We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

More Theater Monday* - Monsoon Season

We were given complimentary tickets to Monsoon Season for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: Monsoon Season

Where: Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
             224 Waverly Place
             New York, NY

Who: Recommended for Ages 15 and Up

When: Through November 17




Mom's view: Monsoon Season is a he said/she said story of a couple who have recently split up. The beginning part of the story is told from Danny's point of view. The latter part of the story is told from Julia's point of view. The gist of the story is very relatable to anyone who has kids and who has gone through a breakup  with their child (or children's) other parent. Then, this story takes a wildly dark turn. Ultimately, this story is a romance because these two damaged people clearly belong together. Yet, it is not a sickening overly sweet and sappy romance. It is an anti-romantic romance; a romance for people who hate romance. If you like your shows (and/or your romances)  unpredictable and with a dark and demented side, you will love this show.





And that's Mom's view.
