New Theater for Kids: This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing

The girls and I recently checked out a production of The Atlantic Theater Company's This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing at the Linda Gross Theater in Chelsea. We really enjoyed ourselves!

Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, the fairy tale follows three sisters and the choices they make after their father leaves them in a deep, dark forest at the request of their wicked step-mother (why are the step-mothers in fairy tales always so awful?). What follows are three entertaining adventures as the sisters go in search of themselves and ultimately each other.

"This Girl Laughs..." played to a packed house, and I have to say we were really "in it" the whole time. We loved the musical element and the set was gorgeous (also impressive was what the cast was able to create with the help of limited items on stage & everyone's imagination). While the sisters each followed their own callings, I loved most of all that in the end, finding each other was their most important quest. I was crying as we clapped for everyone on stage! Showing through March 4th, "This Girl Laughs..." is a funny, thoughtful and girl-empowering adventure, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
