Thursday in the park with Babs.

NEW YORK STORIES

I stood in line to get tickets for a performance of “As You Like It” at the famed Shakespeare In The Park – Delacorte Theatre. It was an amazing evening of theatre and it almost made it to the trifecta but I didn’t like the amplified sound (I guess necessary for an outdoor production?). Sitting amongst the trees on a balmy night as the sun goes down watching Shakespeare’s words performed by a first rate cast (Lily Rabe was outstanding as Rosalind) was a highlight for me. After I scored the coveted free tickets I took a stroll through Central Park  and snapped some pics of park life. What a wonderful hive of activity, a magnificent park easily one of the best in the world.

Enjoy.

    Great pix. Love the couple reading the newspaper and the guy walking all the dogs. But please, sir, what exactly is Crack Pie? Also need to know more from you about recent mention of holography!

    • Crack pie was from Momofuki Milkbar an offshoot of the famed restaurant. It is basically a peanut butter type pie, I was underwhelmed.
      The holograms I will have to describe in person but very effective for crowd scenes on stage
