What a fun night!
Things started once I met up with the Husband at Nobu 57. We picked out quite a few fun items off the menu, including the little Nobu tacos.... All I can say is that they were *good*!! We got one lobster and one king crab taco. Then came the Miso soup and salad that came with the sashimi dinner. Personally, I'm not a fan of miso soup... that was until I tried Nobu's miso soup. Now I understand why people eat this stuff! After that came our rock shrimp tempura with spicy sauce and grilled octopus. Then the sashimi dinner arrived, with spicy big eye tuna roll.
Here's a picture of what we left behind. (Aka little to nothing). It was terrific!
After dinner we headed over to the Schonfeld Theater for A Steady Rain with Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman. We got there at about 10 to 8pm and the line was two theaters past our own! We were lining up all the way to Shubert Alley!
As we headed in, the Husband spotted Frank Gifford, and of course, where there's Frank, there's Kathy Lee.
Once inside, the play started promptly and it was Fantastic!!!!!!! It was an hour and a half with no intermission and the guys did fabulously. As noted below, I am usually a theater figiter, but not tonight (let's not discuss that the also-aforementioned suede pants kind of stuck like velcro to the velour theater seats, so I really couldn't move much anyway...) but I was rivited! The dialogue had its funny moments, drama and at one point the audience even gasped.
This week's New York Magazine review of the show tagged it as standard police drama fare. While some of the twists and turns in the plot may have been a little over the top, I thought the staging of the play and the acting by far made up for any plot contrivances. If you have the chance to see it, I highly recommend it! Yay! Great birthday evening out!
