    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!

Big Bird at the NYPL

The New York Public Library has mounted an  exhibit at Lincoln Centre to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the  founding of “Sesame Street”. It is a fascinating history for current Mums and Dads and, I suppose, some current Grandmums and Granddads! Certainly it is  a nostalgia trip for the enlightened parents of the 1970’s.

It is interactive and there are chairs of all sizes to fit all ages. Take your children for an hands-on experience they surely will treasure all their lives.

Here are some of the denizens of Sesame Street–Click on the pictures for detail:
