“Ann was a sensational one-woman triumph for Holland Taylor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Small venue with great sight lines and wonderful acoustics (Vivienne Beaumont theater) for this wonderful piece from Ms. Taylor. I knew Ann Richards before and during her time in Austin and feel that Holland Taylor captured her spirit quite well. This was obviously a labor of love for Ms. Taylor and I am so very pleased that she made this extraordinary effort. Seeing Ann was a highlight of my recent trip to NYC. I'm so glad I didn't miss this limited engagement performance.

“ballet is magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Lincoln Center is the place to be for music and ballet in NY. Beautiful setting and the fountain is such a fun attraction. Food is good, though expensive. Ballet was beautifully executed and costumes were bright and lovely. I attended a music event at Avery Fisher Hall also. Unique and very well received by the audience.

“Alvin Ailey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Went to the Koch Theater and it was lovely. There was not a bad seat in the house! If one ladies room was too crowded, there were 4 levels to choose from. I went to the top level to view the performance it was so neat!

We went to the Philarmonic. The performance was great and the conductor was so personable and explained each piece before the performance.

“Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

It's worth a few minutes to stop and wander through Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 66th Street). Take a photo at the famous fountain, get a view of the iconic Metropolitan Opera House, wander through the "temples" of classical performing arts and the renowned Juilliard School. Or if you have the time and interest, take a guided tour and see inside several of these world famous venues or see a Broadway show at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre.
