A Great Night Out

The girls would love this!

That’s how we left Broadway GR’s Cinderella last night… talking about how our kindergarten daughters would have enjoyed coming to the show. It was a point reinforced by all of the little girls we saw twirling around in Cinderella dresses in the lobby.


Turns out I was full of misconceptions about the show. Here they are, debunked:

  • The audience will be full of women. Wrong! While there were plenty of women at the show, there were also a lot of men. Cinderella is a show for anyone interested in a great performance with a great message.
  • This might be boring. Let’s face it, as a mom of 2 young girls, I’ve had a lot of princess stories in my life. I was thrilled to find the story line engaging and the performance top-notch. I found myself laughing  at times and with goosebumps at others. Probably my favorite mystery, thought, was wardrobe. HOW did they get those dresses to transform, right before my eyes, on stage like that? I was watching like a hawk and still can’t figure it out. Conclusion: they used real magic to make it happen.

  • Broadway Grand Rapids is just another play house. WRONG. I know it’s in the name, but I forgot that these are actual Broadway productions brought to life in Grand Rapids. This is an immense privilege for our community- we don’t have to go to NYC to fight crazy ticket lines to see these top-notch productions. I’m happily amazed that BGR is in our community.
