We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Theater Thursday - Little Girl Blue - The Nina Simone Musical

We were given free tickets to Little Girl Blue - The Nina Simone Musical for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: Little Girl Blue - The Nina Simone Musical

Where: George Street Playhouse
             103 College Farm Rd.
              New Brunswick, NJ

Who: Recommended for Ages 13 and Up Due to Subject Matter

When: Through February 24, 2019

Mom - Although there is some interaction between  Laoina Michelle as Nina Simone and the real band members who portray her band members in Little Girl Blue - The Nina Simone Musical, basically the show is a one woman tour de force. Ms. Michelle not only stars in the musical but she wrote it as well. As an actress, she is fierce as evidentally was the woman she is portraying.  The songs are an eclectic mix some by Ms. Simone and some by other writers. If you grew up in the 60s or 70s, you are sure to recognize at least some of them. Ms. Michelle does a good  job with the songs, and her voice is pretty. The show seems a little long at times especially for a one woman show. It runs just over 2 hours. However, over all it is an interesting portrait of a fascinating woman.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in Saturday for a Saturday special.
