You People are So Damn Lucky!

Birthday weekend is over and four more shows are done and gone.  A terrific friend and I had a terrific
time watching The Christians, Cloud Nine, Fool for Love, and King Charles III.  As I was leaving the theatre after the last of the four shows, I overheard some of the obviously native New Yorkers claim how their theatre going experience has been a bit tiring, a bit predictable, a bit inconvenient – – what with crowds and parking, you know.

And I thought politely, β€œShut the f*** up. You have no idea what a privilege it is to have this be your regular experience!  And again with great deference and respect, β€œShut the f*** up.

Back to NYC in early November for more NYC lovin’ .  Till then, please check out my back-to-work
