Only in New York

As we were exiting the performance of American Idiot, we noticed barricades being set up outside the theatre for the last showing of The Merchant of Venice. We were more than a little excited to be in the presence of the real Michael Corleone.

We stood vigil behind the barricades and security tape, cameras at the ready. A significant crowd was forming. After an hour of waiting one young voice in the crowd behind me asked her Mother why we were waiting. The youngster just did not understand,she proclaimed: "CAPPUCCINO? We can get that at Starbucks!!!"

Twenty minutes later, out came Al Pacino who signed dozens of autographs, ascended his ride and waved to the crowd blew us all a kiss and drove off to the wrap party. Hoo-ha!
