angela lansbury in “deuce” tonight

that’s what i’m doing, along with eating at i trulli.

it’s been a number of years since angela lansbury was on broadway. 1983 to be exact–a revival of “mame”. before that, you are in the ’70s with “sweeney todd”.

so as soon as i saw “deuce” go on sale, i jumped all over it. it’s a limited run–18 weeks. we bought tickets for my favorite time–in previews, a day or two before opening night. my logic with that is that most or all of the kinks will be worked out, and the cast’s energy is building, and if the show’s a hit you don’t have to deal with the madness that comes after opening night.

and if the show’s a flop you still got to see it. nothing worse than the show closing before the night you had tickets for a performance, if you really wanted to see it.

it’s been a while since we went to i trulli, but it’s wonderful non-red-sauce-italian food that’s consistently tasty, and the atmosphere and service are always top-notch.

i need a good new-york-style great night on the town.

i think i’m going to get it.
