I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Babes in Arms

March 8 - 20
The Lion Theatre
410 W. 42nd St.
New York, New York

Parents of a group of teenagers leave to hit the vaudeville circuit. The local sheriff (Joe Gately) threatens to send the kids to a work farm unless they do something productive. So they end up by doing what they do best - putting on a show. The lead teens – Val and Billie (Justin Schuman and Lauren Chapman), are joined by Val’s younger brother (Courter Simmons), the Sheriff’s daughter (Lilly Tobin), her beau (Casey Shane), one-time Hollywood child star (Tessa Faye), and two talented black brothers (Neville Braithwaite and Sebastian Maynard-Palmer). A wealthy young Southerner (Perry Sook) offers to help, but only under the condition that the two black kids are removed from the show. All the kids protest including Calhoun’s best friend (Keaton Tetlow).  And the show does go on with the help of a French aviator (Vincent Ortega) and an impressive array of other talented kids (Julia FranklinMichael Lorz, Evan Mayer, Ryan Rhue, Connor Russell,Hannah Slabaugh, and Hannah Spacone).  Of course their show is a success – it contains nothing but Rodgers & Hart classics including: "My Funny Valentine," "Where or When," "The Lady is a Tramp," "Johnny One Note," "Imagine," "I Wish I Were in Love Again," and "Babes in Arms." The original production was choreographed by George Balanchine and marked the stage debuts of Alfred Drake and Dan Dailey.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College
and the School of American Ballet present
The Beauty of Ballet
Sunday, March 6, 2016 at 2pm
Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2015-16 season with The Beauty of Ballet, a free lecture demonstration presented by the School of American Ballet (SAB), on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at 2pm. This event is free, with no tickets or reservations required.

The 45-minute, family-friendly presentation will illustrate how students develop into accomplished classical ballet dancers, alternating examples of advanced classroom training exercises with the performance of excerpts from notable ballets. School of American Ballet faculty member Katrina Killian (a former New York City Ballet soloist) and advanced students from SAB will be featured in the enchanting and informative introduction to the art of classical ballet.

How do ballerinas dance on their toes? How do dancers spin and turn without getting dizzy? How do male dancers jump so high? Those questions and more will be answered during the demonstration, and favorite moments from ballets such as The Sleeping Beauty, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker™, and Swan Lake will be performed to live music. The Beauty of Ballet is recommended for ages 4 through adult.
And that's the scoop. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
