Fiona, who knows about science, swears that selfies make you happier. We spent 7 hours together on a Manhattan/immersive theater adventure. #governorsisland #theaterofthemind #saysomethingbunny #gelato #ferrycitibiketaxi


@mbbandco #metworkout was pure joy this morning. Everyone should get to exercise to the BeeGees and Lionel Ritchie while looking at sculpture. Cmon @metmuseum #everydayMetWorkout. 📷 Mallory Lynn

Look: dad is a character in Richard Nelson’s new play, Illyria, at the Public. Crazy sweet night in the Anspacher (where mom and dad were married) with Mandy Hackett and Will Brill and the whole excellent company. Feeling a lot of love for that place and its history and those who reshaped New York City.

I had to repost @billheckyes from Nebraska because it resonates pure realness for me.

The Town Hall

Dad served in the US Army from '42-'45. While stationed in Oahu, he saw a performance of Macbeth with Maurice Evans and Dame Judith Anderson. He found out that it was a special unit of the army and sought a transfer and got one through his high school buddy Bill Corrigan in the Navy, who knew Maurice Evans. Dad served as technician for "GI Hamlet" and other shows that toured Hawaii (and after the war, the US), that started his professional career in the theater. We looked at photos yesterday. His army memories make him very nostalgic.
