Posts are probably going to be a little slow coming up here, but we have been continuing with our Summer of Musicals. We’re finishing up with Hamilton on the 4th of July. I’m currently trying to find out how we can watch 1776, but according to Can I Stream It? it’s only available through services I don’t have, so we might just be watching youtube clips. There’s enough on youtube that I plan on 1776 being our musical this coming week, and after that I think we’ll do Newsies.
If you know me even a little bit through my blog, my Facebook page, or in real life, you know how important Matilda the Musical has been to me. I saw it on Broadway on my my first solo trip in twenty years (you can see it too, but hurry because it closes January 1, 2017!), and it was amazingly magical. We were lucky enough to have the touring company come here to the ‘Burgh, and I got to take Katie Grace to see it for her birthday AND went again with a friend. It might be coming to your city as well! You can check out the tour site here. All the children love the music and sing it pretty regularly, and we enjoy comparing and contrasting the Broadway and West End cast recordings. You know, as you do. So, it made a lot of sense that our very first musical of the summer was Matilda the Musical.
