Muny Teens

I attended this year’s most excellent Muny Teens show on Friday evening, then went to Meet Me In St. Louis at the Muny.

And I got to see seven of my students on two different stages.

Phoenix, who is now taller than me.

Greta, who clearly had fun on the huge Muny stage.

NYC18: The Band’s Visit

On Tuesday, with just moments to spare thanks to delayed flights in the eastern USA, I made to my ticket collection point with just five minutes to spare.

And I enjoyed a near-perfect show: The Band’s Visit.

An Egyptian police orchestra ends up in a Jewish settlement.  It’s either the set-up for a horrible ending, a funny joke, or a stylish and evocative and heartfelt musical.

I saw the latter.

And I’m so glad I did!!
