Treacherous Pavement: London Day Eight

We woke up and headed to breakfast, nearly slipping to our deaths on the pavement (sidewalk to US readers) which had iced over in the middle of the night. All the puddles from the 3am showers had frozen solid. Many cars had frosted windscreens, bonnets, and boots, and a few coming in even had snow […]

Jersey Boys (Third Viewing)

I was Karen’s emergency backup date for Jersey Boys after her regular date had a last minute cancellation. We were going to the Hard Rock to eat at Renegade for dinner, but they were closed (a previous visit to Renegade for my birthday can be found in this post). They have new hours and are […]

It was 20 years ago today…. BeatleMania Now Review

Last night at the HardRock Paradise Live, Karen and I saw BeatleMania Now — formerly of Broadway fame. Anything Beatles has got to be good, right? RIGHT? We (Karen and I) showed up, and ate at Renegade after trying to decide if we wanted Tatu or not. The waitress saw us and booted our waiter […]

England Day 3 (from 4pm) The David Beckham Chronicles

The rest of today was simple, with Rules closed we left the hotel for Little Italy — the one on Frith Street and not the chain. Since my last visit, it’s been totally remodelled, is twice the size and twice the price. But the food is a winner as always, so it doesn’t matter. Not […]

Wicked, The Review, (Ft Lauderdale 3-15-08)

Right, then. A good night at the theatre (or a bad one) always starts with dinner before the show. This one would be no exception. We ate, al fresco, at a place called the River House. The food was excellent, the service was slow but not bad. Our waiter, however, had the personality of a […]

Blue Man Group’s How to be a Megastar Tour v2.0

Having seen Blue Man Group (BMG) both in their original Las Vegas show at the Luxor and now in their How To Be A Megastar 2.0 Tour (Sunrise, Florida, 2-23-07), I can honestly say that I am conflicted. Often, the first time you see a show is usually the best — there’s too many new […]

Market Boy (Play Review)

Market Boy, a play by David Elridge was at the National Theatre in London. It was advertised as a comedy about losing your innocence whilst selling shoes in the market set to a 1980s soundtrack. The soundtrack was the best part. Although I liked it, it started out okay and never got any better, and […]

Avenue “Q” The Review (1-June-06) London Premiere

I finally got the chance to see Avenue Q whilst attending the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, but that version is a 90-minute edited version (see link at bottom of review). While in London this past week I had noticed the London premiere of Avenue Q was on 6-1-06 and I managed to get […]

Marry Poppins (Play Review)

We saw Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward Theatre in London, 29 May 2006. If you like the movie, you will like this play. If you love the movie, you will like this play. If you hate the movie, you will absolutely despise this play with a passion. In true Disney fashion, they’ve taken the […]

Avenue “Q” The Review (5-9-06 Wynn Las Vegas)

I’ve wanted to see Avenue Q since I saw the poster hanging up in New York City some time ago. Until now I haven’t managed to see it, but I finally got the chance whilst attending the National Hardware Show. Seats were easy to get which explains why it’s closing in two weeks. I loved […]
