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

Theater Thursday - Mother Africa: My Home

We were given free tickets to Mother Africa: My Home for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: Mother Africa: My Home

             209 W. 42nd St.
             New York, NY

Who: 5 and up

When: Now through January 1
Me - Mother Africa: My Home is like a circus and a concert and a dance show in one. However, they spoke and sang in French. I didn't understand because I don't speak French. Most of the show was circus acts and dancing though so it didn't matter if you could understand. I liked the show. One of my favorite parts of the show were when this guy rode on a little tiny motorcycle. There was a woman who did a hula hoop act. It reminded me of something I saw at the Big Apple Circus. There was a guy that did tricks on a ladder. It was very cool! There was a man and a woman who did juggling together which was also very cool! There was a woman who juggled with her feet. There was a guy who was juggling this boy. It was fascinating. There was a man who spun all these baskets on his arms and legs and things. That was interesting. There was a lot of dancing so if you enjoy dancing you'll like this show. All in all, it was a good show, and I would really recommend you go.
Mom - Mother Africa: My Home is presented by Circus Der Sinne. Circus Der Sinne literally translates to Circus of the Senses, and this Circus will certainly fill your senses with sounds, sights and colors galore. The show is much more than just a circus. It is a song, and dance and circus extravaganza. You won't understand most of the singing if you don't speak French, but that won't take away from your enjoyment of the show. The dancing and circus acts are both wonderful. Even the circus acts that you may have seen before are taken to a whole other level here. From a man and woman who don't just juggle but juggle  together to a women who juggles a table with her feet to a man who does a whole act balancing on a ladder and more, you will probably see something you have never seen before in this show. This a great family friendly event that Parents and children alike will both enjoy.  For more information or to purchase tickets go to http://www.newvictory.org/Show-Detail?ProductionId=7586.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday.
