It was a ladies-only outing in New York on Sunday as Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, took in a Broadway show.

The first family saw a matinee of "Memphis," a musical about a white radio disc jockey and a black singer whose love of music -- and each other -- transcends race lines and airwaves, the New York Post reports.

The Obamas were seated after the rest of the audience was in the theater, and police kept crowds away outside.

Also on the Obamas' itinerary? A stop a F.A.O. Schwartz, of course.

President Obama didn't join his family, as he was back in Washington, D.C. awaiting the vote on the health care overhaul bill. But, after the historic passage of the bill, he probably doesn't mind missing the show too much.
