tuckeblstbanner-300x217The reviews for TUCK EVERLASTING are in, and the critics are split…it turn out to be magical Broadway shows. I personally loved it, theater to me is pure relaxation and fun.  Though there are moments of brilliance in the music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw, the heavy-handed book offers more challenges than rewards. The plot is satisfyingly streamlined, for all audiences of all ages. The acting is commendable overall, but the highlight of the show is Terrence Mann as The Man in the Yellow Suit, portrayed as a delightful carnival barker.  The costumes were beautiful. The singing and dancing magical. I loved this play, it’s a reminder to enjoy every stage of your life and truly I would not want to live forever, nor should we, but go to relive one of your favorite childhood stories.
