"The Norman Conquests" last night was a delight, very funny and poignant. I saw one part of this trilogy and I am eagerly hoping the other two parts appear on the discount site. This is an Old Vic production which played in London, and now happily is playing here. The three plays tell the story of three couples on one country weekend from different perspectives.
I have theater tickets for tonight, too. This is my lucky week on the discount site and I am seeing "The Marvelous Wonderettes," which sounds fluffy, sweet and lots of fun. It's the story of a girls singing group at a 1958 prom, complete with lots of '50s music. It's rare that I go out so much, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. Tomorrow night is definitely a stay at home night.
A by-product of all my traipsing about the city is lots of reading on the bus and subway. I've just begun "firefly lane," by Kristin Hannah and am enjoying it very much. It's engaging and by the second chapter I was eager to follow the characters. I think it's a perfect summer read.
On a more serious note, a moment of remembrance on this 65th anniversary of DDay to those brave soldiers who gave so much for freedom.
