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 - An Enchanted April

We were given complimentary tickets to An Enchanted April for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: An Enchanted April

Where: Theatre Row - Theatre Two
             410 W. 42nd St.
             New York, NY

Who:Recommended for Ages 13 and Up

When: Through November 16, 2019

Me - An Enchanted April was a good show. It was about these people who put their money together to be able to afford this vacation place in Italy. The story was fascinating. I had never seen or heard of the book and/or movie it was based on before, but I liked it. Some parts of the plot were kind of predictable but others were more surprising. The characters were interesting and unique. The songs were nice but I don't remember them. They used umbrellas to display projections that set the scene. That was very original and cool. It definitely was an enjoyable show, and you should see it before it closes.

Mom - An Enchanted April is a charming new musical not based on the 1991 movie but instead harkening back to the original source material Elizabeth Arnim's 1922 book, The Enchanted April. Its story of people unhappy with their lives and wanting to get away from it all for a while really resonates with a lot of people these days. Of course, in real life things are not always so easy to resolve and when you come back you merely return to the problems you left. Still, even if you can't so easily solve your own problems you can at least go for a little while and watch other people hopefully solve theirs which is one of the things that makes a show like this so appealing.  In this case you feel as if you have taken a trip to Italy too for a little while, and the beautiful set and costumes only add to that illusion. However, if you want to partake in this theatrical journey, you better hurry as the show is only open through this Saturday November 17.

And that's our view. For more information or to purchase tickets visit

Tune in Saturday for a Saturday Special.
