If Elaine and I were up there in Rockland, we'd be the first in line for this at my old friend, the Strand Theatre. I still remember the balcony where we'd go as kids and then later on with girlfriends!

We've been serious followers of "Downton Abbey" since its first year and have never missed an episode. It's a wonderful, classy show. Enjoy the opening of the 4th season at the Strand! Sure wish we could be with you.
