Annie will soon be Returning to Broadway!

Maybe you live far away, or maybe real near by- but either way, you are definitely going to want to mark your calendars for the return of America’s sweetheart- Annie!

If you can believe it, as a lover of musicals and the theater in general- I have never seen Annie on Broadway. Well, maybe you can believe it. Annie opened in 1977, and closed it’s doors in 1983, which would have made me a tiny baby 🙂
Inspired by the famous comic strip Little Orphan Annie, this show will celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the show’s opening with a full revival.

In just about 270 days, Annie will be back on Broadway. You know I will be there- and so will my Little Man! He’s my Broadway Baby- and I hope that you bring your kids, too. It’s never too early to start exposing your children to the magic of the theater. (Start with the movie if they have never seen it- it’s a classic, they need to watch it anyway!) This feel-good show will be the one everyone is sure to be talking about.
In less then one year, ANNIE arrives on Broadway!? Check out the website, Facebook, and Twitter and keep yourself in the loop.

Fiddler on the Roof– an amazing show

Fiddler on the Roof was all that it promised to be. This classic piece of theater was a pleasure to watch and was thoroughly enjoyed. The music of Jerry Bock’s and Sheldon Harnick’s lyrics, along with Joseph Stein’s book (based on “Tevye and his Daughters” by Sholem Aleichem) are joined together to create one of the most enduring and well known works of theater to date.

The leading character, milkman Tevye, struggles with himself, talks to God, and tries to deal with the changes in the world around him. A kind-hearted man, he wants to do well by those around him and be an honest person. Living in the Russian village of Anatevka with his wife and five daughters, Tevye (please read the rest of my article below)

Godspell- Live on Broadway

There is nothing quite like a modern day Socrates checking their status and quoting great works of days of old- an amazing way to start the classic show with a cult following, “Godspell”. When the first notes of “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord” were sung- the audience was ready to dance along as well. I don’t think one can have a pulse and one want to dance when Godspell is preformed in front of you

Fiddler on the Roof- Live at the State Theater!

Tomorrow we will be at the show, and are excited to tell you all about it.

Fiddler on the Roof is slated to show at the State Theater in New Brunswick February 17-18. Fiddler on the Roof has been entertaining audiences from the youngest ticket holders upwards for generations. Few shows have captivated audiences like Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s Fiddler on the Roof. Even modern pop culture shows such at “The Wonder Pets” have referenced this Broadway standard, exposing even the youngest of children.
