I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

November 10th @ 1:30pm   Blown Away By Poetry  (Ages 5-12  )
After Wendy Windstorm sneezes the poems out of Poetsville, she must embark on a journey to recover the town's lost verses.  Along the way she learns abut rhyme, alliteration, and description from a series of helpful puppet poets.  For the grand finale, young people in the audience write their own original poems, which they are then invited to perform onstage. Blown Away returns to Urban Stages after touring to BAM and Poets House last spring!  

 November 17th @ 1:30pm   Lucy's Question (Ages 7 - 12)
A brand new musical from the creators of Blown Away By Poetry.  Ten year old Lucy is on a scientific quest to find the  answer to some very big questions.  Along the way she encounters some strange fungus, a talking planet, and a host of other boggling realities.  Join in on this puppet pursuit!  

For the past 20 years Urban Stages has toured family shows throughout the New York Public Library and Brooklyn Public Library systems, entertaining and educating hundreds of young people. 
Now celebrating their 30th Anniversary, Urban Stages has been producing New York and World premieres on their Off-Broadway main stage and for 20 years Urban Stages' Outreach Department has commissioned plays, workshops, and musicals to tour libraries, schools, and community centers throughout the greater New York area.
