I am so glad you and your wife were able to see all those performances!
The title to this link should include All performance…it’s all connected!
I love Steve Martin (multitalented beyond comedy/music too)
The play sounds awesome! And my God how we need laughter! Vitally now!
A friend of mine from California was able to get tickets to Hamilton when she traveled to her former stomping grounds in NYC…very thrilled too!
I know it was on demand as well but nothing like a live performance!
All my NY friends love it even if not all have seen it live:-)
Monty Python? John Cleese? (yeah yeah yeah) What a wonderful birthday gift to your wife!!
Laughter lightens the soul! Music opens the heart.
And by universe and transcendence we desperately need that balance!
Healing for the Spirit heart and mind as well as the body.
Think I read somewhere how some Drs and Nurses were playing music for patients on recovery from CV and when the patients left the hospital they played “Here Comes the Sun.”
The energetic potential in Art/Performance/Music/dance is beautiful and Sacred and healing (Hope that doesn’t sound too over the top) laugh.
When I saw Robert Mirabal perform live, he told our audience “you don’t know it but you just participated in a ceremony.” And there was definitely energy in the show, in the atmosphere, that something “in-between.” No one left unaffected. It was sort of like a prayer for peace.
And George Harrison’s sister Lou once came to Beatlefest and told the story of a depressed young man determined to end his life…and he put on his parents Beatles records…but something miraculous happened…with each one he felt a little less depressed and by the third he was cheerful and called the hospital because he didn’t want to die.
Yes I agree! Prayers and healing! A better horizon! And a return of Bodhisattva! From the Heart!
