Cirque du Soleil is known for being other-worldly and fantastical. The current production now in Baltimore, Crystal, does not disappoint and is a great choice for those who would like to introduce their children to the world of Cirque du Soleil. Crystal is a little different than other Cirque du Soleil shows. It is performed entirely on ice and rather than relying solely on live music, Crystal also features music from Beyoncé and U-2.

Chances are you are already familiar with the characters from Peanuts, but you’ve probably never seen them live on stage before.  Seeing Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Sally, and Schroeder come to life (and even give high-fives to the audience) is a treat for Peanuts fans new and old.

I don’t know any parent who doesn’t struggle with childcare at some point, whether it’s difficulty finding a babysitter, an unpredictable schedule for freelance work or a side hustle, a deadline that is looming, or just to enjoy some quiet time to catch up on a to-do list.  It’s not an easy problem to solve, but we are fortunate that a few area parents recognized this gap that needed to be filled and stepped up to provide co-working spaces with child

It’s not hard to relate. It’s the first day of Third Grade and Judy Moody has had the most boring summer... and has nothing to wear! She’s certain that all of the other kids will show up wearing shirts from their favorite summer destinations, but Judy has to settle for plain stripes.

If asked, I have no doubt that The Big Bad Wolf would wholeheartedly agree with Frank Harte’s statement that “Those in power write history, while those who suffer write the songs.”    Condemned by the history books of being guilty of property destruction by the Three Little Pigs and of attempted homicide by Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf uses song to tell his tale of suffering in the Puppet Co. Theatre’s production of Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.

I don’t use the terms “squeals of delight” or “laugh out loud” often, but there is no other way to describe the sounds of pure happiness and joy that filled the room full of toddlers watching Balloonacy.  Balloonacy is a one-man show expertly geared towards young children.  The performer is accompanied only by live music and a big red balloon which plays an important role in his solo birthday celebration.  There are no words in the show, which relies heavily on physical humor, general silliness, and the element of surprise throughout.

ARTECHOUSE is at it again this spring, this time with SAKURA YUME // Cherry Blossom Dream.  The cherry blossom is the quintessential icon of spring in the DC metro area, so what better way to celebrate the season, than will an interactive, visually-appealing exhibit?

This year marks 40 years of the Big Apple Circus and the show reflects 40 years of perfecting this amazing performance. My kids had never been to a circus before. I showed them the video on bigapplecircus.com and another teaser from YouTube. They could not wait to go.

In its latest production, Imagination Stage combines Mark Twain, Bollywood dancing, magical jewels, and the toppling of a dictatorship - and somehow makes that all work. It’s a nuanced tale that might be best for big kids and more mature little kids. But even younger theatergoers will appreciate the shoulder-shimmying singing and dancing.
