The weather forecast for Tuesday was rain all day, so we changed our schedule. Before heading to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the day, we stopped at the Plaza. My friend, Kaye Wilkinson Barley, is a big fan of Eloise, so I made a point of taking some pictures for her. Happy Belated Birthday to Kaye and Eloise.
And, it definitely was rain all day. So, we enjoyed the Met, the Nativity Tree, some of the historic rooms, the Faberge eggs. We went to an exhibit of mourning clothes. Anna, who has been there numerous times, hit some of the highlights she thought I would enjoy. The Nativity Tree was definitely a highlight, with the angels in the tree, and the nativity scene all around it.
It's hard to catch cabs at the Met in the rain, so we shared a cab with a couple heading back to Broadway, too. We had dinner at an Italian restaurant on Restaurant Row, Orso, and went to see It's Only a Play. Probably the worst play we saw while we were there. Nathan Lane was funny. Megan Mullally, Rubert Grint, Stockard Channing, and a new young actor, Micah Stock were very good. But, the plot was dull, and Matthew Broderick was as dull as the plot. Very poor performance. With Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and Rubert Grint leaving, I wouldn't recommend this play to anyone.
