" Life is too abrupt to take seriously." - J.M. Barrie, Finding Neverland
The audience applauded loudly as the bright light (synonymous to that of Tinkerbell's ) traveled in the center stage of the theater. I guess we all believe in fairies.
I laughed, cheered and cried as the actors reminded me of not giving up on my dreams, to "work hard" for what I'm passionate about and ---my Dad who will always be on every page of my imagination.
I was hoping to come out of the play singing songs from the play - but there was not one memorable tune. However, that didn't stop me from enjoying the play.
The stage production was so magical that it revived the child in me. I felt like rushing home and gather the linens and act out the ship-at-sea scene with my children.
A commotion occurred during intermission. Apparently, there was a famous soccer player in the audience. The children all rushed to get his autograph. It took awhile before the ushers led the children back to their seats.
The final act brought tears to most of the women in the audience - mostly the mothers, the aunts and the sisters.
After the play, boys and girls all lined up waiting for the actors and actresses.
My sister and I were waiting to meet with my hubby and son for an impromptu dinner at Virgil's when the talented Matthew Morrison who played the lead character, J.M. Barrie, came out of the theater to sign autographs.
Here are some more photos from my adventures in New York.
