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 - I Spy A Spy

We were given free tickets to I Spy A Spy for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are own.

What: I Spy A Spy

Where: Theatre at St. Clements
             423 W. 46th St.
             New York, NY

Who: Recommended for Ages 13 and Up

When: Through August 10, 2019

Me - I Spy A Spy was a very original show. I have never seen anything like it. It was about spies, but to say more would be to give away too much of the plot. I didn't really know what to expect from the show, but I really enjoyed it. There was a lot of humor in it. The songs were good too. Although, I don't remember most of them a line from the song I Spy A Spy keeps running though my head. Although the romantic aspects of the story were somewhat predictable, the rest of the show was not. I never knew what was going to happen next or how it was going to end. That made the show more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the show is going to be ending soon so I would recommend hurrying and seeing it before it closes on August 10, 2019.

Mom - I Spy A Spy is a unique and fun show. It is about spies in New York City. It is lighthearted comedy with a serious center It has a lot to say about prejudices, and the way we treat other people who are not like us. However, it does so in the form of a fun and entertaining musical that makes the message even more potent. The characters in the musical are interesting and original and for the most part very funny. In fact, the show is full of humor which makes it even more fun. The songs are good. Emma Degerstedt as the Russian spy Alina Orlova has a particularly beautiful voice. Her duet with Jose, You Will See Me, is a particular highlight and a very meaningful song. This is definitely a show worth seeing while you still can.

And that's our view. Due to circumstances beyond our control there will be no Sunday Scoop this week. Tune in Monday for More Theater Monday.
