“Me” Off-Broadway

Dear Friends,

We have just returned from our wonderful vacation—it was so nice to spend some quality time with our daughter and granddaughters.

As the summer winds down and we’re gearing up for an exciting Fall season, we just wanted to take a moment to recommend an off-Broadway musical for you: Me The People.

The zingy songs aim at the misguided, hypocritical and tragically unfit people who rep us in Washington remind us how important satire is at a time of national upheaval. The rousing finale is nothing short of brilliant. It alone is worth the price of admission.”—The Huffington Post

It is showing at the Triad Theatre on 72nd Street and they are currently selling tickets through October 01, 2017.  I know that we’ve said it before, but this is a show you definitely do not want to miss!

Spreading the Word.

Dear Friends,

This week’s Summer Series recommendation is a show that Ben Brantley of the New York Times (who has seen it four times!) calls the best musical of this century: The Book of Mormon.

It is written and composed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park) and Robert Lopez (Avenue Q).  It is the satirical story of two young Mormon missionaries who are sent to Uganda to spread the word of God.

It has won 9 Tony Awards and they just released additional seats for this fall.  This is great news because you do not want to miss out on this show—it’s a comical way to end the summer (or start the fall or anytime you want to see it!).
