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

News from DKC/O&M







Beginning Tuesday, June 13, two-time Tony Award®-winner and one of Broadway’s most treasured stars, Donna Murphy, will step into the role of Dolly Gallagher Levi for Tuesday evening performances of the upcoming Broadway revival of Michael Stewart’s (book) and Jerry Herman’s (music and lyrics) Hello, Dolly!, starring the legendary Bette Midler.  (Ms. Murphy will also take over the role during Ms. Midler’s vacations.)

Kevin Spacey will star in Clarence Darrow, the acclaimed solo show written by David. W. Rintels and directed by Thea Sharrock. First presented at the Old Vic Theatre in London, it will now come to New York for a unique two-night event at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York, on June 15th and 16th, 2017

Mr. Spacey first came across the play Clarence Darrow when he was in high school. The one-man show made its Broadway premiere at the Helen Hays Theatre in 1974. The real Clarence Darrow was a courageous man at the turn of the last century. He was a lawyer who steadfastly accepted cases nobody would take, fighting on behalf of the underdog and standing up for labor unions as well as being a staunch opponent of the death penalty during a career which spanned over 40 years. Through his dignity, intelligence and logic he often managed to convince judges and jurors to change their view, shift their prejudice and opt for a humane punishment on behalf of those he defended. Spacey brings Darrow to life over the course of 90 minutes, in which Darrow with his legendary wit relives some of his extraordinary experiences and infamous trials that established his reputation as a courtroom giant and civil rights hero.

Tickets for this very special engagement range from $89.00 to $350.00. For tickets go to Ticketmaster.com or call 800-982-2787. Performance will begin at 8:00pm nightly.

Claire and James take the same Tube to work, at the same time, every morning. Claire and James drink at the same pub with their same friends, every night. Claire and James have never met.
But all that is about to change when, after matching on a familiar dating app, they meet for an awkward first date. On their way home together, the brand new Night Tube breaks down. Forced to get to know each other a little better, things start to get weird.

Featuring an interfering public address system, a wise - and drunk - pub landlord, and a big swipe right,UNDERGROUND looks at the phenomenon of loneliness in a crowd, and what happens when the daily grind gets disrupted. Claire and James may never be the same again.

South Street Seaport Museum
Free Fridays Program
alternate Fridays through September 22, 2017

The South Street Seaport Museum announces its summer program of Free Fridays! Every other Friday between 3-7pm, the Seaport Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions, historic ship tours, educational and programmatic activities, artisan demonstrations at Bowne Printers, and more!

The Free Fridays program will feature special activities on selected topics; the upcoming Free Fridays program on June 16 will feature the Seaport Museum's flagship Wavertree and will offer visitors a special opportunity to step aboard, grab a halyard and raise one of the ship's sails!

On June 30th, the Free Fridays program will feature a special curatorial and collections walkthrough of the new exhibition, Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914, one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First-Class and Third-Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century.

Ships like TitanicOlympic, LusitaniaMauretaniaAquitania, and Imperatordominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.

From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart.

This exhibition will feature both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition will highlight a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87).
Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty.

Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday

Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original.

The exhibition will familiarize viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history.

Broadway premiere of the widely acclaimed comedy



Official opening June 29, 2017
Limited engagement through August 27, 2017
On Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Marvin’s Room began preview performances on June 8, 2017 and opens officially on June 29, 2017. This is a limited engagement through August 27, 2017 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42ndStreet).

The award-winning Marvin’s Room, is a wildly funny play about the laughter that can shine through life’s darkest moments. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son, Hank. Her estranged sister Bessie has her hands full with their elderly father, his soap opera-obsessed sister—and a brand-new life-or-death diagnosis. Now the women are about to reunite for the first time in 18 years. Are Lee’s good intentions and makeover skills enough to make up for her long absence? Can Bessie help Hank finally feel at home somewhere… or at least keep him from burning her house down? Can these almost-strangers become a family in time to make plans, make amends, and maybe make a trip to Disney World?

Opening night June 27, 2017
Limited engagement through September 3, 2017
Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre

Napoli, Brooklyn began preview performances on June 9, 2017 and opens officially on June 27, 2017 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 W 46th Street). This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway through September 3, 2017.

Napoli, Brooklyn is a gripping, provocative portrait of love in all its danger and beauty. In 1960 Brooklyn, the Muscolinos have raised three proud and passionate daughters. But as the girls come of age in a rapidly changing world, their paths diverge—in drastic and devastating ways—from their parents’ deeply traditional values. Despite their fierce love, each young woman harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart. When an earth-shattering event rocks their Park Slope neighborhood, life comes to a screeching halt and the Muscolino sisters are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future.

Tickets for Napoli, Brooklyn are available by calling 212.719.1300, online at roundabouttheatre.org, and in person at any Roundabout box office: The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 W 46th Street); American Airlines Theatre Box office (227 West 42nd Street) and Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street).
