I enjoyed a wonderfully busy, totally New York Thanksgiving this year! The day started off pretty early when my friend who works for Macy's and I got up to get our seats for the Thanksgiving Day Parade at Central Park South. We had a great view from the top row of grandstand seats with the masses of people who decided to come out. The weather was perfect for the parade too (not like the freezing cold or rain the other times I've been to see it!) After that, I headed out to Roosevelt Island for lunch with a small group of friends...and after eating so much there, I thought I'd never need to eat again. But of course, there was another dinner to go to in the evening and when seeing what everyone made, I couldn't resist another entire plate of Thanksgiving goodies (which of course includes dessert!) After we rested from eating (which is such hard work on Thanksgiving :) ) we danced off the extra calories in their living room! I'm so thankful to have had such wonderful people to spend the holiday with...hope yours was good, too!
Wreckio Ensemble hosted a depression era themed dance-a-thon a couple of weeks ago to promote their upcoming show, "Bail Out The Musical." My legs were pretty tired after 4 hours straight dancing to all types of music, but we all had a great time!
About "Bail Out"...
The federal government is bailing out American Theatre. But, if you want a slice of Uncle Sam's pie you have to take a stab at making a musical! In this hilarious new play a downtown performance artist, an ingenue from Kentucky, a flat chested burlesque dancer and Archie band together to write, rehearse and perform a musical in 48 hours. Will this random group of theatrical misfits receive the funding? Watch this absurd comedy about how far people are willing to go to cash in on the opportunity of a lifetime? www.wreckio.com
