Unique and Unforgettable, exactly my thoughts. It's always such a great blessing being able to take Miguel to watch a Broadway show and seriously one of the reasons I love NYC. The broadway shows always make for a great night or family event.
Yesterday, we got to see Tuck Everlasting the musical thanks to The Moms.
Miguel was especially excited because it was one of the books he read in elementary school, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt.
Winnie Foster runs away from home because she is tired of being bored and wants to have a little more fun, that's when she meets Tuck and his family. After finding out their secret , she is given the chance to live forever like them or to live a normal life. What does Winnie choose?
Miguel was excited to see some of his favorite characters come to life and in a broadway show nonetheless.
The lights went off and all I remember was it being over way too fast. Never have I wanted to get up and dance so bad. All of the songs were great and the voices were amazing. I was in awe the entire time, the cast was amazing and just out of this world. Miguel did not speak to me during the entire show, only during half time did I see him breath again - ha! He was that astonished and in to the show.
He loved, loved, loved seeing the characters come to life and comparing it to the book, yes it was a little bit different but theres only so much that can be fit into a broadway show. Miguel still loved it and said that it was pretty close to the book.
From youngest to oldest, the cast of Tuck Everlasting was amazing, so much talent. It seriously has to be one of the best family broadway shows. They made me cry, laugh and just fall in love with Broadway all over again. Miguel and I give it 5 thumbs up!
It also made me think about choosing to live forever or living a normal life.
Maybe if I could live forever with all of my loved ones.
What would you choose?
Live forever or to live a normal life?
