My Fair Lady…

Making decisions is not an easy process.

Queen E. found it personally challenging.

My daughter puts decisions in the neutral position.

I fall somewhere in the middle.

David is the fast and furious.

Latest conundrum…do I basically give my family home away since the market is down 6%.

Should I give up carbs and sugar or is death a more comfortable alternative because frankly what is life without bread and chocolate.

A recent non-threatening decision, after much back and forth, I did decide to buy a ticket for My Fair Lady on Broadway.

Broadway musicals are so damn expensive.

Anyway, I am glad I vascillated because Laura Benanti recently replaced Lauren Ambrose and Benanti is spectacular…what a voice.

Henry Higgins, played by Harry Hadden-Paton of Downton Abbey fame, is wonderful and Rosemary Harris just took over for Diana Rigg and is pure grace.

The sets are spectacular and every song is iconic…what a treat!

I remember listening to the album on Sundays before NY Giants games.

Sundays in my childhood were bagels and lox, Broadway and football.

I definitely felt Queen E. and my dad’s presence during the show as I mouthed the words to all the memorable songs.

I have a vague recollection of seeing Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison in the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady…they don’t write music like that anymore.

Thanks Lerner & Loewe.

Great decision…wish they all were that easy.

    I loved the show and all the childhood memories that came flooding back. I remember my Dad and I singing “Get me to the church on time” in an effort to hustle my mom out of the house. I’m glad you went.
