Minna von Barnhelm by Lessing at Sommerspiele Perchtoldsdorf

From 6/28 to 7/29 Minna von Barnhelm by Lessing is performed live at the Burg Perchtoldsdorf. Update: as every year: great theatre in front of the breathtaking scenery of the Burg Perchtoldsdorf. BTW: even the organisation of the event is second to none. Easy to find (and free!) parking places for cars, easy to read labels on the rows of seats so you can find your seat within seconds and a very nice buffet for eats and drinks for reasonable prices. Very convenient and highly recommended!

Harold and Maude at the Kammerspiele in Vienna

On 6/18 there is another live performance of Harold and Maude with Erni Mangold at the Kammerspiele in Vienna, Austria. Update: if you like the movie you will love the performance at the Kammerspiele, especially Erni Mangold is more than outstanding! Standing ovations afterwards! Update 2: this might be the last chance to see Erni Mangold live on stage. Only another 15 performances, before she says goodbye to stage.

Huawei P10 Plus

The Huawei P10 Plus is an amazing Android phone with curved 2560*1400 screen, dual Leica camera, finger print reader, NFC, IR, USB-Type c and support for 2 SIM cards, or 1 SIM card and 1 microSD card. IMHO the best Android phone available right now! Update: don´t get the black matte version, as it becomes really hot within a few seconds in the sun. If you intend to use it outside in the sun, too, get yourself a white or silver version! BTW: the camera app has a special mode for using the phone as a document scanner. Very convenient!

A Tribute to Dean Martin, 100 years Dino at the Vienna Metropol

On 6/7 at 8pm there is A Tribute to Dean Martin, 100 years Dino by Werner Woehrer at the Metropol theatre in Vienna, Austria. Unfortunately I missed Dean Martin live in Las Vegas a few times only by a few days, when I was there for Comdex :-( Update: although Werner Woehrer didn´t have his best day, the performance of singer Claudine Gerrits was outstanding!
