Also, I have a helper.
I did the Japan Day run with NYRR with Fred on Sunday morning. It was the first time in over two years that we've run a race together. I thought we did pretty good - and (!!) - for the first time ever, Fred had to admit that I was pacing HIM at times (...which must mean I'm getting stronger - BOOYAH!)
I went to Soho Rep's A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney by Lucas Hnath. Yeah, I know: that's a mouthful of a title isn't it? This New York Times article gives a pretty good account of the play and its (pardon the pun) execution. I walked away from it feeling a little knocked off my keester. I like that. I couldn't decide if I really liked the play...or if I really liked the technique of the play. There's a fantastic peek at the format of the script -- HERE. Whew! It's amazing.
I also performed Comedy of Errors with Spontaneous Shakespeare Players last week. I had a small role as the Abbess, which gave me the opportunity to dip my toe into the SSP style without feeling too overwhelmed. I'm booked for a larger role next month (Gertrude...the mutha of all mothers) and I am really scared.
OOOO! New feature at the end of the blog! Back when I used to Instagram, I often received nice comments from people living in other places about how much they enjoyed my snaps of NYC life. I'm no longer on Instagram, but I thought I'd put a few of my "Life in NYC" pictures here at the end of each entry. Here's what happened throughout the past week:
