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 - Kimberly Akimbo

What: Kimberly Akimbo 

 Where: Atlantic Theater Company
              336 W. 20th Street
              New York, NY 

Who: Recommended for Ages 12 and Up

When: Through January 15, 2022

Kimberly Akimbo is an unusual musical about an unusual girl. Kim suffers from an aging disease and although she is only a teenager she looks like a 72-year-old woman. The role is played by Tony-winning actress, Victoria Clark. She is terrific in the role and really does a  really convincing job of playing a teenage girl on the cusp of adulthood trying to find her place in the world. She is joined by a handful of other actors doing an equally impressive job playing an array of other unique and interesting characters including Steven Boyer as her alcoholic father, Alli Mauzey as her pregnant mother, and Bonnie Milligan as her unsavory aunt and more. There is a lot more to all of these characters than meets the eye. They may sound like your typical family but they are definitely not. The show has some nice but not very memorable music. It doesn't necessarily add that much to the show which was originally a play of the same name. Overall, it is a quirky and engaging show that is definitely worth seeing for the performances. 

And that's our view. For more about Kimberly Akimbo or to order tickets go to atlantictheater.org/production/kimberly-akimbo/
