Used to be a Sunday afternoon found the Henry Street Theater packed with kids.
Used to be going to the theatre was more normal that watching TV
Used to be being in a theater was as precious as riding the Staten Island Ferry
So I was surprised to see them sit down. And thrilled. Suddenly, braving bitter winds and cranky subways to see a show didn't see like such a rare event.
It reminded me of what leaving home used to be all about: watching alive, vibrant masters of their craft do what came naturally. In this case, re-enacting the radio show, the War of the World
and my favorite book, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I hear next week there is even more. Back to the Future!!
BRING THE KIDS!!!
