Cheers to 2022

As we ring in the New Year and move forward on managing the pandemic, here are some activities and things to look forward to in 2022.

Broadway Shows

Broadway is not the only place to see a great performance.  Shows that will be touring in 2022 include To Kill a Mockingbird, Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, Hamilton, and always Wicked.

Winter Olympics

The 2022 Winter Olympic Games are scheduled to take place from Friday, February 4 to Sunday, February 20 in Beijing, China. The Winter Olympics feature seven sports over 15 disciplines in a record 109 events with the monobob as the leading new event.

New Movies

The box office is opening up in 2022 with many highly anticipated movies:

  • Death on the Nile – Already delayed a couple of times by the pandemic, this follow-up to 2017’s whodunit Murder on the Orient Express will again star the outrageously mustached Kenneth Branagh as everybody’s favorite persnickety Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot.
  • The Batman – Robert Pattinson is the next to wear the cape in this version that looks to be a darker-than-dark DC outing abetted by that always-welcome loose-screw Paul Dano as the Riddler.
  • Bullet Train – Brad Pitt shifts into action-star mode in what sounds like a giddy, action-packed cross between John Wick and Snowpiercer.
  • Mission Impossible – This series has become the gold standard when it comes to smart blockbusters. Watching Tom Cruise risk busting his neck (or worse) while doing his own stunts, this will be a fall hit.

A new year is always exciting when it starts with new events to look forward to.
