    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

Times Square at Super Bowl time.

Sunday Afternoon (Super Bowl day), I took my camera down to Times square to photograph all the wonderful sports displays and games that had been erected for the Super Bowl match which, I had been told, were spectacular. I arrived when it was all in the last stages of being dismantled! Even the Grand Central and Bryant Park displays were gone. Apparently the licenses were conditioned upon the spaces being returned to normal that very afternoon–even before the game began. I took the following few pictures of the remaining activity. Click on them for detail):
