Saw Magic in the Moonlight tonight with Katrina and it was delightful! It wasn’t a groundbreaking movie or anything, but it’s the kind of light romantic comedy I enjoy: filled with lanky men in linen suits. It’s no Hannah and Her Sisters, it’s no Annie Hall, it’s no Purple Rose of Cairo, but it’s sweet and funny and I left the theater in a really good mood. Well cast, beautifully shot and romantic. I was satisfied.
Also, I was quite happy that they needed an out-of-focus cabaret singer at one point and it was played by a German cabaret singer I am actually a big fan of: Ute Lemper!
The coffee shop behind my apartment has outdoor seating and free wifi.
Yesterday I was up at 5am for work, then after work I had to take the train to Connecticut to work with some vocal students and then back to NYC. It seems like my days are completely packed or I have nothing going on. What do other people do with their Wednesday afternoons off??
Luckily I’m seeing 0katrina today at 5 so that’s gonna be fabulous. Maybe I’ll go to the Museum of the Moving Image beforehand, they have a new exhibit on Chuck Jones that I haven’t seen yet.
