Livin’ the Dream…

On March 12 we went for a big mid-week night out in Minneapolis!

First we ate at The Butcher and the Boar.  Oh my.

We were food drunk!

And the play was as fantastic as I remembered!

The simplicity makes it magical.

The story is beautiful.

The acting was superb.

The comedy was hilarious.

And there were tears.

It was beautiful.

Afterwards it was fun to Tweet with Troy – and interact with @StarcatcherBway as well!  So good.

Again… See it if you can – and if you can’t, watch this extended preview from the Broadway performance!

Peter and the Starcatcher

I feel so lucky that on March 12 I get to see Peter and the Starcatcher for the second time!

Yes it is, Brilliant!
Yes it is, Brilliant!

I first saw it in June 2012 when it was on Broadway in NYC.  It is not a musical, but a play filled with music, and it is magical and fantastic and simple.  Prior to seeing the show I had read two of the books in the series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson – “Peter and the Starcatchers” and “Peter and the Shadow Thieves.”  These books detail Peter Pan before he became Peter Pan, when he was simply, “BOY.”  This is an adaptation of these books and is brought to stage by Rick Elice.

Above is a clip from the original Broadway cast production.  I also feel so lucky that I was a stalker and had my photo taken with a few members of the cast!

What’s doubly exciting about seeing it a second time, is that there’s a Q&A afterwards with the cast!

The Orpheum in Minneapolis is a beautiful place to see a show, so I have no doubt that I’ll have another magical, fantastic experience with the touring version of “Peter and the Starcatcher” in 2014!

I’m sure I’ll blog later this week to tell you about it!
