“you say I only hear what I want to.
you say I talk so all the time so…”

Since I heard that Lisa Loeb was going to be in concert in NY, I have had the lyrics to her 1994 hit single Stay (I Missed You) from the Reality Bites soundtrack going over and over in my head…
I was in high school when the movie came out, and, while I can’t remember much about the movie except that Winona Ryder and was in it, I definitely remember that song. (It’s all coming back to me, now I’ve got to rent that movie!)

Mama’s Night Out: Transport Group’s New Musical Queen of the Mist (Discount Code)

With all the expenses involved in getting out for an evening, it is a rarity that I leave the house after dark.

I was pretty excited when MamaDrama offered me the opportunity to see Maid of the Mist, a new musical written in its entirety by 5-time Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa.


I must admit, when I heard that the play was about Anna Edson Taylor,a 63-year-old woman in 1901 who shot down Niagara Falls in a barrel, I snorted aloud.  Then guffawed.  Then opted to take the tickets anyway, assuming the show would be nothing more than a laugh.
