It's Spring Break and I'm having a staycation. There's much to do in New York City, like Bach at One at St. Paul's Chapel on Monday, and the September 11th Memorial, which I'll visit for the first time tomorrow. Yesterday being a Wednesday, I was able to see the longest running show on Broadway, "The Fantasticks," with some visiting friends (I'd somehow never seen this oft-performed classic, an über-witty ode to poor theater, Americana, and Shakespeare too), and then the 85th anniversary gala of the Martha Graham Dance Company at City Center (tdf, of course, not $600 with black tie and Russian Tea Room), where "Chronicle" (1936), led by visitor Fang-Yi Sheu, knocked my socks off.
