As I sat and watched Curtains, I realized Carol thinks of New York as a theater town, as probably most people do. I think of New York as an art town, and spend my days so busily looking at art I am too tired to think about theater by evening. There was certainly a time I saw a lot of theater. On one trip from Chicago I must have seen six plays in 5 days. I’m not sure why I don’t love it as much now.
For our last day in town we went back to the TKTS booth, this time getting half-price tickets for The Drowsy Chaperone. It was a cute story, better costumes and music than Curtains, although very similar. Both are plays within plays and probably owe a lot to the Producers. After the play we walked around Ninth Avenue looking at people and architecture, met a friend for dinner back at Sala Thai. Next: home, school and more Japan planning.
