    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!

R & R at Atlantic City

 

Since I am still hobbling a little bit, Christine and I took our folding chairs to Atlantic City and sat on the beach and enjoyed two inactive days in the sun. I leisurely sketched while Christine read her book.  On the second day, Christine’s niece, Stefanie, and her husband, David, came to join us from a nearby town where they were vacationing. We all shared a long-drawn-out dinner of mussels, clams and calamari, with appropriate wines. Most enjoyable!
