I had a wonderful day in NYC yesterday, despite the fact that it's actually begining to feel like winter now and there was some snow flurries while we waited for our train in NJ.
So first of all, I saw Dan Radcliffe in Equus! And it was amazing!!! We were only a few feet away from the stage (the theatre was surprisingly small and intimate). Sadly, Richard Griffiths (Mr. Dursley in the movies) had an understudy-he was good, though I wouldn't be able to compare unless I saw it again.
Dan does have a very strong stage presence, and you could believe in the character he was playing (instead of thinking, OMG that's Dan Radcliffe/Harry Potter), though I have to admit that last bit of information was never too far from my mind. The entire play was sufficiently creepy and great, very well done and well acted by everyone. And no, I'm not going to comment on the goods at the end;) I'd definitely recommend this play to anyone with an interest in psychological dramas that question religion.
After the play, we got to visit FAO Schwartz which made me feel like a kid again...actually, I take that back because I always feel like a kid...so, ok, take two. I got to play in FAO Schwartz and felt like a kid playing in a toy store-yeah! Here's Laura and I in the Harry Potter section trying on Sorting Hats!
We went to dinner and I was successfully able to veganize my meal:-)
Then we headed off to Rockefeller Center to see the tree, though we made a few stops along the way for pictures of other pretty lights.
I didn't even know Laura was taking this picture, but my readers should be able to identify the picture as an important scene from the working draft chapter 2-do you get it?
Just take away the jacket and you've got...
Anyway, that's my current update-looking forward to being done with tomorrow, and finishing my fall semester of school. By Wednesday, I should be back into gear finishing the newest rewrite of chapter 1, and moving on!
