Spending the week in Tokyo working with The Broadway Experience, a program that provides a week of musical theater dance, voice, and acting training to young performers. The weather has been cool and rainy, but I caught the first few sakura buds blossoming in nearby Ueno Park. Back to NYC on Sunday.

A Trip to Tao’s

October 26, 2016


I took Maggie on a walk to my friend Tao’s house this afternoon. Tao is one of those – to borrow a term from Emilie Wapnic – multipotentialites (see obligatory Ted Talk). He plays the trombone as well as he can draw a photorealistic sketch with charcoal, sight-read upright bass rep, make a bourbon latte, or lead a yoga class. Catch him at your local yoga studio until November. Then catch him somewhere in the US on the national tours of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and 42nd Street.

We got a dog. Maggie is a rescue from Alabama. She plays with her favorite toy, a small blue cow named Dolores. And she lets the elderly pet her on the street. We think she’s the absolute bee’s knees.
