{Review and Giveaway} Piggy Nation, The Musical!

This past weekend, Aiden and I headed to the Snapple Theater Center in Midtown Manhattan to check out Piggy Nation, The Musical! Because it was pretty much 75 minutes of smiles and laughter, I knew Aiden had a good time. But, the educator in me wanted to make sure that he understood the themes and lessons behind the acting. This is just part of the conversation that ensued:
Me: What was your favorite part about Piggy Nation?
When the pig was giving them tickets.
Why was the pig giving out tickets?
Because they were talking too loud on the cellphone and they were littering all over.
Did you learn anything from that part?
Yeah... don't talk too loudly when I'm using a cellphone. And don't litter either.
Well, at least he won't have to worry about the cellphone thing any time soon. But, I'm glad that he got the message about littering - don't do it because it is inconsiderate, "piggy behavior."

That's the thing about Piggy Nation, The Musical -- it is ripe with laughter and age-appropriate lessons. Based of off the award-winning children's book, Piggy Nation: A Day At Work With Dad, Piggy Nation, The Musical is a story of father and son, mother and daughter, love, life, laughter, and lessons learned. (It's no secret that I feel strongly about learning lessons and moving forward.)

The audience certainly had a good time, and they learned lessons along the way. From "you don't have to be a pig to be a piggy," to "admit when you're thoughtless, acknowledge when you're wrong, and lose the attitude," Piggy Nation, The Musical certainly speaks to both children and adults alike.

While Aiden and I had front-row seats for this off-broadway production, the theater is rather intimate and any seat feels "close" to the stage and the actors. I think this is what I liked best about the show -- it feels interactive and gives children the sense that they are apart of the show. To top it all off, audience members were able to meet the actors and take pictures with them after the show! Needless to say, we had a good time and I'd certainly recommend it.

Piggy Nation, The Musical is now playing at the Jerry Orbach Theater at the Snapple Theater Center -- 210 West 50th Street. Performances are on Saturdays at 11am and 5pm, and Sundays at 12pm.
