Soho & Screwtape

This was one of those weeks I wish I had the time to be a more regular blogger. There was so much happening in the news and in the city that could have been the subject of several posts.

But, before any more time passed, I did want to record that my friend Heidi Price-Brayer drove up from the 'Burgh last weekend for a quick visit. I've known Heidi since 1998 when we both were staff writers at the Observer-Reporter in Washington, PA.

We walked all around Soho, took in the Picasso exhibit at the Met, grabbed a bite at Island Burger and experienced a performance of "The Screwtape Letters" at the West Side Theater.

A play based on the book by the great C.S. Lewis, "Screwtape" is easy to recommend. It's entertaining theater. It's not dated. And, for believers and non-believers alike, the play provides ample food for thought about the temptations of life.

Aside: I love this line from "Screwtape": "I do not expect old heads on young shoulders."

The photo above from "The Screwtape Letters" is from here.

Ant & I saw Screwtape a couple of years ago... sadly, it was after a day at the store, and fell asleep for a large portion of it. From what I remember of it, however, it was very interesting.

Hope to see you soon!
