arts to see their production of 'Welcome to Thebes'. The piece is a glorious mix of Sophocles plays and ancient Greek myth designed to give a host of students a chance to show their mettle. This they did with amazing talent! The slightly jarring note was the guards being armed with revolvers and AK rifles.

Ben’s Page

Welcome

The content of this bBenbloglog is directed mainly, but not entirely, towards friends and travelling companions who may now still be numbered among the hundreds in spite of the attrition of the years . Their varied interests cover the world’s spectrum. The aim is a personal one,  it is to keep the conversation and exchange of ideas going for as long as I am able. The blog, then, will give viewers a fairly continuous idea of where I am and what I am up to so that they can respond when an interest is sparked. I hope that my camera will help prompt your comments and e-mails

The “Recent Posts” widget (sidebar) on the right will give you an idea of the travels I have  just made and of  my New York impressions. Below this is an index of my ‘Memoirs’ chapters which can now be read in the order in which they were written.

On the left-hand side you will see a notice of my upcoming trips followed by a notice  of my theatre- and concert-going and what my thoughts of the performances were. Below this, there is  a widget which allows those interested to register and receive notices of new posts automatically.

Notes: Click on the pictures, most will enlarge to full screen and give much greater detail
