    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.

“Gem” — Ports of call

We rarely take the optional tours offered by the cruise lines, prefering instead to to wander about the port of call for the few hours available. We take land tours if we wish to see a place in depth.
