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 - God Save Queen Pam

We were given free tickets to God Save Queen Pam for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What:  God Save Queen Pam

Who: Recommended for Ages 16 and Up

When: Through July 29, 2018

Me - God Save Queen Pam was entertaining.  It was about an American woman who found out she is heir to the British throne.  The plot was interesting. It was totally different than any other show I have seen before.  It was a really good idea for a show. The songs were good too, a couple of them even stuck in my head after we saw the show. The actors were really talented. The characters were fascinating. This is a show that is worth seeing if you are interested in a a different kind of mostly fun upbeat musical.

Mom - God Save Queen Pam is the story of an American bartender who suddenly discovers that she is the sole remaining heir to the British throne. Upon hearing the premise and seeing the poster, I was expecting this show to be more of a farce. However, I am happy to say that is not. While it is a funny show. It is not over the top. Pam is not an Eliza Doolittle waiting to be turned into a proper English lady. She is more of an ordinary woman thrown into extraordinary circumstances. This makes the show more believable and relatable. The show has a good story and some decent songs especially the catchy, Living the Dream. Erin Quinlan who also wrote the book of the show and composed and wrote the lyrics for the songs does a nice job in her starring role as Pam imbuing the part with an innate likeability and earnestness even when she is behaving less than admirably. It is not a one woman show, however, and one or two of the other characters does seem a bit underdeveloped. However, all in all it is a good entertaining show that seems very timely in light of the fact that in actuality an American  actress recently married the Prince of England.
