By: Roxy on 02/10/09 @ 9:43 am

London described it as “the best birthday party ever.” Maddie just loved having our own private balcony for ten, looking out over the crowd. Rex said, “Weird… but wonderful.” One of the other moms kept looking for Eloise from the Plaza Hotel… she didn’t find that naughty little six-year-old, but enjoyed many other surprises. I [...]

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jellicle Cats Are Coming to NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey: Tuesday, November 18th - Sunday, November 23rd

By: Roxy on 11/6/08 @ 10:05 pm

Are you blind when you’re born? Can you see in the dark?

Jellicles do and jellicles would
Jellicles would and [...]
