Hamilton: A Work of Art

Husband and I are both big theater fans, like really big. We have been fortunate enough to see numerous Broadway and off-Broadway shows, so many that we’ve lost count. It’s no surprise that when Hamilton: An American Musical first started picking up speed, it caught our attention. I remember asking Husband, what this Hamilton play was […]

If/Then – The Musical That You Likely Know Nothing About

Once again, I have had the pleasure of seeing yet another Broadway performance at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.  I’ve seen so many Broadway shows in the last 5 years, yet it is never enough. They just keep popping up with more fabulous musicals (and plays) that I MUST see. If/Then is a musical that, […]

The Depressing Story of the Bridges of Madison County

    It’s been a minute since I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing one of TPAC’s phenomenal Broadway shows, or heck review or write about ANYTHING.

I saw it on Broadway in New York when it opened and actually sat right behind Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein (the creators of the musical).It was a magical night of drag queens, glitter, shoes, high kicks and British accents. Can  you ask for more? […]

Luna's First Musical and a Review of Rudolph

Last night, I was able to take Luna to her very first musical. For the first time, Luna was invited to review a show with me at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. We dressed up (coordinating, obviously), packed many baby emergencies in the diaper bag and even watched a TV version of the musical we […]

Yay for New Traditions and Discounts!

Now that December has arrived so has the start of our many holiday traditions. I have always been big on celebrating Christmas and creating new traditions while continuing old ones, but it takes on a whole new level of festiveness now that we have Luna. Two days into December and we have already pulled out the decorations, listened […]
