Attending musical theater is a more fun way to spend time with children than teaching them to differentiate between various types of mortgages or letting them watch cucumbers become pickles. Treat tots to a tune-filled event with today's Groupon: for $34, you get one ticket to Freckleface Strawberry the Musical at New World Stages (a $68.50 value).
Freckleface Strawberry the Musical, which received glowing reviews from the New York Times and is based on the New York Times bestselling book by actress Julianne Moore, tells the tale of a freckle-festooned little girl who, with the help of her friends, learns that differences make people special. Groupon-holders receive one admission for orchestra seating to this 70-minute kid-centric jamboree of singing, dancing, and joking. The talented cast includes theater veteran Remy Zaken (Strawberry) and American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar (Danny), both of whom had freckles Sharpied onto their faces for their roles. Unlike Keynesian Economics: On Ice!, Freckleface Strawberry is fun for the whole family, and kids of all ages are welcome to attend.
This Groupon is not valid for Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.
- “Freckleface Strawberry” will remind many grown-ups of being awkward, unathletic, bad at math, fill in the blank. Yes, we did get through it, though probably with not quite as much good fortune as Julianne Moore. – Laurel Graeber, New York Times
