Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway

Last week I attended a performance of Cinderella on Broadway with my husband and son.  There has been so much hype about this latest fairytale classic that I could not wait to see it!
Located at the Broadway Theater on Broadway and 53rd st., this Rodgers and Hammerstein’s translation of Cinderellaproved to be outstanding! Continue reading Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway

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 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.
