I caught the opening night performance of this new show at the Colonial Theatre tonight. The 75-minute performance (no intermission) completely entertained the children in the audience, who laughed hysterically at the letter carrier and clapped their hands and tapped their feet to the musical numbers.
I wasn't as impressed with the costume design. (Don't expect Lion King type tricks -- you can tell Stanley is not flat -- but the children in the audience, ranging from age 3-10, didn't seem to care!)
Below are a few photos from tonight's performance.
If you child is a fan of the book, the stage production is worth the money!
Tickets are still available for tomorrow and Sunday's shows. There is a special 5 p.m. show tomorrow (Saturday) for Girl Scouts, too!
