TARZAN THE BROADWAY MUSICAL
Before and After Notes II
Monday, May 8, 2006
Noon arrival at La Guardia Airport
-- waiting for suitcases that arrived six hours later.
The ads in the background all
extoll the luxury of the Marriott's King-sized beds and luxury pillows
-- very tempting after our all-night
Arrival by limo outside the
Marriott Marquis on 45th Street.
Easy job for Joe the driver
as we had no luggage for him to worry about.
The luxurious Marriott bed and
pillows looked tempting after
a three-hour drive to Winnipeg
airport and Air Canada flights to La Guardia via Toronto.
We fought the temptation and
headed for Broadway.
The Coolest Elevators in
New York City
Tarzan has taken over Times
Skyscrapers, wall paper screens,
billboards, busses, etc. are all adorned with Disney Tarzan images.
The more authentic image of
the ape-man (Bill Stout art) on JoN's T-shirt attracts many stares and
At last! A Chinese restaurant
just off Broadway -- our first meal of the day.
Internet Cafe on 42nd St.
A time-out to see what the rest
of the world is doing and to catch up on ERB business.
More sight-seeing. We visit
Hello Deli beside the Ed Sullivan Theatre.
A chance to meet Rupert and
take away one of his T-shirts.
Looking down Broadway toward
the Iridium Jazz and Blues Club from the Ed Sullivan Theatre.
The day ends with a dinner show
at the Iridium Club,
where we catch the regular Monday
night appearance of 91-year-old guitar and tech legend Les Paul.
Les's reaction when he learns
I play a Fender Tele is caught on camera by Nathan
seated at the table beside us.
Nathan's young son had the foresight
to bring a pick-guard from a
Gibson Les Paul guitar which
Les autographed for him.
We had been about to go to the
club in our travelling shorts and T-shirts
but our luggage containing our
clothes arrived at the last minute.

A late night prowl around Times
This famous section of Manhattan
Island has been rejuvenated since our last visit many years ago.
Our first adventure plunged
us into the middle of a holdup situation.
Sue-On and I were pushed aside
by a desperate character who ran past us and down into the subway.
We were immediately surrounded
by converging NY police officers, on foot and mounted, all with guns drawn.
They were after a fugitive who
had just robbed a nearby liquor store.
Recovering from this we carried
on down Broadway until we were stopped by a movie crew
who asked us to look in disbelief
at a camera truck that was about to come down Broadway.
They were shooting a modern-day
we were to pretend that we were
watching a stage coach coming down the street.
