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 - My Real Mother

We were given free tickets to My Real Mother for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: My Real Mother

Where: Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
            480 W. 42nd St.
            New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: This show was part of the 2019 New York Musical Festival

Me - My Real Mother was an extremely good show. It is about a girl who was adopted and her adoptive mother and birth mother become friends. This was a very heartwarming show. It made me want to cry in a good way. Ever moment was really touching. The music was really good too. It really fit the mood of the show.  I don't remember any of the particular songs, but I would like to listen to them again. I could really relate to the characters, they were really believable. Everyone should see this show, if they ever have the opportunity. It was definitely my favorite of this year's New York Musical Festival shows that I saw.

Mom - My  Real Mother is a truly stirring musical . It is the story of three woman and the open adoption that binds them. Alex is the adoptee, Sara is her birth mother, and Alaina is her adoptive mother. The relationship that develops between the two mothers over the course of the show is incredibly moving. It is a model for the way relationships between people can be but rarely are. There are so many moments in this musical that will make you want to cry. Every song in the show is beautiful and meaningful  as well and will touch your heart. It is just an incredibly wonderful show that will stay with you long after you've seen it.

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