Rain, rain, go away! While it has not seemed like summer, it has definitely been theatre weather. All the tourists come to the theatre when the clouds roll in. I am hoping that there has been enough sunny weather for them to have a great time at the park and all of the other sites of Chicago and then on to the theatre for a real memorable experience: JERSEY BOYS & SPRING AWAKENING.
Yes, SPRING AWAKENING opens tomorrow night. I have to admit this is one of my favorite shows. It is so moving and well done – and gorgeously performed by talented young people who will be lighting up the stage for years to come. I am sure that some might be shocked by my choice but I think that it is the perfect musical to share with your progressive family. I know that my college age kids all loved it and it reinvigorated their love of theatre. And as a Mom that made me happy. This isn’t the show for the younger siblings but it is the show that will make you a hero with your 20 something children. It is simply breathtaking.
