    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

NYD – New Yankee stadium

On Tuesday, Craig invited me to join him to see a game at the new stadium. I was pleased he offered me the  experience for it is unlikely that I will be making my own way there again.  The technology is awesome. Massive 3-d screens are in a state of constant animation. Most of them urging you to buy something and the rest urging the fans to support their team more loudly. It seemed to me that the patrons now  watch the electronic displays rather than the game. In any case, it costs them and arm and a leg. Captive, they are gouged at every turn. $9 for a plain hamburger and $10 for a small beer!
