Well, hello fellow bloggers and avid readers. It’s that time once again when I look through my spam filter to discover all the wonderfully weird and lascivious comments I receive here. It’s gonna be Huuuuge. The Best. So Unprecedented. Just Tremendous. The Golden Showers of blog spam!

16 weeks only. A must see! Wow, that was terrific!

As I had seen the movie so many years ago I had almost forgotten the actual storyline. I have also never read the book so this incarnation of Misery was pretty brand new to me. As a three character play spanning over 90 minutes I was enthralled for the whole ride. We were lucky enough to have been invited to see this while still in previews. The perks of living in NYC, being a blogger, and Yelp member. Comp tickets for the win! The night we were there it was a full house, and I can gather it will be for every future performance.

Bruce Willis is, well, Bruce Willis. He just has that “it factor” and knows how to milk a roll whether it be dramatic, action, or humorous. He has a knack for ironic comic timing and did quite well portraying Paul Sheldon. The dude is a star.

As you have heard Italians can be very loud and passionate. It was all in love, and to this day I can still hear their voices inside my head. The yelling. The screaming. The laughing. I miss all of it.

Suffice to say, I was extremely pleased to be invited to a blogger event to view a recent performance of Dinner With The Boys. This off-Broadway play was written and performed by Dan Lauria/Charlie (The Wonder Years), and along with Richard Zavaglia/Dom (Donnie Brasco), and Ray Abruzzo/Big Anthony Jr ( The Sopranos) put on a terrific show!  Continue reading Having Dinner With The Boys off-Broadway in NYC!
