“Liam Nelson in a One Man Play”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Avery Hall has fabulous performances. Liam Nelson alone on a stage in "What About Joe" Not a lengthy performance but explosive just the same.

“Summer Mozart”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Tis event inspired my NYC trip. Absolutely amazing. Felt so cultural, all dressed up at this Wed. Night performance. One inside tip...if you have an option for "stage" seats buy them! I was unsure what they were and passed on these value priced seats. They are actually on the stage surrounding the musicians. Maybe some would say the acoustics are off in these seats but I don't see how. I would've loved to sit behind the musicians, which was an option, as to see the conductors face during performance. I don't think you could get a bad seat in this location. The whole evening was lovely. Side note:cab from Times Square was only about $12 bucks...worth it to skip the subway in heels.

“High culture with the gloss intact - loving Lincoln Center.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I adore Lincoln Center; just stepping out of the cab and walking up the stairway to the plaza, I get happy. Why? Because I'm assured that I'm about to experience one of the great joys - maybe the greatest - of living in/near one of the world's greatest cities; a close encounter with high culture, whether it's the Metropolitan Opera, or one of our stellar ballet companies, or a top flight theatrical production. The theaters are beautiful and beautifully-run, and the performances and productions you'll see there compare favorably with the best of any country in the world. It's New York at its most intelligent and cosmopolitan. Plus, those wonderful murals by Chagall! If you love culture, or want to dip a toe in it just because you're in New York, you couldn't find a lovelier place. Dress up and make it special.
