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 - Freestyle Love Supreme

What: Freestyle Love Supreme

Where: Booth Theatre
            222 W. 45th St.
            New York, NY

Who: Recommended for Ages 15 and Up

When:Through January 5, 2020

Me - Freestyle Love Supreme was a really fun show. It's an improv hip-hop rap show with a rotating cast that varies every night and includes a surprise guest star at each performance. The performers take suggestions from the audience and create freestyle raps for 80 minutes. The entire cast was incredibly talented from the singers to the piano players to the beat boxer. The show was partially created by Lyn Manuel Miranda, one of my favorite people in the universe. While this musical, does not follow the traditional format of a Broadway show, I would recommend it for anyone looking for an entertaining way to spend a night.

Mom - Freestyle Love Supreme is a show that was created by Lyn Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Venziale prior to both In the Heights and Hamilton. It originally played Off Broadway approximately 15 years ago. If you like unique and original shows and especially if you like improvised rap songs, you will really enjoy thix show. Every night a cast of talented performers make up  rap based songs, skits and scenarios based on audience suggestions. There is something really exciting about seeing a show where you never know exactly what you are going to see and hear on any given day. Even if you have seen the show before, if you go again it will be completely different. Even the cast changes from day to day and even from performance to performance on a two show day. In addition to the regular troop of performers who rotate in and out of the show, there are also guest performers. At least one guest performer appears in every show, and they include such well known faces as Lyn Manuel Miranda, Christoper Jackson, and James Monroe Iglehart, Broadway's original Genie, as well other performers who may not be as well known. The show is often hilariously funny, but at times it can be a little inappropriate so if you are offended by that kind of thing you might want to skip it or if for some reason you can't tolerate rap music. However, if you don't mind rap music and possibly a little bit of inappropriate humor and you want to experience something completely different, you will definitely want to see this show.

And that's our view.
