Saturday morning and I’m headed for NYC! Yay! It’ been exactly three months (January 16th) since I’ve headed north to see a show. That may not seem like a long time but before that I had been two months since I’d been to NYC and before that it had been 6 months since I’ve been to Broadway, so you can see I’ve shown great restraint.
This is a quick (metaphorically speaking) trip this weekend, up and back in the same day. We’re heading up to see Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia (see my synopsis post here). There are several reasons for seeing this show, one is an attempt to see all of Tom Stoppard’s plays performed, it’s starring Billy Crupud and Raul Esparza two actors I really admire and a friend asked “Do you want to go see Arcadia in NYC?” Typically all it takes to get me to NYC is someone saying “Do you want to go?” Which is really a rhetorical question because anybody who knows me knows that the answer is always “Yes.”
This trip I’m trying something different. I’ve tried most modes of transportation to NYC including planes, trains and automobiles so all that was left is the bus. It is, especially with the cost of gas right now, easily the cheapest. I am always concerned with a mode of transportation where the pick up is identified as “in front of the Quizno’s.” We’ll see how it goes. Check back later for a review of the play (and the bus ride).
