>Off till next week

>Thank you all for the great discussion about adults and children reading. Richard and I are going to New York today to see Elizabeth and other assorted friends and two shows: the revival of Sunday in the Park with George, which was the first show I ever saw on Broadway, and Come Back, Little Sheba starring my favorite cop, Lieutenant Anita Van Buren.

For the Limoliner trip down and back I have the new Denise Mina, Natsuo Kirino’s Grotesque, and, on Miss Pod, Ha Jin’s A Free Life. Should be a sweet ride.

  1. >Oh enjoy! I have tickets for Sunday in April and I can’t wait.

  2. >Love Denise Mina. Enjoy!

  3. >Oh, Roger, you rogue! You lead such a charmed life. How I wish I were you!

  4. Roger Sutton says:

    >Sunday in the Park was great, especially the notoriously problematic second act. And, my, the things they can do with, er, color and light these days!

    Off to MOMA and a surprise inspection of John and Fuse at Donnell. I’m disguised as Angus McKillick.

    >That should be KILLICK, no MC btw. Angus has the most beautiful collection of striped shirts I have ever seen.

    MOMA is fortuitously providing a great companion to the Sunday in the Park revival with the show Color Chart: Reinventing Color 1950 to Today. There’s an online glimpse at but try and see the show if you can.
