Since we were able to take more time to vacation at the beach this year (in MA), we felt fine sacrificing a day for a lightning-fast day trip to NYC for a matinee.

It seems to be between 4 and 4.5 hours one way, depending on traffic. So we took off around 7:30 on Saturday, parked on 43rd St. around noon, and had lunch. Then we headed to the Longacre Theater to see La Cage aux Folles, which was terrific.

Here is Kelsey Grammer signing Emily's Playbill and chatting after the show.

This is one of the "Cagelles," answering Emily's question about whether he always leaves his makeup on between shows on Saturdays.

And this is another actress from the show, Veanne Cox. I recognized her from Seinfeld, but couldn't remember the role. I was afraid that she's be insulted if I asked her, but she was cool and reminded me that she was Toby, the heckler who ended up getting her toe cut off by a bus!

The other star of the show, (Tony-Award winner) Douglas Hodge, did not come out afterwards, which was mildly disappointing. But his performance was phenomenal.

And we were home by just after 10! Might just become an annual tradition.
