There are many restaurants in the theater district- all kinds of food and price range. Just read the menu outside and make your decision. There are lots of chain restaurants- with higher prices than you may be accustomed to- but you are in the city- be adventurous, try something unique.

The weather was warm. I wore slack set. Have noticed New York audiences, especially at matinees, dress in all styles- jeans, suits, sandals, sneakers. They dress up more in the evening, but you still see the casually dressed theater-goer..

Very enjoyable show with the original cast. The 3 stars were terrific though Ms. Williams appears miscast as the wife. Way too pretty and older.

I thoroughly enjoyed this play. Cicely Tyson was amazing! Her Tony was well earned.

This kind of celebrity casting should always cause some caution flags to fly. Cicely Tyson did an excellent job, but Cuba Gooding Jr. was as bad as Tyson was good. Vanessa Williams fell somewhere between the two. The production was generally...continued
