Wow! I got to be in "God of Carnage" on Broadway. This is me on the set. I played one of the pillows.

As usual, I earned my keep by helping out back stage.

After the show my friends Zach, Ken (as himself), Nina, and Marsha all got to be on the stage, too.

Here we are leaving the theater; it's sort of like Madison Square Garden.

Friday Nite with Yoyo Ma & Emanual Ax at Carnegie Hall, and The Marshall Tucker Band at B.B.

On Friday, January 29th, The Marshall Tucker Band was in Town the same night that Yoyo Ma and Emanual Ax were performing at Carnegie Hall. I saw both. Yoyo Ma & Emanual Ax were great, but to my liking, the program could have used a Brahms sonata. The MT Band, Southern Rock’s  best, just keeps getting better and better.

This duo, artistically combining passion, precision, and planning is outright heavely

Catherine Zeta-Jones was really wonderful.  After seeing Night Music, I’d see her in anything
She has a very nice singing voice; "Send in the Clowns" was my favorite song.

Whoa. I was working late in the office on November 9, 2009, and I noticed a big tent next to Carnegie Hall.  As it turns out, it was Glamor Magazine’s “2009 Woman of the Year” award ceremony. Well of course I went down to take a few pix. Rhianna won, and she looked beautiful in her white dress!

Margaret Cho performed at the Vixen in Provincetown while I was there on vacation. It was very sad, because she had laryngitis and couldn’t speak at all.  So, instead of doing her regular show, she did a fan dance and some other pretty funny stuff. Poor Margaret :-(
