This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

An Iconic Evening

January, 8, 2014

Last week, I attended a Broadway revival of Evita, an updated version of the original iconic three-time Tony award-winner. This rendition, a dance masterpiece, tangoed its way through the highs and lows of María Eva Duarte de Perón’s journey from poverty to triumph as Argentina’s glamorous, beloved first lady. The adaptation portrayed her using an arsenal of conniving tricks to reach her goals, but that was nothing compared to the tricky footwork of the dancers telling her story, complete with lifts, high kicks, and turns propelled by a spiced-up rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s renowned score.

The postlude to this touring theatrical feast was a real one at Seattle’s Icon Grill. The restaurant was decorated, as usual, with local art pieces and ornate blown glass.

And if you think you can exit while abstaining from one of their decadent desserts, think again!
