Broadway is Back!!

 

It was another exciting day in New York.  We went to see the musical "The Tina Turner Story" for a 2:00PM matinee performance.  The show was outstanding as I had hoped it would be.  The star, Adrienne Warren was amazing.  


After the play, we made our way to one of our favorite New York restaurants called JoJo.  Over our table were some lamps that immediately made me think of Tina Turner.  Look at all that fringe!
















Then from the restaurant, we walked back to the hotel enjoying the window shopping on Madison Avenue and a view of St. Patrick's Cathedral at night.  (That walk was from 64th Street and Lexington to 46th Street and & 7th Avenue.  A few of you will know exactly how far that is.)


























I turned around a got a photo of Rockefeller Center with a giant pumpkin in front.  It was a great walk and what was even better was the weather.  It was in 70's!  Amazingly warm for late October.

Oh what beautiful pictures, on what sounds like a magical evening. I would love to see the musical about Tina Turner….So happy that Broadway is back not only for the actors and the large group of backstage workers..but for the audience as well!

I'm glad you're getting some good walking in, and in nice weather to boot! I saw Tina Turner live back in the spring of 2000 and it was a FANTASTIC concert. I will never forget it.

Do you know that one NYC block N/S is 1/20 mile? So one mile is 20 NYC blocks N/S.
There is no similar equivalent for E/W blocks.
So it was a mile N/S and Third Ave to 7th Ave is a lot.....

Good thing you are a walker.
