Freckleface Strawberry the Musical


I've written about my love of Broadway, particularly musicals, here, here, and here.

I never imagined that we would take Sebastian to the theatre at such a young age but when the opportunity presented itself to see Freckleface Strawberry The Musical, I knew we had to try, even if it meant chasing him up and down the aisles the entire time.

Based on the best-selling children's book by actress Julianne Moore, Freckleface Strawberry is the story of a red-headed, freckle-faced little girl determined to get rid of her freckles until she realizes that it's those very freckles that make her unique. A poignant message for children and adults alike.

It was a crapshoot bringing Biggie to a 70-minute show with no intermission but he continues to surprise us and was captivated throughout. He enjoyed every minute, bopping, clapping, and waving. We're in awe and very proud.

The show is jam-packed with singing and dancing, which kept the teeny tiny audience (made up mostly of girls, I observed) on the edge of their purple velvet seats.

The New World Stages' theater was intimate and comfortable. Children fidgeting and yelling out made us feel we were among friends and wouldn't be stoned if Biggie got out of hand.

It was a special family afternoon and I highly recommend it.
