I Love the Night Life (6)

And the day time, too!

Today is a perfect June day in New York and even doing errands was fun. Perfect for walking, perfect for taking photos and perfect for sitting at the farmer's market (across the street from Lincoln Center) and reading.

"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.

Yes, DDay anniversary. So much to be thankful for.

And you have become quite the theater goer. Hope you have a wonderful time tonight. I'll be here with my son and maybe work some on my novel. Have a great night! :)

Well hello dear little theatre butterfly!!!

That play trilogy sure sounds interesting! As does your new book. I like light reading in the summertime, too.

Hope you are resting up today from your VERY full week!

You've inspired me to watch the Tony awards tonight! Keep sharing any theater trips you have.
