Mean Girls On Broadway- A NYC Must Do!

Mean Girls On Broadway- A NYC Must Do!

This post is made possible by support from Mean Girls on Broadway. All opinions are my own. 

Everyone that knows me, knows that I love going to Broadway shows. I have seen my fair share of them throughout the years and at this point I really don’t just go to any show, it has to be on my “Want to see it list”. Currently on Broadway I have about four more shows I’d love to get in before the end of the year and Mean Girls just happened to be one of them. Truth be told, Mean Girls on Broadway was originally not on my list. I have never seen the movie and I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. I’ve never been a fan of any type of mean girls especially after all my years as a classroom teacher. But, some of my friends assured me that I definitely should see it and I’m so glad I took their advice.If you already have seen the movie, then you are already a fan, I’m sure. The thing I loved most about Mean Girls on Broadway was it made me laugh. In fact, it made the entire audience laugh. In my opinion that is something lacking in the world today. You used to see groups of people sitting and laughing, now their heads are down and they are so sidetracked that it seems the laughing has gone to the wayside. Not to worry, you can get your laughing out freely from any seat in the Mean Girls house! I also loved that Mean Girls had a definite message, Don’t Be Mean! It’s a message that spans the wings of our lifetime. Little kids- Don’t be mean! Teens- Don’t be mean! Adults- Don’t be mean! Mean Girls on Broadway is a fun way to get the message out there. Stop the bullying and the hated and find another way. The show was hilarious and a pure pleasure to watch. I’m already planning to head back to see it with Emm for a Mother Daughter day out! The audience had quite a few mother daughter teams, along with girls night out and date nights! This show is for everyone to enjoy. Who doesn’t want to laugh?I

So what’ the show all about? The main character, Cady and her parents have made a huge move to the city from Kenya! Cady, who’s best friends were from the savanna soon realizes that they have a lot in common with the new friends she is about to make. Do her new classmates accept her? NO!  But Cady is ready to accept the challenge of friendship at the High School and is excited at the thought of making new friends. Sadly, no one seems to like her or even know she is around.  Enter- Janis and Damian who decide to help Cady as she tries to find her social group she fits into best. Janis and Damian describe the clique of high school social royalty dubbed “the Plastics.” The trio is led by Regina George, the “Queen Bee”; Gretchen Wieners, Regina’s nervous, eager-to-please second-in-command; and Karen Smith, the stereotypical dumb blonde. To everyone’s surprise, Regina and her fellow Plastics decide that the new girl Cady will eat lunch with them for the rest of the week. Cady can’t wait to tell  Damian and Janis about the invite. Janis asks Cady to sit with them and give her all the inside scoop about the group. This is where the fun begins and where I will stop. I would not have wanted to know more than this going into the show. Enjoy! Go! It’s a great show. Now I can’t wait to see the movie.

Giveaway Disney’s Aladdin (Live Action) AND (Animated)

Giveaway Disney’s Aladdin Live Action AND Disney’s Aladdin Animated!

If there is one Disney movie I absolutely love it is Disney’s Aladdin! When I heard it was going to be made into a Live Action movie I kind of just shrugged it off and figured it would never live up to the original animated Aladdin. I was SO wrong! Our family of five packed into the theater opening night with a handful of doubts, yet we had to see it on the big screen. As soon as the movie began I knew I was completely off the mark and that it was going to be incredible. I can say with all honesty that I loved the live action Aladdin movie. It lived up for me in every single way. So now that it’s heading to the blu ray release there is only one thing to do, we will be watching Aladdin again and again! The live action as well as the original animated are both up there in my top Disney movies. Thanks for getting this one right, Disney! 

So here is the great news! Now you can own BOTH movies on bluray! They will both release on September 10th, 2019. We have partnered with Disney Pictures to have one lucky winner win BOTH the Live and Animated version! Enter on the rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends September 10th at 11:59pm. Winner contacted soonafter. (USA/18+).

Embark on a magic carpet ride with the entire family when Disney’s original animated classic “Aladdin” soars into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, granting nonstop laughs, action-packed adventure and Academy Award®–winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score) for the first time in 4K Ultra HD. The Signature Collection Edition of “Aladdin” takes flight two weeks early in 4K Ultra HD, Digital in HD and Movies Anywhere now and lands on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Sept. 10 — with a brand-new sing-along version; all-new bonus features, including original cast recordings; and classic bonus material. The arrival coincides with the in-home release of 2019’s live-action film adaptation “Aladdin,” granting fans everywhere the opportunity to own both magical movies.  The Signature Collection Edition invites every member of the family to join Genie, Aladdin and Jasmine to belt out the unforgettable songs from “Aladdin” — such as “A Whole New World,” “Friend Like Me” and “Prince Ali” — through a new sing-along version. Other fresh features include a walk down memory lane with Scott Weinger (speaking voice of Aladdin) as he reflects on his personal journey portraying the diamond in the rough and meeting with the original cast and filmmakers, and one jump into the recording booth during the original recording sessions. Digital exclusive features legendary animator Eric Goldberg reminiscing about drawing Genie. Also included are hours of classic bonus gems, from hilarious outtakes with the legendary Robin Williams (voice of Genie) to an in-depth discussion with directors John Musker and Ron Clements.

Disney’s tale of the lovable “street rat,” Aladdin, self determined Princess Jasmine and the all-powerful Genie has remained a family favorite for over a quarter of a century. It all began with the animated classic “Aladdin,” the highest-grossing film of 1992 and a two-time Academy Award®–winner, and continued with the hit Broadway musical “Aladdin” and 2019’s live-action film adaptation “Aladdin,” directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine.  Families can decide how, when and where they wish to enjoy “Aladdin” in their households. The film arrives two weeks early on Digital 4K Ultra HD and HD with an exclusive extra — and a Digital bundle doubles the fun with both the Walt Disney Signature Collection Edition and this year’s thrilling, live-action adventure “Aladdin.” A physical copy of the film will be released as a 4K Ultra HD (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code) and a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Code).
