   Our trip continues in the hustle and bustle of New York. Right before my sister Virginia and I (right) visited our second Broadway show in as many days, we soaked in the sights and sounds in and around the streets of Manhattan. We visited the Ed Sullivan Theatre (home of Late Night with Stephen Colbert), Radio City Music Hall, and NBC Studios. There is also something special walking along Madison Avenue, and 5th Avenue.

   We also enjoyed the 21,043 performance of The Fantasticks at the Jerry Orbach Theatre. A farce that made a star of the famed character actor, it was an intimate setting that made this matinee performance a complete joyful experience. If you do the math, this stage play has been on Broadway since 1960, a worthy accomplishment.

   In between all of the tourist stops, I conducted a very popular Forgotten Hollywood program at the Mid Manhattan Branch of the New York Public Library; part of the 2016 Reel Abilities Film Festival.

   After a busy week, I’ll be home just before a nor’easter hits the Mid Atlantic seaboard. Whew!

Until next week>                              “never forget”
