Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Breakfast on Broadway

on November 26, 2013

Oh, what a beautiful morning! 

DSC01881Now what would make me say that on a gray day with so much threat in the weather forecast?

Last night, Dad took me to see “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” starring the chameleon-like Jefferson Mays in about a dozen parts.

The show was inventive, pretty to look at, Mays and his co-star Bryce Pinkham as the murderer of all his rivals to an earldom were fabulous, and it was perfect for those of us on the edges of our seats waiting for the new season of “Downton Abbey” to start. But…as a musical, it had no memorable music. Less than 24 hours later, I couldn’t sing you a single song.

During its Golden Age, the hits popped off Broadway stages and into people’s memories like bubbles in good champagne. “Guys and Dolls,” “Call Me Madam,” and “South Pacific” were all running at the same time in 1950!

I know, I know…stop with all the nostalgia. Live in the present, look to the future. Just give me some wonderful rhythm and melody to take me there!
