I’m lucky. I have lived places where it’s relatively easy to experience and explore different forms of culture. When I was young, I lived in Connecticut, and I could take the train into New York to see plays or visit museums and the like. In Chicago, it’s much the same with quality theaters and museums and more all around us.
In fact, the wee ones’ school took them to see a Broadway in Chicago production of Peter Pan this winter, which was the first Broadway show I ever saw. They don’t make them all equal, however. Theater, like other arts, is a matter of perception. My favorite may be one that you hate. And the ones I don’t like? Well, they may be your favorites, and that’s fine because then we won’t be competing for tickets.
There are still so many more plays I want to see. In fact, I didn’t know Hairspray was a play until a couple weeks ago. I thought it was just a movie that came out recently. And I’ve never seen Oliver, unless you count the version my school did back in junior high. So it’s the perfect week for this #VlogMom prompt from Erica at A Parenting Production.
So tell me what I’m missing – or why I’m wrong in my opinions!
