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

Alice Live and Alice in Wonderland

Meryl Streep as Alice

Kate Burton as Alice
Me - I liked that Alice Live had a lot of interesting stuff about different versions of Alice in Wonderland from over the years. Also, they had some Alice in Wonderland books and a little spot where you could sit and read them. Unfortunately, when we were there, some people were hogging the books and the place to read them. There was also a place where you could put on headphones, and you could listen to different versions of Alice in Wonderland or different songs from Alice in Wonderland. They had volume adjustments on the headphones so you could listen as loud or soft as you want. They had pictures of different people who have played Alice over the years. Some of the Alices looked way to old to have played Alice. My favorite was Kate Burton who played Alice in 1982. It was really cool to look at the way that all the characters have changed over the years in the different versions. The pictures from the original version of the book were kind of creepy because Alice's neck was way too long. I never knew that there were Alice in Wonderland ballets and puppet shows and things. All in all, it was a really fun exhibit, and you should go to it.*

We were given free tickets to Literally Alive Theatre's Alice in Wonderland for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Me - Literally Alive's Alice in Wonderland, wow! This production was good. Th show went by so quickly. The best part, as always, was Eric Fletcher. In this show, he played the Queen of Hearts. He was funny. The songs were decent but I liked the songs in some of Literally Alive Theatre's other shows better. My favorite song from any of their shows is Misunderstood from their production of The Little Mermaid. The sets in Alice in Wonderland were good. They usually are. I liked the way they did the Cheshire Cats smile  in this show. The costumes were good too.T he costumes at Literally Alive Theatre are always good. After the show, we got to interview Eric Fletcher. He was really nice. Overall,  I wouldn't say this was my favorite show I ever saw at Literally Alive Theatre, however, I enjoyed. It is always fun to see one of their productions. I can never wait to see what their next show will be. This time I already know their next show will be Beauty and the Beast. I'm am excited to see what they are going to do with that.

And that's our view. What is your favorite version of Alice in Wonderland?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
