Surrounded by Jim Browns
Pretty impressive for 71 years old!
Went to a preview performance tonight of Chita Rivera -- The Dancer's Life, which is a look back at the career of a Broadway legend.
I loved this show! Rivera dances up a storm and tells some funny and touching stories (the book is by Terrence McNally -- so I knew it would be good going in.)
My friend from Washington, DC, Jim Brown, was able to get us seats in the third row, center section of the Orchestra -- so that made the show all the better.
On the way to our seats I bumped into my other friend, Jim Brown, who used to live in Los Angeles and now is a professor in the Drama Department at Central Florida University in Orlando. Talk about your small world. We had a nice visit before the show -- even if people were complaining that we were blocking the aisle. Hopefully we'll have a chance to get together sometime this weekend while we're both here in New York City.
