When I arrived from Manchester, England, July 29, 1947, I wanted to see Broadway. From American films, I knew that is where I wanted to be, and for the following 66 years, it has been my home. The day I stepped off the ship, I was amazed at all the theaters and cinemas on those few streets from 42nd St. to 54th St. In those wonderful days, cinemas had stage shows with their films, and my favorite film comedians, Abbot and Costello, were appearing live on stage at the Roxy, with the film I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now, starringJune Haver, whom I loved, and years later, I met and photographed her. I was in heaven. In the theaters, two American musicals, that were major hits in England, were still playing on Broadway, Annie Get Your Gun, with the magnificent Ethel Merman, and Oklahoma. Also, stars like Bert Lahr, Helen Hayes, James Stewart, Ralph Bellamy, Kay Francis and Bobby Clark were appearing in other shows. I knew then that there was no place in the world for me other than New York City.




































Off-Broadway, Shida, written and performed by Jeanette Bayardelle, is an 70-minute one woman  show, in which Bayardelle plays multiple characters, describing the tough life of a young black girl wanting to grow up to be a writer. On the way, she is sexually abused, becomes addicted to drugs and almost dies. That she succeeds in achieving her goal is the affirmation of her strong desire to overcome the obstacles in her life. It is a superb performance by a wonderful singer and actress. The opening night party took place at Characters NYC.

The 10th anniversary celebration of Avenue Q took place at Hudson Terrace with the current cast and former cast members of the successful show. It was a festive occasion.

Mostly Mozart opened its four week season with a splendid concert of five works, three by Beethoven and two by Mozart. Louis Langree led the orchestra in the three Beethoven works, beginning with Overture to Coriolan, and finished the program with a rousing interpretation of  the Symphony No. 7 in A major. Before the intermission. thePiano Concerto No, 4 in G major was performed by a brilliant soloist, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet. It was the highlight of the evening, and received a tremendous, well deserved ovation for the skill and dexterity revealed by this remarkable artist. The concerto never sounded better. Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote performed two vocal selections by Mozart competently, accompanied by the orchestra. 

Forever Tango held a press meet & greet for the "Prince of Salsa" Luis Enrique. He performed a number with the company, posed for photos followed by a Q & A.

MoMA presented A Woman is a Woman, by Jean-Luc Godard, France 1961, which features Anna Karina as a singer in a sleazy strip joint in Paris, who wants to have a baby. Her boyfriend Jean-Claude Brialy is reluctant, and she turns to his friend Jean-Paul Belmondo. Unfortunately, the three popular French actors play characters, who are silly and irritating. The film is supposed to be a comedy, but it is not funny, and the long, drawn out scenes are quite unbelievable. 

Ballet in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented again the 1862 ballet Pharaoh's Daughter, choreography by Pierre Lacotte after Marius Petipa, music by Cesare Pugni, by the Bolshoi Ballet in a live performance on November 25, 2012. It starred a stunning Svetlana Zakharova in the title role and Ruslan Skvortsov as the English lord. Both danced magnificently, as did the rest of the company in this elegant and sumptuous production with gorgeous costumes and sets. The orchestra played the score wonderfully, under the baton of Pavel Klinichev. It was a joy to watch from beginning to end.
