Broadway Play in NYC


Hannah and I saw a broadway play called The Country Girl while in New York. The leading roles were played by Morgan Freeman, Francis McDormand, and Peter Gallagher. It was an excellent play about a washed up actor (Freeman) who gets a chance at a big role. However, he has an alcohol problem and very low self-esteem, unknown to the play’s director (Gallagher), who believes in him. The actor’s wife (McDormand) gets into a contentious relationship with the director because she is the only one who really knows the actor. It was made into a movie in 1954 and the tag-line was, How far should a woman go…to redeem the man she loves? Anyway, something I love about New York is the art. What other city can you see these great actors in a small intimate theater performing a great play?

    I’ve heard that Bob Dylan is hanging round near Aviemore and Ewan MacGregor spends some of his time in Lossiemouth.

    But NYC comes a close 3rd
