    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.

Met Breuer and Met Roof

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Met Museum’s new branch, The Met Breuer, housed in the old Whitney building. And from there, I went over to the Met itself  to see the latest art installation on the roof. I was struck by the distinctly different mindset of the curators in the two entities. The Met is its old self but, in the Breuer, it has created a, perhaps, startling counterpoint to itself.

Here is the roof installation by Cornelia Parker:
