One more trip to NYC is in the books, and the city never disappoints. Nor does the company. Troy and Luis make it so easy to be there. I was barely recovered from the sleep deprivation before I started thinking about when I’d like to go back again!
And this time I had the pleasure of the company of my sister-in-law, as well! We had delayed flights going to NYC and a cancelled flight home, but that only meant that we had a bonus day, with bonus walks, bonus time at Times Square, a bonus show, bonus girl-talk, and a bonus “order-in meal” for watching the Grammy’s!
We saw the new show , “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” which was such a hoot! We had great seats (first row!) and we laughed as we watched the D’ysquith’s die one by one! The man who played all the D’ysquiths was so impressive, as was the heir who was assisting them in their demise. Very fun!
Saturday we saw “Cinderella” – the last weekend with the original cast! It is a beautiful and magical show, and even with the knowledge that I should pay attention to certain things, I still couldn’t figure out the magic. Very beautiful.
Saturday night we went to see a silly band who sang amazing mash-up songs in their underwear! They’re called The Skivvies, and they had special guests come on stage and sing (also in their underwear) and it was so fun! It was at 54 Below, which is a sort of underground Cabaret featuring a lot of Broadway performers on their nights off. So glad we went…
Sunday morning American Airlines called and said that our flight out of Chicago was cancelled so we had an extra day in NYC! We were able to get great tickets to see “Matilda” – and I liked it even better than the first time I saw it! The new girl was amazing, the new Trunchbull was hilarious, and the oohs of the kids in the audience was great atmosphere! It was just so fun! Loved it so much! So glad we got to stay and enjoy another day in NYC!
We also had so many treats while in NYC! We went on a cupcake tour of the East Village (and Lower East Side), stopped at Magnolia Bakery, Pieface, and the Cake Boss Bakery. Everywhere we went we had deliciousness and goodness. Loved the tour with Adriana Trigiani Tours!
The pictures above are just a sampling. I posted (way too many?) on Facebook and still have hundreds to look at. I always love looking at the buildings – old and new – and the walks outside were very comfortable in the teens and twenty degree temperatures. I’m not sure I’d travel in January again, unless I knew that I had time to spare for travel glitches, but I’m so glad that I went in January 2014.
