As a rabid New York Giants fan, my heart stopped a few times during yesterday’s game until hero Lawrence Tynes kicked the game-winning field goal. I was proud of Big Blue’s special teams and impressed by both teams’ defense.
The most important thing, though, that I take from the game: gratitude. Performing my Off-Broadway comedy show, Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer, every Saturday night at SoHo Playhouse is a joy. And, I’m thrilled that I’m part of a community that birthed dynamic Tony Award-winning and Emmy-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth. The Oklahoma native performed just blocks away from SoHo Playhouse in the longest running musical, The Fantasticks, at the now defunct Sullivan Street Playhouse. Yesterday, her operatic vocals packed a punch, even drowning out the San Francisco Forty-Niners fans’ boos of my beloved Giants as she beautifully sang the National Anthem.
I don’t possess Ms. Chenoweth’s powerful pipes, but that’s what makes New York the best city on earth: the diversity of performers on Off-Broadway, Broadway and beyond. When you’re in the market for a 10:00 pm Saturday night comedy show, check out my show and meet me and my Mascot.
