I went to Carnegie Hall for the first time the other night. I've never been to a theater quite like it. After ascending three of the steepest flights of stairs ever to the balcony, I then had to step down the most vertical set of steps to my seat. At this point, I felt like I was going to plunge head first into the orchestra pit. Then I looked up and saw the ceiling. I couldn't stop staring at (or into?) it. As mesmerizing as the music.
