Review and Giveaway: The Heidi Chronicles on Broadway


Let me preface this review by saying I'm a huge Wendy Wasserstein fan. I was introduced to her plays as a high-school student studying drama in a performing arts school. Her plays resonated with me instantly - as a theater lover, as a feminist, as someone looking through her choices in life as a young woman. I heard her speak several times before she passed away – once in college and once at a conference right before when I had my first child. I’ve read all her plays, read her biography and wish more than anything, that she was still here on this earth Read More


Review: A Happy End at the Abingdon Theatre


  When I got the invite to A HAPPY END, a play by Iddo Netanyaho, a physician and playwright who happens to be the Israeli Prime Minister's brother, I accepted immediately. I tend to gravitate toward Holocaust themed films, plays and TV shows. In 2015, I feel it is moe important than ever to be reminded what happened, as Anti-Semitism is taking hold in places not so very far away, like in Paris and other parts of Europe. The play is appearing at the Abingdon Theatre, in an off-Broadway run through March, and is about a Jewish family in Berlin Read More


Review: Lincoln Center Theater’s The Oldest Boy by Sara Ruhl


THE OLDEST BOY resonated with me on so many levels - as a mother, as a spiritual human being, as one who is curious about other cultures, as a theater lover who loves plays that revolve around women characters. Over the course of two hours during this new show by Sara Ruhl, I was introduced to a family torn apart by the husband's culture after two Buddhist monks appear at the door one day to declare a high-ranking lama, or high Buddhist teacher, has been reincarnated in the body of their son, Tenzin. The monks want permission to take him to a Read More

Venus in Fur

"A play so good it hurts.  90 minutes of good, kinky fun."  - The New York Times Clearly, this giveaway is not for kids.  Yes, a lot of people (particularly publicists) seem to think as The Culture Mom, I'm all about the kids. They refer to me as "mommy blogger" and send me information about everything kid-related.  Little do they realize that I am SO much more than that.  I love a good night out with my husband or my girl-friends, sinking my teeth into a show about and only for adults. And VENUS IN FUR by David Ives is just that.  Now, I have to Read More

“Pinkalicious” Ticket Giveaway


About a year ago, I took my daughter to see "Pinkalicious" downtown at the Bleeker Theater.  If you have a daughter age 12 and under, particularly one who loves the color as much as mine does, I am sure you have heard of the story.  The play is based on a book by Elizabeth Victoria Kahn.  It's about a little girl who can't stop eating pink cupcakes, despite warnings from her parents.  She then develops an ailment called Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe.  At first she is thrilled, but when reality sets in, she has to figure Read More
