This is what I see as I sit and watch the actors work through The Merchant of Venice.
The hustle and bustle of 42nd Street – along with the architectural beauty of the building in the center photo. Boy, they don’t make them like that anymore, do they? The wedding cake-like layers building up to the top with that fabulous glass globe. The clock(s) – I haven’t seen the other sides – I wonder if there is a clock on each side? The stone carving…I love these older Manhattan skyscrapers.
At the end of next week, I will stay in the city during dress rehearsals, preview performances and opening night. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t get home until 2 or 3 in the morning! Hopefully, I will be able to grab some time to take more photos for you. It really is an amazing city. After opening, I have a 10 day break until I fly to Chicago for 3 days. The play is touring in Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles. The theater in Chicago is much bigger than any of the other venues, so I will be along to make sure all the actors can be heard.
I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow, so I’ll sign off.
