Mary's speech bubble says they're going to enjoy the theatrical experience, but her downcast expression indicates that maybe she'd rather be back at some wholesome Santa Royale entertainment - a cake contest, perhaps...
OK, I only checked one website, but the average price for a ticket to "Matilda" is $88.00, probably more if you buy at the last minute. So, it's a really generous gift, Olive will enjoy herself, and Mary sure as heck isn't on a senior citizen's budget. At least she's not paying for a good hotel.
It's probably too much to hope for that Ken Kensington is playing Miss Truchbull. At least Olive has changed her shirt. Mary's wearing the same duds - maybe she tapped into her clothing allowance to pay for the theater tickets.
Mary Worth's Matilda looks like a typist from 1962. Here is the real Matilda.https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiR8riAyszJAhXqqYMKHeIDDnQQjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.playbillstore.com%2Fmamubrpo.html&psig=AFQjCNGv7fpbHxHlugunxWzLRycIXkMQ8Q&ust=1449674894800610
I see everyone is wondering the same thing that occurred to me, just where is Mary getting all the dough to pay for this visit? Do I remember correctly that she was a teacher? Granted, Mary's not paying a couple hundred/night for a hotel room in NYC, but it's still a lot of money to pay for museums, Broadway shows, meals, taxis, subway passes, mementos etc. The cheapest I can get into the city is parking at Port Imperial in Weehawken, taking the ferry to Manhattan and hopping the free Port Authority bus whenever I can. Oh, and a whole lot of walking, yes, indeed.
