July 4th Reminiscing: Broadway Shows and 1776
Dad loved Broadway shows and took mom to the The Great White Way at least twice a month. When my little brother and I were old enough, they took us to see Annie, Pippin, Chicago, Cabaret, Camelot, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, Gemini, among others.
One show I found very entertaining, and remember to this day, was 1776, which opened on March 16, 1969. And my favorite song from that show, one that always makes me smile because of its catchy tune, is this:
Some fireworks might be rescheduled because of last night’s storm; check to make sure. If you plan being on the river, then remember first things first: boater safety.
Detailed information — including the Coast Guard’s weekly Local Notice to Mariners, excerpted and in its entirety — is listed under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website. A LNM primer is here.
Happy 4th of July. Stay safe and have fun!
I’d like to know what you think.
