much ado about nothing_in the park

This year's Shakespeare in the Park started off great with a performance of Much Ado About Nothing.  Really funny and well cast.  It's the last week so go see it if you have a chance.  Free tickets if you wait in line at Central Park. Watch the sunrise warm up and city and have a relaxing picnic day at the park while you wait in line with friends.  It's worth it.  Or enter the virtual lottery online if waiting isn't your thing.

 

Can't wait for the 2nd play of the summer, King Lear, starring John Lithgow.   Starting soon!

Architecture of a cinema great Alfred Hitchcock.  "The Wrong House--The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock" by Steven Jobs has piqued my curiosity.  

'The drawings are “reconstructions of spaces that never existed,” Jacobs says, and as such, they don’t always make sense architecturally.'
