While her husband Barack Obama was trying to get a historic health care bill passed in Washington yesterday, Michelle and the girls got out of town and headed to New York where they took in a Broadway show!
The first lady took Malia and Sasha (along with a friend) to a matinee of "Memphis", a musical inspired by actual events about a a white radio disc jockey and a black singer whose love of music -- and each other -- transcends race lines and airwaves.
Before they took in the rather adult-sounding show, Michelle made time for kid stuff. With her mother along for the fun, the first family visited New York's famed F.A.O. Schwarz toy store for about an hour.
