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...]

Arrgh, Mateys! Celebrate Winter Treasure Day With Jake and the Never Land Pirates on Disney Junior!

        Lately, all I have been hearing about from my five-year old is how much he loves this show Jake and the Never Land Pirates on the Disney Channel.  He told me that he loves that Jake and the Never Land Pirates have a secret hideout that the bad guys cannot get into because it is a secret.  My son thinks that Jake is an awesome character because he does "all kinds of cool stuff."      It wasn't until I had a chance to check it out for myself that I realized why my son loves it so much.  Besides the fact that the characters are entertaining and wholesome, I love that Disney has started to provide programming for younger children that is available throughout the day.  In my home, this is especially helpful during  those later afternoon/early evening hours when my son likes to unwind and watch a little television before dinner and after he has finished his homework from Pre-Kindergarten.  As a matter of fact, Disney is going to be launching a brand new standalone 24-hour … [Read more...]
