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 - We Are the Tigers

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

What: We Are The Tigers

Where: Theater 80 St. Marks
             80 St. Marks Place
             New York, NY

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

When: Through April 17, 2019

Mom's view: We Are the Tigers is like a combination of Bring It On and Heathers. It is definitely not a show for young children, and there is some graphic violence. However, the show is by no means the equivalent of a slasher film on stage, and the violence does not run throughout the entire show.
It is more a show about a typical group of highschool girls trying to make it through the jungle that is adolescence. However, in this case, their world is literally like a jungle because it turns out there is a murderer among them, and they do not know when and if the murderer will strike again. While the show can be scary at times, it is not actually as scary as you might think, and it is actually full of quite a lot of humor.  The songs are really upbeat and fun,  with a few pretty ballads thrown in.  There is not a bad song in the whole score. Even if  when you walk out the door of the theater you do not remember the songs, you will want to listen to them again. All in all, if you can stand a small amount of  graphic violence, you should definitely go see this engrossing new show.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in Saturday for Still More Theater Saturday.
