Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella has everything you like from the original story as well as some new clever twists that make it perfect for adults, too. Broadway’s latest version has everything: gorgeous, amazing sets and costumes, romance–and not for Cinderella alone–great music, exquisite acting, hilarious lines, and a new theme of forgiveness. Carly Rae Jepson as Cindy, Fran Drescher as the mean stepmother, and Victoria Clark as the Fairy Godmother were show-stopping great! I want to see it again!
Charleston, SC is a lovely, quaint city dripping with history. As far as homes go, the Nathaniel Russell mansion is one not to miss. Mr. Russell, a Rhode Island merchant, spent $80,000 on the house before 1809. He and his wife Sarah lived there in the early nineteenth century, and the home stayed in their family until 1859. The stunning interior has a self-supporting, elliptical staircase that spans three stories.
And finally, stroll through the breathtaking Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC to experience peace, beauty and a wealth of diversity of flowers, trees and landscaping. From peonies to lilies to wisteria and roses and maple trees to fish ponds, the gardens show off North Carolina’s natural beauty. Some of the wide open spaces offer free range for Frisbee enthusiasts, picnicking or just lounging.
