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

Theater Thursday- Fruma- Sarah (Waiting in the Wings)

We were given complimentary tickets to Fruma Sarah (Waiting in the Wings) for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: Fruma Sarah (Waiting in the Wings)

Where: Nancy Manocherian’s the cell theatre 
              338 West 23rd Street
              New York, NY

Who: 16 and Up

When: Through July 25, 2020

Fruma Sarah (Waiting in the Wings) is the story of  Ariana, an experienced community theater actress waiting in the wings to make her entrance as Fruma-Sarah in a local production of Fiddler on the Roof. She is used to being alone for the hour until she is able to make her entrance, but on this night a no-nonsense substitute fly captain waits with her so she has a chance to gripe, complain, reminiscence, and finally expose a deeper side of herself than she normally displays. The play can be funny, sad, and at times extremely dark. Accordingly,  I wouldn't recommend it for anyone younger than16. The show stars Jackie Hoffman who coincidentally pre-pandemic most recently played the role of Yente, the matchmaker, in the Yiddish version of Fiddler on the Roof and Kelly Kinsella, who among other things has had an extensive career performing solo shows. Both are perfect for their roles. Anyone who has ever felt alone or like things are not going completely like you would want them to go can relate to this play. 

And that's our view. Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.
