A New York Weekend!

Next to Normal

Next to Normal

Just before Christmas, my son, Thomas & I had a great weekend taking in shows in New York City. We saw:

– Memphis

– Ragtime

– Finian’s Rainbow

– Next to Normal

All are great shows. Next to Normal with its rock music and story of the challenges of mental illness is completely mesmerizing. The show was so engaging that I felt exhausted when it was over.

The other three shows are interesting because of the similar themes: all three are about racial discrimination.

More about these later…
