A Night Of Broadway In The Bronx

     Every school year, we get caught up in our hectic schedules throughout the week. No matter how much we try to slow things down a bit, it always seems like there is something going on and there never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done.     However, spending quality time together as a family is always number one on our list of priorities so we never stop trying to come up with creative ways to create those memories that will be cherished by all of us for a lifetime. That is why we were so excited to go see my nephew perform in Broadway Night at one of our local schools in the Bronx.    For the past few years he also attended high school in the Bronx and he participated in their drama club and performed at many of their shows! His last performance, as a Senior, was in his school's rendition of Grease in the Spring and we were so proud to see him on stage singing and acting.

Let The Soul Doctor Soothe Your Soul! @SoulDoctor #Review

*This post was written by me on behalf of Culture Mom Media LLC.  I received complimentary tickets to review the show.  All opinions are 100% mine.    My love affair with Broadway began years ago when I took my class on a trip to see Les Miserables.  Everything about seeing a show live on stage absolutely enchanted me, from the bright lights to the beautiful costumes and beyond.  Since then, anytime I have the opportunity to go see a play, it excites me.     However, when I received news that I would have the chance to see Soul Doctor on Broadway, I wondered if I would be able to connect to the subject matter since I am not an overly religious person and I assumed that the show would be laden with boring religious overtones and connotations that I would not be able to relate to.  Nothing could have been further from the truth...    Soul Doctor tells the story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach who is credited with being the father of popular Jewish music.  His ascent to this title … [Read more...]

Piggy Nation The Musical Live In New York City-A Review

*This sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Piggy Nation The Musical.  All opinions are 100% mine.    This past week, my family and I had the distinct pleasure of attending the show Piggy Nation The Musical at Jerry Orbach Theater at the Snapple Theater Center.  We were all very excited to see the live show, especially my seven-year old who loves to sing and enjoys any opportunity to see live singing.  As a matter of fact, he loves to sing so much that his music teacher approached us towards the end of the school year and suggested that we look into getting him a voice coach because he sings so beautifully.    Piggy Nation is an hour long musical that centers around a piglet named Sammy Hamhock who goes to work with his dad on Piggy Patrol.  His father hands out tickets to the citizens of their town for "Piggy behavior" or any behavior that is considered rude or inconsiderate of others.  As he spent the day with his father, Sammy realized that nobody's perfect and … [Read more...]
