How Well Do You Know Broadway?

September 26, 2022

One of the categories on a recent Jeopardy! episode was “Take the Broadway Home.”  Here are the answers; just come up with the correct question for each.  I’ll give those questions in a future post:

  1. In 217, Keegan-Michael Kay & this comic made their Broadway debuts in Steve Martin’s “Meteor Showers.”
  2. This actor with “Red” in his name won a Tony in his Broadway debut in the art play “Red.”
  3. In 2022 this veteran funnyman took to the stage as the marvelous Buddy Young Jr. in “Mr. Saturday Night.”
  4. Future Golden Girl Bea Arthur was Yente in the 1964 opening night cast of this musical set in 1905.
  5. Sally Hawkins & Adam Driver both made their debuts in the revival of this playwright’s “Mrs. Warren’s Profession.”

Enjoy Labor Day!

September 5, 2022

Each year, we celebrate Labor Day here in the United States on the first Monday in September (many other countries celebrate the May 1 Labour Day, but of course we are different), and many of us mourn it as the unofficial end of summer, yet celebrating it as the unofficial start of football season.  But do you know the history of this holiday?  It actually originated in Canada when a parade supporting the Trade Union Act was held in Toronto in 1872.  Ten years later, American labor leader Peter McGuire saw the parade in Toronto and was inspired to organize a similar parade in New York City on September 5, 1882, becoming the first Labor Day here.  After the bloody Pullman strike of 1894, President Cleveland and Congress hurriedly passed a bill making Labor Day a national holiday.  Good news, the NYC Labor Day parade will be held again this year, starting at 11am today in Brooklyn.  Enjoy the day!

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers in the category “Which New York City Borough?” I posted last week:

  1. Is home to the New York Stock Exchange. – What is Manhattan?
  2. Is the most populous of the 5 boroughs. – What is Brooklyn?
  3. Is where you can see the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, built for the 1964 World’s Fair. – What is Queens?
  4. Is 14 miles long & has only about 5% of New York City’s population. – What is Staten Island?
  5. Is the location of Pelham Bay Park, which is more than 3 times larger than Central Park.  – What is the Bronx?

I got all of them correct; how did you do?
