  • theatre and Concerrts

    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!

Tunnellers reach a milestone

At an underground ceremony last week, which I would have dearly liked to have attended, the tunnel drilling machine broke through the rock into the station space at 63rd street and completed its mission. Both east and west tubes have now been drilled and the machine is going to the last resting place of TDM’s.

Little time is being wasted by the groundhogs–The heavy equipment is already being brought back to the access hole at 92nd street and lifted out to waiting flatbed trucks. And, good news for us, the 4-storey debris elevator in front of the Waterford is being dismantled!

After two years, tenants of the Waterford will not be sorry to see it go
