“O Romeo, Romeo, Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?”…

It’s Friday and I am serving up a pu pu platter of tasty morsels.

& Juliet just dropped on Broadway and while it won’t increase your IQ it will unleash your endorphins because you just want to get up and dance, dance, dance.

Will Shakespeare and his wife, Anne, host the evening.

Picture Juliet not dying and heading to Paris for a bit of fun. Remember she’s only 13, married after a four day relationship and her Romeo is allegedly dead.

The hook here is that Max Martin, the prolific hit making songwriter and show producer lends his pop music Grammy Award-winning catalog comprised of dozens of hits from the 90s through today to the & Juliet soundtrack.

Songs by *NSYNC, Britney Spears, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Bon Jovi and the Backstreet Boys cleverly serve as the musical backdrop to Juliet’s journey.

No matter your taste in TV shows take a gander at my daughter, the super TV agent, latest accomplishment.

Her client, the handsome and talented Taye Diggs, is hosting the Hulu series, Back In The Groove.

Older women surrounded by younger guys.

What a concept.

All our husbands/partners/boyfriends act like children at some point so why not take advantage of a younger guy’s bodily assets…Cougars have at it!

The eight-episode series follows three women in their 40s seeking to get out of their respective comfort zones and build relationships with men half their age.

The title and premise of the show is a play on the 1998 film adaption of How Stella Got Her Groove in which Diggs made his film debut.

Medical alert…here is proof positive to get your Covid booster and flu shot.

A hospital patient has been arrested after she allegedly twice switched off the oxygen equipment on which a fellow patient depended because it was too noisy…you just never know who your hospital bedfellows might be.

Productive week…WNBA star Brittney Griner was released from a Russian prison. We the people benched Herschel Walker and allegedly brought Agent Orange one step closer to an indictment. Aaron Judge remains in pinstripes, even though the price tag and length of contract is absurd.

If you are in NYC the midtown avenues are visually remarkable, decked out in holiday fabulosity.

And wrapping it all up…Included in my holiday gifts are donations to worthy causes. Some suggestions…Sheldrick Wildlife Trust which is best known for protecting elephants as well as operating the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
