Be sure to contact them if there are outdoor activities. They could be canceled, or, perhaps, moved indoors.
The first New York City churches on any church tour list is Trinity Church. That’s because Trinity Church is one of the most famous churches in New York City. Here’s a bit of Trinity Church history. The church was founded in 1696 by a small group of Anglicans living in Manhattan. The towering building you see was built in 1705. A king, queen and a pirate helped build the church. alexander hamilton, the country’s first Secretary of the Treasury was one of the churchyard’s most famous residents.
Everyone seems to have an opinion on Sarah Palin, and so do I. I think she has a lot going for her but I am still not convinced she will ever have the stuff to become president. But I like her straight talking style and I admire what she has accomplished. I do cringe when she hits a sour note (The Couric interview was a disaster, no matter whose fault it was). That and the fact that she is everywhere usually is a deal-breaker for me. The fact that it isn’t says a lot about her.

Misinterpretation Recreation is a contest, hosted by Joseph Lymous, in which the contestants try their best to get the words of a song right, from “Holla Back Girl” to “Summer of ‘69″.

I do have one complaint. Frequently during the performance I was noticing that several of the actors had pitch problems. The orchestra was stacked on a second and third tier on opposite sides of the stage from each other. I found myself wondering if they couldn’t hear the band. If I had a dollar for every time an actor ever said to me as a stage manager “can I get more monitor” (you know who you are) I would be rich. Something for the show to think about moving forward. Because I’m guessing this show is going to be here a while.
