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

Me - Today I am talking about Panama Hattie. Panama Hattie is the third and last show of this Fall's Musicals In Mufti series at the York Theater. The show is about a woman named Hattie who is engaged  to a man named Nick so she is trying to impress his  young daughter and his boss. This is a really good show. It is funny. It is full of good songs by Cole Porter. The acting is terrific especially that of Klea Blackhurst who plays Hattie and the adorable, Kylie Kuioka who plays Geraldine, Nick's young daughter. The friendship they develop is so sweet. This is a show not to be missed!

What: Quiet Enjoyment

Who: Recommended for Ages 16 and Up

When: Through November 3, 2019


Mom - Today I am talking about Quiet Enjoyment. Quiet Enjoyment is a show about a co-op closing gone horribly wrong. Just the description of the show offers the promise of something hysterically funny. While the actual show is funny, it is a little less funny than it seems like it would be.The standouts in the cast are Samantha Mercado Tudda as Meredith Cudliup, the uptight junior manager handling her first co-op closing and Megan Simard as Karma the free spirited younger girlfriend of the co-op's owner. This is not to say that none of the other actors are any good just that these two were clearly the most impressive. All in all, while the show is entertaining, it is a little slow at times and feels like it could be a little funnier or maybe it would be with a slightly different cast.
