As I was gearing up for a day of Sorting the Stuff, a friend called and invited me to come with her to see a show put on by The Neighborhod Theatre (site not updated). This is a small group, led by the wife of our drama teacher, that puts on plays for kids. Luckily, there are a ton of double entendres and adult references to keep it interesting for the parents and assorted adults. Today's play was no exception. Called "Follow the Vine", it was a varient on the "Jack and the Beanstalk" story, complete with singing cow and audience participation. Who can resist a show that includes the line "Gooooosie, I'm home" when the Giant returns? Not I, said the... oops! wrong children's story.
Even though it's not listed on the website, if you're in NYC Saturday or Sunday in June, go see "Follow the Vine" at the 78th Street Theatre Lab. It's worth the $5!
