Today we walked along the theater district, Times Square and Rockefeller Center. It was sunny and chilly (in the 40’s) today. Tomorrow is snow flurries but we hope to fly out early enough to beat and snow delays.

The crowds are here for tomorrow night’s ball drop and the barricades are up. We got caught in a sidewalk crowd jam earlier when a line for broadway cheap tickets converged with the rest of us trying to walk through times square. Kind of freaky…I don’t like to be packed in like that but we got through after several minutes.

Here’s a few pictures I took with my cell phone…

  1. She was great! Liza is legend and still as thrilling to watch and listen to as when I bought her music on 8 track tapes.

    She sang and danced and strutted and sweated so much she took off the fake eye lashes right on the stage and kept right on singing.

    The crowd gave her dozens of standing ovations after favorite Liza tunes and I learned about her mentor Kay Thompson from her 2nd half of the show tribute to an amazing show business professional who inspired her, taught her mother, Sinatra and others and who has been largely unsung through the years.

    If Liza does this show again after her NYC run and you have a chance to see her don’t miss it. She is at the Palace Theater right now until Jan 4th. There are artists and there are performers and then there are stars. Liza, for my generation, is a star… Tonight was very special…thank you Liza!
