So the Missus and I trundled Uptown to do some Met/gallery-hopping, and here’s some of what we saw (sorry, no visuals or links – we’re iPadlicked):
THE MET ALMOST ALWAYS MEETS EXPECTATIONS
The Steins Collect: Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian Avant-Garde did not disappoint – a sweeping survey of a remarkable family’s remarkable art collection.
Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, while hosting the most pretentious gathering of humans per square foot in the universe, still delivered a smart compare-and-contrast of two fashion giants.
Gagosian Gallery: Pablo Picasso and Francoise Gilot unplugged.
Jill Newhouse: Edouard Vuillard unplugged.
Luxembourg & Dayan: Domenico Gnoli unplugged.
LONELY, YOU WON’T BE
The Missus and I wound up Midtown at Second Stage Theatre for a performance of Lonely, I’m Not starring Topher Grace. We’ll turn this review over to the Missus: A totally charming, clever production that was just SO CUTE.
Rarely do we like – and care for – every character in a play, but this one we did.
Excellent ending to a swell day of arts.
