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 - The Evolution of Mann

We were given free tickets to the Evolution of Mann for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: The Evolution of Mann

Where: Cell Theatre
             338 W. 23rd St.
             New York, NY

Who: Recommended for Ages 16 and above

When: Through October 27, 2018

Mom's view: The Evolution of Mann is a cute show about relationships. The upcoming wedding of Henry's ex makes him realize that he is ready to settle down and perhaps a little too anxious to do so whether he is with the right girl or not. The show is very funny and relatable. The songs which covers such topics as the little things that are so important to a relationship (The Unromantic Things)  and first dates (It's Only a First Date) are relatable as well particularly the ballads. The more upbeat numbers are amusing particularly She's My Wife and What's the Matter with Henry the latter of which in particular may just stick in your head even after you've seen the show. Max Crumm does a nice job in the role of the over eager Henry. Leslie Hiatt is fine as his roommate and best friend Gwen. However, Allie Trimm  is  the real standout of the small cast. She seamlessly shifts back and forth between several different characters at one point even changing from one character to another and back again within one song. The show is mostly funny and sweet with an unpredictable ending. It is not appropriate for young children, however, due to the subject matter which includes a lot of sexual innuedo. However, if you are looking  for an amusing show about the dating and mating game, you may enjoy this show.
