Mommy Poppins on Please Bring Balloons: "Full of Magic and Imagination"

Mommy Poppins on Please Bring Balloons: “Full of Magic and Imagination”

Thank you to Mommy Poppins for coming to see Please Bring Balloons and for their awesome review!

The audience is invited to dance, shake maracas, fly, and create their own balloons during the show. We even had a snowball fight at one point. It’s completely interactive, making it a great option for first-time and very young theatergoers.

There were lots of giggles and smiles throughout, and even with just two actors and a small setting, the show builds the kids’ anticipation about what will come next, keeping them guessing and engaged throughout. It’s a sweet, magical adventure filled with animals, balloons, music, and twinkling lights–and easily my 4-year-old’s favorite show in the last year.

— Rose Gordon Sala, Mommy Poppins on Please Bring Balloons

"It helps kids see what is great about poetry!" - Says Me Says Mom

“It helps kids see what is great about poetry!” – Says Me Says Mom

Thank you to Says Me Says Mom for coming to see Love That Dog and for their awesome review!

The great thing about the show is that it takes the children in the audience on the same journey as the boy in the book. It helps them to see what is great about poetry and inspires them to write poems of their own.

The star of this one man show, Derek Christopher Murphy does a really great job in the role. He is very good at capturing the innocence and joy of youth which helps the children in the audience relate to him better. His enthusiasm for the role is so infectious that even older children and adults can’t help enjoying themselves.

It is just an all around sweet and entertaining show for people of all ages.

— Jeryl Marcus, Says Me Says Mom on Love That Dog

Featuring the poetry of Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and Walter Dean Myers, Love That Dog is a contemporary story about discovering the power of your own voice.  Based on the book by award-winning author Sharon Creech.

Love That Dog: "Entertaining and Poignant" - Mommy Poppins

Love That Dog: “Entertaining and Poignant” – Mommy Poppins

Thank you to Mommy Poppins for coming to see Love That Dog and for their awesome review!

“The show stars the charismatic and talented Derek Christopher Murphy, who carries the show single-handedly. While he does talk to other characters offstage, including his teacher and an author, Murphy is front and center the entire time. Although Murphy is clearly a young man, he manages to convincingly portray a 10-year-old boy experiencing a range of emotions. He has also mastered the physical comedy that makes parts of the story lighthearted and relatable. Some of his exasperated expressions had my daughter howling with laughter”

“New York City Children’s Theater’s latest production for school-age kids, Love That Dog, is a one-actor play that manages to be both entertaining and poignant.”

“The most clever thing is the subtle way young viewers are introduced to poetry along with Jack. At first, he claims boys don’t write poetry, but as he—and the viewers—hear works by renowned poets, Jack slowly becomes captivated by the rhythms and the stories.”

— Fiona Taylor, Mommy Poppins on Love That Dog

Featuring the poetry of Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and Walter Dean Myers, Love That Dog is a contemporary story about discovering the power of your own voice.  Based on the book by award-winning author Sharon Creech.
