My 13-year-old, Martha, has “just a bit” of an obsession with Darren Criss from Glee. He was performing for a few weeks this January in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway. She talked constantly about this for the last couple of months and was hoping I could somehow obtain a playbill from the show for her. But one night I got to wondering how many airmiles I had…and next thing I knew we were being crazy and impulsive and flying to NYC for the show. It was awesome – totally worth the trip!
We also got discount tickets to “Mary Poppins” and “Spiderman” – very different shows but loved them both. We went to the South Seaport TKTS for the Mary tickets – the blogs were correct – no line-up there! It was a bit of a ways to go, but we enjoyed exploring the surrounding neighbourhoods. We waited in the Broadway TKTS line for the “Spiderman” tickets and were wishing we had worn fur-lined boots instead of sneakers!
Martha is a museum-lover so we squeezed in a trip to the Guggenheim this time. There was an “interesting” work of art by Maurizio Cattelan hanging in the centre of the museum. We overheard a dad ask his young daughter how it made her feel? We didn’t hear what she answered, but decided “disturbed” best described how we felt! Awesome architecture as well as great paintings by many famous artists like Cezanne, Gauguin, and Kandinsky.
I was the designated photographer, but Martha did snap a couple of me. Here I am with the nice police horses.
