best substitute for the all star game: damn yankees at city center main stage. virginia had mobilized this effort a month back and honestly i was meh about it. i was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed myself. a real musical for musical enthusiasts. oh, the fosse choreography sent me over the top. love, love, LOVE IT! (p.s. someone is psyched for sytycd tonight)
jane krakowski definitely has singing and dancing chops. you can really tell that she's got the broadway experience and feels at home on the stage. on the flip side, sean hayes is a relative newcomer to the broadway stage. he was great as applegate and could see the improv background come into play, as well as his classically trained piano skillz. go see this! it ends july 27.
worst late night excursion: yankees tickets pick-up and distribution around grand & henry. kristen was nice enough to use her yankee's hook-ups (thanks erin!) to get us fabulous seats for friday's game against the a's. the least i could do was pick them up. i was kinda dressy from the show, so i trekked down henry from the F stop. prolly the worst idea ever. good thing i walk with authority and a don't mess with me attitude. spotted some crack smoking too. i ended up walking back the same route to drop off a pair in chinatown and then another 2 pairs to the east village. kinda felt like i was a dealer - a dealer of sports goodness. hope you all enjoy friday because i risked my life for you. not really, but i should have listened to jen and put all those tickets at will call.
