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

Where-To-Go Wednesday - In the Company of Harold Prince

What: In the Company of Harold Prince

Where: New York Library of the Performing Arts
             40 Lincoln Center Plaza
              New York, NY

Who: All Ages

When: Through March 31, 2020


Mom's view: The current Harold Prince exhibit at the New York Library for the performing arts is very comprehensive. It gives an overview of Hal Prince's theatrical career by focusing on the many people he worked with over the years and the results of those collaborations. He worked with numerous producers, directors, playwrights, composers, designers and more. Some of his collaborators included George Abbott, Ruth Mitchell,  Stephen Sondheim,  and Eugene Lee to name just a few. Numerous artifacts are part of the exhibit including costumes, photos,  and set designs galore covering all of Prince's most famous shows as well as many of his lesser known ones. There are also many documents including telegrams, letters and even a handmarked Cabaret script and an Actor's Equity Association Standard Minimum Contract. Interactive aspects of the exhibit include interviews to listen to, scenes from musicals to watch and even a cabaret stage to perform on. If you truly want to go carefully through the exhibit and take in everything, it could take you quite a while but you would learn a lot not only about Harold Prince but about the history of musical theater. However, even if you don't intend to do that, it is still worth it to spend even a little time at the exhibit and relive all of these wonderful shows and the legacy of this prolific man.


And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
