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 - How to Eat Like a Child

We were given complimentary tickets to How to Eat Like A Child for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

What: How to Eat Like a Child

             15 W. 28th St..
             New York, NY

Who: Ages 4 and up

When: Through March 8, 2020

Me - How to Eat Like a Child was a good show. It didn't really have a story. There weren't even any character names. In the playbill, they just listed the name of the kids in the show.  The show was just made up of little skits. They were about different things like how to eat to like a child and how to deal with different situations the way a kid would. It was a cute show, but generally I prefer a show with a plot. Some of the show was funny. The funny parts were the best parts. The acting and singing were good. The set was nice. It was made up of objects that looked like giant foods. On the whole, it was an amusing show.

Mom - How to Eat Like a Child, the latest offering from the talented youth ensemble of TADA Youth Theater, is based on a 1981 television musical special based on a book of the same name by Delia Ephron. That version starred Dick Van Dyke accompanied by a troop of 15 children. The show is full of fun skits and songs that present a child's view of the world. There are segments not only on how to eat like a child, but on how to annoy your sister, how not to go to sleep and more. The show is great for limited attention spans since the segments are very short and the whole show is barely an hour long. The acting, singing and dancing are all good. Even the set is fun. It is made up of giant colorful foods, a cherry covered slide, a swinging gate that resembles a pack of french fries, a donut window, and more. All in all, the show is just a lark from beginning to end.

And that's our view. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.tadatheater.com/how-to-eat-like-a-child-and-other-lessons-in-not-being-a-grown-up.
