    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

NYD – Hudson’s colors

On Sunday we drove over the George Washington bridge on to the Palisades Parkway and thence  to Bear Mountain to view the fall colors. The coloring was a bit spotty but the river looked spectacular none-the-less. We splashed out and took the buffet brunch at the Bear Mountain Overlook Restaurant. $27 each, but well worth it, both  for the food and the view.
