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

More Theater Monday - The Big Bang Theory Parody

We were given free tickets to The Big Bang Theory Parody for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: The Big Bang Theory Parody

Where: The Theater Center
             1627 Broadway
              New York, NY

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

Me & Mom - The Big Bang Theory Parody  is a musical based on the popular TV show that is in currently in the midst of its final season. John McGowan as Sheldon Cooper is clearly the highlight of this show. He captures the essence of Sheldon with extreme accuracy. The rest of the cast 's portrayals of the characters are not as strong. Their singing voices are excellent, however. although the songs were not at all memorable. There are familiar catch phrases and running gags from the TV show in this show but not enough of them especially considering the show has been on for 12 seasons. The overall plot is weak and does not draw enough from the show. It is great to see  appearances from a bunch of familiar characters from the show's long run including many of the characters' mothers, Leslie Winkle, Stuart and more but most of these appearances don't seem to serve much purpose. Over all, John McGowan is definitely the main reason to see this show.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
