Based on the popular series of children's books, Pinkalicious weaves a delightful musical tale designed for children 2–10 years old. The show's eponymous heroine takes her love of all things pink too far when she gorges herself on pink cupcakes, altering her skin to a rosy hue. After a doctor diagnoses a case of pinkititis and recommends a healthy dose of greens to cure it, a stealthily ingested pastry changes her skin tone to a dark red. Startled, Pinkalicious finally eats her veggies and restores her skin to its natural shade, teaching children a valuable lesson about balanced diets, the importance of listening to medical professionals, and the hardships of chameleons.
Pinkalicious's songs keep toes tapping through the entire runtime. After the final notes have faded, a postshow meet and greet allows youthful patrons to shake the hands of newly discovered stage idols and furtively lick fingers to check for leftover frosting.
Master Theater often hosts visiting Eastern European artists on its modern, LED-equipped stage. The 1,400 plush seats have been privy to performances from ballets to rock concerts, the tunes of Ray Charles to the jokes of Jackie Mason, bringing culture to audiences without putting them through an etiquette course.
