In a time when it’s tough to find a child not carrying around some type of electrical 
device to play with. it was wonderful to stumble upon this Off  Broadway musical 
Piggy Nation: A Day At Work With Dad.
Piggy Nation, based on the book, both written by Richard Rosser entertained the audience filled with 
parents, grandparents and children. This musical features an original score filled with rock, blues, rap and
gospel influences that keeps the audience engaged throughout the musical.
Piggy Nation: A Day At Work With Dad lets your imagination take the lead as the 
actors gone animals lead us through a story that teaches children about values and helps 
parents and adults to see the importance of good role models. Lessons of thoughtfulness, 
honesty and courtesy are all highlighted during this a little over an hour musical.
 Although props are few, talent is abundant!
We had the amazing experience of meeting up with author, Richard Rosser, who could not have been 
any nicer. He spent time chatting with everyone and took the time to preview the book with my daughter before showtime. My son had a chance to interview him on his vlog: TheKingsVlogs

Freckleface Strawberry The Musical

Freckleface Strawberry The Musical!

Recently, my family and I went to see Freckleface Strawberry The Musical at New World Stages. The musical is based on the book by Julianne Moore. I really did not know what to expect. I have been to many Broadway shows and my children have been to a few, but this was our first time to New World Stages. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see how many theaters were housed there. We made our way down to Freckleface Strawberry and got seated. The theater was medium sized, so every seat was a good one. We were seated in the back and Em could see the entire show easily. The musical was filled with plenty of fun and quite a few “entertaining” songs, not to mention “non-stop” jokes!

Seeing that the musical lasts about one hour and is 3 scenes long, it was very easy for my little one to keep focused and “in” the fun! My other children enjoyed it also. There was enough entertainment to keep everyone smiling and laughing throughout the show. One drawback- be ready to sing “Little Freckeface Strawberry” over and over during the days following this show!
