One Chicago mom's attempt to keep an accurate log so her kids will have something helpful to show the therapists.
Our girls LOVE to sing Defying Gravity. I can't wait to take them to see the real thing. Excellent story. :-)
I knew I liked you, Mama Melch.
Before I got married and moved from SoCal, I used to go to dinner theater all the time. Loved it! I don't know why everything for me goes back to food :)
It's like that episode of Seinfeld when George combines all his favorite things. Dinner Theatre is a delightfully perfect example of that. And now I'm hungry. AGAIN.
We have taken the kids to see some classics, but I feel like once we did the big time of Shrek the Musical on Broadway it was tough to follow up...now we want the funny (and crude for mr fifteen)
I have not seen Shrek the Musical. I feel oddly okay with that.Let me know what crude shows you select!
There is nothing like introducing kids to the world of theatre. (sorry, English spelling)I'm lucky that I have a little man who enjoys plays and musicals, he's favourite being Little Shop Of Horrors, played constantly on a loop.Loved the article, it brought back memories of my first ever outing. :)
I had to google "theater" because I wanted to spell it "theatre." Damn British grandmother.Thanks for the kind words & so happy Spawn enjoys a good show, too!
One day I hope to go and take Victor to enjoy a couple of plays ... some day.. Glad you guys had fun and that sounds like the absolute bestest day ever.
It was grand. Thanks, Larissa!
Sounded like a delightful memory from your youth and a delightful memory for your kids' youth!! I think everyone should have the opportunity to see a play like this; it does change the perspective of watching things on TV or in a movie theater, singing and all! Sounds like a fun filled time!betyt
Thanks, Betty. Jack in particular was very enthralled. I think he's caught the theatre bug. Everyone should enjoy at least a few good shows before they die. The world would be a better place.
I love the theater. Sadly, we've usually left the kids with Grandma anytime we've gone (which isn't often). Maybe it's time to start bringing them along?
Tickets are expensive, I don't blame you. I have a friend who only does the first half (up to intermission) with her kids. It seems like a brilliant plan to me!
I haven't been to your blog (or many others) in forever and I miss you! It looks like I have a lot of catching up to do! :)
No worries, Hi-D. Don't feel the pressure to read the past. Be the ghost of Blogger Present!
