NYC stop #2

Seeing a show on Broadway, is always a special treat. But getting to see a Broadway show in preview week? That is a super special decedent   Slice of O.M.G.(thank you Rebecca!) with a cherry on top.

And was it ever.

We saw a 2pm Matinee of

Shuffle Along

I would like to say that the show jammed, and danced, and tapped, and swing swang swung. But to say shuffle, nah, shuffle is something you do in the middle of the night half asleep to the bathroom. This show took me on a journey and schooled me.


A bitter sweet lesson in not only the history of this miraculous show, but in theater productions of that time and now.

It put any  privilege in check and  reminds me that only small steps have been made.

The cast was killer, and the history that they deliver was elegant and powerful.

Go see it!
