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

Still More Theater Saturday - Random Acts

We were given free tickets to Random Acts for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: Random Acts

Where: Barrow Group Theatre
             312 W. 36th St.
             New York, NY

Who: Ages 13 and Up Due to Subject Matter

When: Through March 2

Mom's view: Random Acts is a one woman show written and performed by Renata Hinrich's rearding her experiences with racism growing up in the southside of chicago in the 1960s. It was a time when a friendly little white girl like Ms. Hinrichs couldn't even talk to a black girl in her class without putting herself in danger. It is also the story of the stranger who stepped into help Ms Hinrich's when she really needed it despite the color barrier, an act which had a profounf affect on Ms. Hinrich's life. The show is very engrossing and moves along rather quickly for a one woman show. Ms. Hinrich's does a terrific job of inhabiting all of the characters in her story. Even now when there is still so much racism in the world, her story really hits a nerve and especially when you walk out of the theater and see pictures from Ms. Hinrich's childhood making it all even more raw and real.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for this week's Sunday Scoop.
