Red Carpet Stokke Night Out

This past Monday night I attended a fabulous Stokke event. With a Red Carpet theme and in fine company with Stella & Dot Jewelry + Brahmin handbags, it was a great night!  I have been obsessed with Stokke products since the birth of my son. I have always been intrigued by the sleek design, modern look, and functionality of all their products. Apparently I am not the only one as the MoMa uses the infamous high chair “Tripp Trapp” in their cafes in place of generic chairs.  I was so happy to view the latest strollers from this Norwegian line with www.Momtrends.com at the super cool Glasshouse location in Chelsea.  The new Crusi and lightweight Scoot are 2 new fantastic editions to the Stokke Family.  Continue reading Red Carpet Stokke Night Out

Annie on Broadway – it’s a hard knock life

If you are a girl or boy older than 25, I’m sure you have seen (or as a brother) been forced to see Annie a million times. I remember being ever so slightly obsessed with Annie as a kid buying the red curly wig, wearing a locket, and parading around my house singing all the catchy songs. I used to watch Annie on my old school video recorder countless times!

When I heard Annie was playing on Broadway I could not wait to re-live the moments again. I remember how Sarah Jessica Parker played Annie on stage when she was young and was anxious to see what talent was found to capture this larger than life role!

Don’t Cry for Me Argentina – Evita on Broadway

Who was Eva Peron? A small town girl who became a Saint? For those who are curious and looking for a spectacular show, I have one word…EVITA!
Admittedly I was already obsessed and owned the soundtrack since college, so I was more than excited to go. Evita on Broadway is special for so many reasons…. 1) Ricky Martin, yes RICKY Martin! 2) Ricky Martin, oh wait I just said that 3) Yes…. Him again!
Ricky was cast perfect as the eyes and ears of the show … Narrating in song such a detailed story. The life of Eva Peron is brought to the stage by the fabulous Elena Roger who sings and dances her heart out night after night. Although, a tiny lady, she portrays this Argentine legend with such power in this amazing production. Everything about this show is top notch. The cast and ensemble are terrific too. This is a true Broadway performance with singing, dancing, and a little bit of everything.
Michael Cerveris who plays Eva’s husband is equally talented and delivers one strong number after another. An A list cast does not always deliver the best on stage, but in this case it does!
My only fault with this play was the end…. I needed a little more time to wrap up and mourn Eva’s passing but I do believe this is exactly as she would have liked it to end. Don’t cry for me Argentina.

Ring a Ding Ding is an exciting new children’s show on Broadway #newvic

I recently saw a fantastic Children’s show last week! Ring a Ding Ding is an exciting new show on Broadway straight from London.

The show starts in the great space, The New Victory Theater. The children are brought into a room in which they can design and color their own head bands to get ready for the show. The small cast of characters entertains the children and tries to get them acclimated for the show. There is a short discussion of the different elements and characters that will be seen in the show but nothing is too overwhelming. Keep I’m mind the proper age is 3-5, so it helps to be within this recommended guideline.
