    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.

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:
