For New Yorkers who've been feeling a little blue lately, this news should put you back in the pink: Pinkalicious, the musical about a girl (and a boy and a mom and a dad) who love the color pink (and then some) has returned to the Upper West Side, with performances every Saturday at 3:30 pm starting on September 28 through November 9 at the Vital Theater located at 2162 Broadway, 4th floor at West 76th Street.
One of the best things about all shows staged by the Vital Theater Company is that they are truly shows geared towards kids (read our review of their Fancy Nancy: The Musical, here). So many plays that are ostensibly for the younger set are actually filled with humor meant to crack up adults, not children, and actors who mug and camp it up to get laughs, rather than truly committing to their imaginary, juvenile world.
With the Vital Theater Company's Pinkalicious: The Musical, all the roles are played by adults, but they are performed sincerely and seriously (because children take their actions, problems and set-backs very seriously, no matter how funny and trivial they may seem to adults), with humor that's appropriate for ages two and up (but won't bore the moms and dads), audience participation, sight gags, a bouncy score and colorful sets and costumes that make it clear where you are and who the actors are supposed to be, even when a pair of butterflies, a bee and a bird temporarily prove to be the same size as the pink protagonist.
Tickets are $39.50 for regular seats and $59.50 for premium seats, but one lucky NY Frugal Family reader can win a FREE Family 4-pack!
