Kid’s Theater Review: Pasta! A Pop Ups Puppet Musical

Half rock show, half puppet show, half off-Broadway musical.  PASTA! A Pops Ups Puppet Musical is WAY more than the sum of it’s outrageously fun parts. OWTK caught the end of PASTA’s last run at the Soho Playhouse, in late-December ’10.  What we witnessed was quite possibly the greatest live […]

Kid’s Theater Review: The Borrowers @ The Arden

In my feeble attempts to pen a children’s book all my own, I’ve been told that dream sequences, flashbacks and other mind-bending trickeration have little place in media for pre-readers.  Seems the minds of those tiny people cannot process that level of detail. I don’t deny these assertions.  They’re probably […]

Previewing The Arden Theatre’s ’10-’11 Kid’s Series

**ATTN: PHILLY-AREA READERS** There are many things I look forward to experiencing in early-September; not sweating through 2 t-shirts a day, as one example.  But other pleasures also fall into place in the Fall.  Things like the return of pro & college football, NCAA basketball, pumpkin picking, scaring little children, […]

Kid’s Theater Review: John Tartaglia’s ImaginOcean

It took all of 15-seconds for the Bear to squeal “This is so cool!”. And you know what?  She nailed it, the black light puppet musical ImaginOcean is cool, thanks mostly to the 1/2 dozen, spirited show tunes (the soapy bubbles at the start and finish don’t hurt either).  She […]

Kid’s Theater Review: If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

The only thing bigger than the slightly mind altering, larger-than-life set were the laughs of the children in the crowd. The Arden Theatre’s If You Give a Mouse a Cookie soars beyond Laura Numeroff’s book of the same name.  The kid on the page serves as a sort of prop […]

Peter Pan at The Arden – Kid’s Theater Review

At it’s core, The Arden’s Peter Pan is an elaborate game of playing house.   Just below the surface though, and something especially noticeable in their miraculous production of Douglas Irving’s adaption, are larger truths about what it means to be young, joyful and free – three things best experienced […]
