This weekend kicked off B Street Theatre’s last Family Series production of the year: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day – a delightful rendition of the well-known children’s book by Judith Viorst. The book was first published in 1972 and continues to be a favorite among children and parents alike. In 1998, Viorst joined with the Kennedy Center to turn the book into a musical production, an adaptation of this is what is entertaining families, as we speak, at B Street.
I’m learning that it’s hard not to love a production here in B Street’s family theater. Small and intimate, it is therefore impossible to have bad seats. No matter where you sit, you can almost reach out and touch the actors…you are that close. And this fact, coupled with the delightful and talented actors themselves, makes for a mesmerizing performance. While Alexander is having a very bad day, the audience is clearly having a great day – filled with smiles and laughter.
We loved Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day and encourage you to head over to Sacramento’s famed theatre to experience it for yourself. And don’t forget to have your photo taken with the cast on your way out the door! The production, playing through June 1, 2014, is recommended for children ages 5 and older.
