Dr. Sue “Mrs. Hamilton the Musical” Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue’s Funny Review “Mrs. Hamilton the Musical”

“Hamilton the Musical” is a lot of laughs…after the show! I streamed the mega-hit, mega-bucks Broadway show on my computer. Due to the pandemic, Broadway is closed for live entertainment, but “Hamilton” now streams online – if you subscribe to Disney +.

I am in voluntary self-quarantine, so I spend most of my time at home with my computer – or going for morning, solo walks in my local park – where I became friendly with the Security Guard. I usually wear a mask, but the Guard and I (who remain six feet apart) remove our masks and enjoy lively, often humorous conversations.

The morning after I watched “Hamilton” I encountered the Security Guard. He had not seen the show on Broadway or online, so I summarized the story – with my own comic twist – and here it is!

Hamilton (a US Founding Father), a.k.a. “Mr. Ham” is the lead role. Mr. Ham, immigrates to the pre-USA, fights for independence, invents banking, flirts with his bride’s sister, insults people, and fathers a son – who gets into to a duel to defend his dad’s honor. Mr. Ham tells his son to shoot into the air – which gets him killed.

Mrs. Hamilton is really steamed – especially when Mr. Ham defends his financial honor to his enemies by pointing out that his suspicious check stubs were payments to the hubby of a local hottie for letting Ham and hottie do the nasty in the wife’s bed.

Mr. Ham gets into his own duel, shoots into the air, and gets himself killed.

The musical makes multi-millions – on stage and now…on screen.

The Security Guard and I plan to write a sequel called… “Mrs. Hamilton: I Married a Moron! “

In our version, Mrs. Ham gets the pistol and shoots Mr. Ham in his pee-pee.

She becomes a Founding Mother, and we become billionaires!

Our new, improved version has comedy and a happy ending! We expect it to be a success – on stage, screen and as a sitcom/reality show called… “I Married a Moron!” The married couple will be play by a celebrity wife and a famous US politico husband. Guess who!

We hope to spin-off the sitcom into dance-exercise videos – so you can social distance – and stay in shape! Here is a free sample!

Dr. Sue: “Come to the Orange Bunker-Boy Comedy Cabaret
Positive Entertainment

Here in solo quarantine due to Covid-19, life can be lonely and boring. Let’s face it, human beings need to share food, drinks…and show tunes!

All the theaters and cabaret venues in New York City are closed. There’s no stage, no scenery, no colored lights, no live audience – and worst of all – no cute waiters.

What’s a cabaret girl (or boy) to do? We still want to connect – and we need to stay creative. We need life purpose, we need human company, we need the arts, we need… “Orange Bunker-Boy Comedy Cabaret”!

Some of us live-stream; some of us zoom; some of us youtube, and some of us social media. Some online friends become ongoing friends – who comfort and cheer us through these dark days and nights – minus the bright light lights of Broadway and mini-lights of cabaret. This show is for you.

I call it my Home-Style Comedy Cabaret. It’s not as filling as home-fries, but on the bright side – I won’t have to burn calories at my gym – which is still closed 🙂

By the way, this show is called “Orange Bunker-Boy Comedy Cabaret” – so if you don’t like political comedy – or orange feather boas – and you do like the orange-themed POTUS – don’t watch my video!

But if you do, here we go-a with my boa!

What good is siting alone in your bunk?
Come to where rainbows play
With orange hair you’ll be quite a hunk
Come to Orange Bunker-Boy Comedy Cabaret!

Dr. Sue sings “Come to the Orange Bunker-Boy Comedy Cabaret”

Dr. Sue Sings “Cielito Lindo” Latin Diversity Song in NYC Park Positive Entertainment

New York City offers many pleasures. Some are public and exciting – like Broadway shows. Some are more personal and intimate – making new friends, crossing cultures, and sharing creativity!

Opportunities for Creative Connections are all around us- even in the epicenter of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. A great way to expand your cultural and personal horizons is to visit a city park!

Fortunately, I am able to take walks in my local park, where I often take photos and videos of flowers – and sometimes fish, ducks, and dogs!

I post my photos and videos on Social Media with short remarks and invite my online friends to comment – which they do! This gives a purpose to my walks and keeps me creatively active and connected – even while maintaining social distance.

Walking in the park near The Museum of Jewish Heritage, I encountered an Artist-Protester Elizabeth Abraham, who was displaying her personal creation – a “Black Lives Matter” picket sign-artwork she carries in protest marches. (My photo-video interview with Elizabeth is in another Blog Post.)

Elizabeth, who is considerate, artistic, adventurous, and good company, was looking for a friend – and so was I! She comes to my local park from her uptown apartment in Harlem. She uses the Access-A-Ride transportation service to come to my neighborhood park because she has a has a non-visible disability. Soon we started talking on the telephone to arrange ways to meet, socialize, and do activities together.

One day, Elizabeth told me that she was using Access-A-Ride to bring her 90-year-old family member to our park, and she invited me to meet her. Like Elizabeth, her family member, named Aida Marriott, is Puerto Rican. But unlike Elizabeth, Aida speaks only Spanish – no English – and she has Alzheimer’s Disease (with memory loss). But, said Elizabeth “She sings like a bird!”

This turned out to be true. Aida likes to sing – and so do I. As we were walking through the park, I started singing the Italian song “O Solo Mio” (mainly in English). Elizabeth complimented me on my singing. Encouraged by her support, I tried to think of a Spanish song. I remembered a lovely Mexican song called “Cielito Lindo” (Beautiful Little Sky). Soon Aida and I were singing together on a beautiful day in the park!

“Cielito Lindo” is simple, melodic, and easy-to-sing. Sometimes a simple song reaches beyond language barriers, memory loss, and cultural differences to connect as human beings… and open our hearts!

Here are the lyrics in Spanish – Scroll down for our video!

Cielito Lindo by Ana Gabriel

De la sierra, morena
Cielito lindo, vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros, cielito lindo
De contrabando

Ay, ay, ay, ay
Canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo, los corazones

By the way, Aida (who doesn’t speak English) removed her mask during our song. Elizabeth and I let it go. I said, “She’s 90-years-old. I’m not going to tell her what to do.”

Here is a Video of Our Singing Duet!

Dr. Sue Interviews Artist-Protester Black Lives Matter
Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Interviews Artist-Protester Elizabeth Abraham.

Ms. Abraham shares her artwork – a tall vertical sign, which she carries in protest marches in New York City.

The sign includes the letters “B L M” –
which stand for “Black Lives Matter.”
This popular, and sometimes controversial slogan
is often shouted in the streets.

Ms. Abraham asserts that we should fight racism – both here in mainland USA and in her native Puerto Rico. “Fight, fight, fight! But you don’t have to get physical, you can fight with intelligence.”

The other side of the sign shows a photograph of Reverend Martin Luther King.

Ms. Abraham quotes Reverend King, saying “We could have come in different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

Other symbolic items on this combination picket sign and 3-Dimensional collage art include: the USA Flag in a heart-shape, eyeglasses, and the numbers 2020 – because that is the current year – a year of vast upheaval, a pandemic, and a global confrontation of injustice.

The sign is designed as a vertical rectangle on a stick so that it is portable and visible. Ms. Abraham can hold her sign high above the crowd and be seen by participants and media.

As you’ll see by my video interview, Ms. Abraham speaks clearly and passionately about the protests and the death of George Floyd, the latest, glaring example of systemic racism.

But despite the seriousness of the issues, Ms. Abraham is never hostile or argumentative. In fact, the entire interview took place in an atmosphere of cooperation and sincere, friendly communication.

Ms. Abraham started creating her artwork as a way to give herself a a creative outlet and sense of purpose during a pandemic in New York City, where we have spent much time confined to our homes. This is especially true for seniors like Ms. Abraham, who are at extra risk for Covid-19.

Many people, who are stuck at home feel bored, unhappy, lonely, and fearful. But Ms. Abraham finds a way to turn a negative situation into an opportunity for growth, creativity, and sharing.

I hope that you enjoy this video:

Dr. Sue Original Funny Cuomosexual Song “Governor Cuomo, Donald Trump, Republican Cruise” Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Original Funny Cuomosexual Song “Governor Cuomo Donald Trump Republican Cruise” Positive Entertainment

Dear Governor Cuomo, I notice that when your brother Chris was sick with Covid-19, he had a fever dream – and you were in it!

Well, you give me fever!

And last night I had this fever dream about you, the Republican National Convention, and Donald Trump!

I heard on the news that North Carolina does not want to host the convention, but Florida does!

Guess what’s in Florida?
Miami!

Yes, Miami. When I think of Miami, I think of…Cruise Ships!

I think the Republicans should have their convention on a cruise ship. After all, most cruise ships sail under foreign flags and don’t pay US taxes – just like Donald Trump!

If Trump can cruise, why can’t I? So I wrote this song about our cruise –
just Andy, me… and the Republican National Convention!

Last night I had the strangest dream
– a feverish invention
I dreamed that I was on a cruise
The Republican National Convention!

Republicans held their Bibles
upside down at the buffet
They all got triple helpings –
and used the Bible as a tray!

They sat in crowded hot tubs,
which the virus did pollute
Trump joined in the action –
with no mask and no swimsuit!

His spray tan started melting, and his hair dye bleached his brain
Suddenly he saw me and yelled, “Get the anchor chain!”

They got the chain to lynch me, which is legal according to Republican Senator Paul
Then who show up in a speed boat? The Greatest Hero of Them All!”

– Parody Lyric by Susan “Dr. Sue” Horowitz –
inspired by the song “Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream” (by Ed McCurdy)

Dear Governor Cuomo, you showed up just in time to rescue me!
Yes, I have a dream. And with your help and the help of all good-hearted people, we can rescue the American dream!

Dr. Sue sings funny West Point Covid-19 song! Positive Entertainment

Hi, I’m Dr. Sue.

Hope you enjoy my original funny song. It’s called : “Covid-19”

My song is based on real (not fake) news about President Trump giving an in-person commencement speech at West Point Academy.

The young cadets have been away since early March.
But now, they have to travel back and forth to West Point
– fifty miles from New York City – the epicenter of a pandemic!

Dr. Sue imagines herself as a young cadet who’s getting nervous… 🙂

Dr. Sue “Here’s to Ducks” Positive Entertainment and Education

Dr. Sue, Entertaining Educator, says, “A Teacher is a Second Mother!”
When you teach with love – in a language the child understands –
the child (and everyone else ) wants to learn! This Blog post is geared toward communicating with young children, but the general ideas apply to all age groups.

Dr. Sue Duck Positive Entertainment
Dr. Sue Duck Positive Entertainment / Education

The language of children is toys, so I use toy ducks to teach a simple lesson.

One duck is floating in a glass, and another is hidden behind my hair.

(Watch for the reveal in the video – a kind of peek-a-boo moment.)

Teaching is a form of communication, and communication is a holistic experience that combines all the senses.

I’m wearing soft, appealing colors that blend together (mainly the yellow of the duck and the soft blues and apricot in my scarf). The sun is coming through the window, and there’s a plant and a painting – so the room looks inviting – a place you may like to visit.

You may also notice that I am smiling. My smile tells you that I like you, that I’m happy, that we are together, and that everything is okay.

Two Ducks
Two Ducks

Here’s another picture!

Can you see two things in this picture that are also in the first picture?

If you said the duck and the scarf – you are right!

How many ducks are in this picture?

If you combine the ducks in this picture and the duck in the first picture, how many ducks do you see?

If you said “three” – you are right!

These questions are simple but they give you a chance to interact with the pictures and text – and to be right! That’s very important. Everyone (including children) wants to succeed! Give people a chance to succeed step-by-step, from easy to more difficult. If they make a mistake, give them a chance to correct their errors, improve their skills, and move on to the next level. After we master the easy tasks, we are ready to move on to more challenging ones.

This learning principle applies not only to counting ducks, but to most learning – and many video games.

Creating this Website Blog involved learning many skills. At first it seemed overwhelming, but with the guidance of my excellent Web Developer/Coach, I learned to do many things I never thought I could!

There’s a stereotype that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But I am what you call an “older person” and I’m here to tell you that learning is a life-long process.

Now it’s time for the video.

As you listen to the video, you’ll notice that I combine speaking with classical music in the background. That’s two senses – visual and auditory (listening) words and music.
And don’t forget your sense of humor – my Duck has a name: “Quack!”

Children – and most people on the Internet – have a short attention span. This video is 22 seconds long – but it’s packed with information!

In only 22 seconds, you learn all these things

  • You learn my name: I’m “Dr. Sue”
  • You learn my brand: “Dr. Sue Positive Entertainment”
  • You learn what to expect from my brand: a positive experience, probably with humor and a chance to learn something.
  • You learn to interact with the video.
    You can look for repeating content in different images! You can count the ducks!
    You’re invited to make comments in the Blog and the YouTube Video!
    These interactions are simple – but simple interactions are how I learned to creae this Blog – with text, photos, a video, my logo with text and links – plus some hidden categories and tags that will help you find me on the internet.
  • You learn to give your viewer, audience, and students a way to interact and succeed!
    A successful interaction is more interesting and engaging than a passive experience.
  • You learn that are treated with caring and respect. That is my commitment to you!

Are you ready to watch my video?
It’s only 22 seconds long – so watch it as many times as you like!
How many ducks can you see? Watch the whole video to count my earring!
