Sunday 15.

Up and out early today imagining that I might find a market or festivity or such. My secondary plan, somewhat compromised by the diffident spitty weather, was Battery Park and maybe Staten on the Ferry. As it turned out, none of that was to be the case.

I walked several miles of downtown without quite finding the bottom of the island. I'll persist, has been a bit spitty wet and overcast today anyway- probably not a day for the staten ferry stuff. Instead i was in and out of the Village- found Canal and up to Bowery so vaguely TriBeCa I guess? Canal was a journey in itself. Endless occurrences of what seemed the same shop to me, fake watches, name-buckle belts and pashmina scarves.

Somehow I found myself on the approach to the Holland Tunnel without a sausage.


Unless anyone has any surprises or I'm confused, I have a no shows day tomorrow. I've had to reschedule Puttnam after something went wrong with my ticket, that's through to Tony's eve.

Otherwise, the last few have been Streetcar which I liked, an awful Glass Menagerie in which Jessica Lange sulked about not getting a Tony nom for three hours, Forbidden Broadway- fun and a bit sad.
it was their second last show before they leave after 22 years.

AvenueQ last night, with our glamorous cameo star, Alison of the Upper East, was possibly more fun than last time. The cast are well settled in and a I picked up a heap that I just missed last time! I had totally forgotten about the Bad Idea Bears. Just seeing them warrants some calculatedly degenerate behaviour. The new John Tartaglia is extremely fuckable if somewhat limited vocally. All the other originals are still in place and seem still to be having fun with it. Seeing AvenueQ with a relatively mainstream audience was interesting, it seemed everyone was having a good time.

Today was to have been a show free day but I fairly but stumbled on one of the few last few tickets for Kristin Chenoweth & Michael Cerveris doing one of the 'Encore' series concert. They drag out an old musicals and perform them in concert. More often than not they are obscure of rarely heard scores. We got something called the Apple Tree which was, very frankly, an awful musical. Three years before the Female Eunuch was published and one can only be thankful for Germaine. We had fun with how cringe inducing the dated sexist stuff was but dated, sexist humour can only be coated with irony for so long. The point, of course, is to hear unheard works, not to indulge in classics.


Kristin in the Apple Tree

It was absolutely gorgeous to see Kristin who is a performer beyond compare. She transcended the banal material to let her radioactive charm and impeccable comic timing make the most of what we had to work with. Kristin counts as a bonus diva- it was totally unexpected that I should hear her on this trip.
