President Barack Obama kept a campaign promise he made to his wife Michelle and whisked her off to the Big Apple Saturday night to see a Broadway play.

I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished,” the president said in a statement an aide read to the press.

After grabbing a two-hour dinner at Blue Hill, a West Village restaurant touted by New York magazine as a “seminal Greenmarket haven” that features food grown by chef and owner Dan Barber on his upstate farm, the Obama’s arrived at the Belasco Theater to see the August Wilson play “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.”

The production is about black America in the early 1900s, with residents of a boardinghouse recalling their migration from the sharecropping farms of the South to the industrialized North.
