Broadway Picks

HAIR01.jpgA quick detour from food for a second. You all know I’m a theater lover (and a certified playwright) so here are two picks for shows I think you’ll enjoy if you’re coming to New York.
The first, “Reasons To Be Pretty,” is the latest from Neil Labute (and a Tony nominee for Best Play). If you like theater that is contemporary, engaging, emotional and brutal, this is the show for you. It’s got a killer cast and a memorable plot involving a guy who tells his friend he thinks his girlfriend’s looks are “regular.” She finds out. Drama ensues. The other show I recommend is maybe the best revival I’ve ever seen and that would be the revival of “Hair.” This production has everything: great songs, a killer cast and an emotional center that’ll leave you teary by the end. Both shows have reasonably priced tickets so, if you’re at all curious, I say go! You won’t regret it.
