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 - Disenchanted

What: Disenchanted

Where: Available for Rental from Broadway HD 

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through July 31, 2020

Disenchanted is a show that turns the happily ever after myth on its head. Snow White, Cinderella and more familiar faces have their say about what it's really like to be a princess in this amusing story. It's not just sunshine and tiaras. It's being at the beck and call of a prince and not being paid for the sale of your likeness on everything from dinnerware to underwear and more as told in a series of campy songs. Definitely not a show for the little ones, but teenagers may enjoy it. This socially distanced production was produced by the Boulder Dinner Theater the performers are generally well-spaced apart and masks are worn when they and/or crew members are in close quarters. There are several occasions when cast members are not wearing a mask when they probably should be, however, and/or when actors hold hands so the production was perhaps not quite as careful as it could have been. This is not a problem for those of us sitting comfortably in our homes and watching though. Although the show is not up to the caliber of the Off-Broadway version of the show which we reviewed a few years ago, on the whole, it's a pleasant diversion.

And that's Mom's view.

For more information about renting the Boulder Dinner Theater's version of Disenchanted today or tomorrow or the High School edition of the show to be presented by Footlights Performing Arts on August 8 or 9, visit www.broadwayondemand.com/searchs?q=disench.
