So when I heard that there was a musical theatrical version of it produced by Theaterworks USA (which is one of the top touring kid's theatres in the country) I jumped on the chance to see it (which is what we are going to do this Sunday at 1:30 pm at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
We are so looking forward to this!
If you are a studious or home-schooling parent, you can get study guides on the Theaterworks USA website.
This is from the press release:
Have you ever had a really rotten day? Alexander has... He wakes up with gum in his hair, he trips on a skateboard, and then he accidentally drops his sweater in the sink - all before breakfast! Alexander can already tell - it's going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day!
Alexander's day continues to go downhill as he gets smushed in the car on the way to school, his teacher doesn't like his drawing of an invisible castle, and Paul doesn't want to be his friend anymore. There's no dessert for lunch, there's lima beans for dinner, and even worse: there's kissing on television! It's enough to make you want to move to Australia!
Laugh and sing along with Alexander's misadventures in this hilarious musical, featuring book and lyrics by Judith Viorst, author of the best-selling classic book. Discover along with Alexander that sometimes, everyone has a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day began touring in 2006.
This 60-minute, intermission-less musical, featuring five actors, is appropriate for ages 4 and up.
Tickets are $25. To purchase tickets, call Ticketing Services at (212) 220-1460. Single tickets can also be purchased by visiting their website at http://tribecapac.org/children-families or by visiting the Box Office at 199 Chambers Street, Tues-Sat from 12PM – 6PM.
And for true Alexander fans, there is apparently a Steve Carrell movie coming out in October! (That doesn't look like a musical, and doesn't hold as true to the book, but it looks pretty funny!)
