An Afternoon at the Theater without my Phone

Last month, I snagged a rush ticket to one of the many, highly anticipated shows hitting Broadway this spring, Second Stage Theater’s production of Take Me Out. A revival of the Tony-Award winning play by Richard Greenberg, I wasn’t overly familiar with the storyline beyond the blurb I read online while grabbing by ticket. Even…

Coming Soon to Broadway

This week, I saw two spectacular shows that just recently hit Broadway: • Plaza Suite — An inside look at three different couples’ experiences in Suite 719 at NYC’s Plaza Hotel — A couple on the verge of divorce on their anniversary, a big-time Hollywood filmmaker and his high school girlfriend, and a married couple…

A Party of One is Still a Party

I’ve definitely been living my best life so far in 2022, from the Jason Bateman weekend of weekends to seeing some of the biggest shows on Broadway.

The event was held at Farkas Hall on the Harvard campus. The theater was tiny, I think it…

Personally, I’ve found myself spending more time than exploring…

Life Lessons from a Frozen sing-along

What Elsa and Anna taught me about life

Frozen II was the last movie I saw in an actual theater, back before the coronavirus pandemic hit and shut down theaters along with everything else. A Disney film fan from way back, I collected all of the soundtracks so that I could listen to my favorites whenever I needed a pick-me-up. Looking back, this…

Work It! Job Hunting: The Musical

Over the last couple of  months, I’ve obviously been scanning job postings. I look at postings for all sorts of opportunities – both to see what I might want to do and to see what I might need to learn if I want to pursue various jobs. I find that LinkedIn makes this super easy,…
