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

Saturday Special - Me and My Girl

What: Me and My Girl

Where: City Center Encores!
             New York City Center
             131 W. 55th St.
             New York, NY

Who: All ages

This event took place from May 9  - May 13

Mom's view: I recently had the opportunity to see City Center Encores! production of Me and My Girl, the last show in the 2018 Encores! season. The show was a complete delightful full of fun  songs highlighted by  the breezy title number and the catchy dance number The Lambeth Walk. It is hard to believe that the show has never been revived on Broadway even though the original was nominated for 13 Tony Awards of which it won 3. The story is quite enjoyable and incredibly funny. It is also kind of sweet and romantic.  The plot involves a combination of a gender reversed My Fair Lady and a gender reversed Princess Diaries. The leads in the City Center Encores production were played by the charming Christian Borle and the beautiful Laura Michelle Kelly. They made an adorable couple that you couldn't help root for. They were backed up by a talented array of performers full of lovely voices and fabulous feet. All in all, it was another winner for City Center Encores! and  a wonderful end to their historic 25th season.

If you can't wait to find out what they will be doing next at Encores!, you are in luck as they recently announced their upcoming season. The schedule of shows for Encores!  26th season will include the following shows:

Call Me Madam - February 6 - 10
