Great news! Who loves the musical BIG!? This October 11-12, 15-19 10 PERFORMANCES ONLY will be FEATURING JOHN TARTAGLIA AND KERRY BUTLER!!!


Josh Baskin is just like any other angst-ridden teenager – he can’t wait to grow up. Too bad you have to get through adolescence first. But when Josh makes a wish to be “big” at a carnival and wakes up the next morning in the body of a 30-year-old man, he learns how complicated adulthood can be.

This presentation of Big marks the New York premiere of the script and score created by the authors for the show’s national tour – a significantly revised version of the show with eight new Maltby and Shire songs, never recorded and rarely heard.

Nature of Muftis: Quick sketches of Broadway shows that lets an audience focus on the story, the score and not the production values. With amazing Broadway casts, all done in an intimate 175 seat theater.

This is a new version of the show that has never before been seen in NYC. It contains 6 new songs by Maltby & Shire that are not on the recording of the show. Tickets Just $34 – Special US Family Guide Discount to Big The Musical – Tickets Just $34 with promo code: MUFTI34 http://usfamilycoupons.com/coupon.php?regionid=75&bid=11827&dealid=1791 @usfg

The Wizard of Oz at Westchester Broadway Theatre #giveaway

The Wizard of Oz at Westchester Broadway Theatre #giveaway

Last Night my family and I ventured just a few minutes South to see The Wizard of Oz at Westcheter Broadway Theatre (WBT). My husband and I have been to several productions at the Theatre , but this was Main Man’s first experience. In his seven years he has seen several Broadway plays. I was not sure what his thought would be to have “dinner and a play”, WELL, He loved it!

Westchester Broadway Theatre which  just produced it’s 185th musical with The Wizard of Oz is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary. This makes it  the longest running year round Equity theatre in the history of the state of New York. 

Our meal which included a variety of fabulous  dining choices , offered two new choices for dinner which include Pretzel coated chicken and Bacon covered Meatloaf. Children are also able to enjoy a child friendly meal. Once we finished our dinner we sat in anticipation for the opening act. Once the ensemble appeared on stage we sat on the edge of our seats throughout the entire show. Often finding ourselves signing along.

Devon Perry who plays Dorothy Gale makes her WBT debut in this production, she was remarkably on mark from the character itself to her singing ability. Chris Kind who plays Hickory/Tinman also makes his WBT debut, you wouldn’t know it from the ease in which he played his characters. WBT returning actors Jayson Elliott and Tim Dolan , respectfully as Zeke/Cowardly Lion and Hunk/Scarecrow where amazing supporting characters to Devon Perry.

Of course there are The Wizard of Oz favorites, Auntie Em, Glinda the Good Witch, The Wicked Witch and the adorable Munchkins of Munchkin Land. Those children were absolutely fabulous and left my son wanting to know when he could audition.

Oz Ensemble

A great cast needs a creative set design along with creative lighting , sound effects and music. The Wizard of OZ hit everyone of those feats far more than I had imagined it could for this production. Glinda flew through the air, Dorothy’s house pitched during the tornado scene and let’s not forget Toto played by Nigel the dog along with his Animal Trainer William Berloni were phenomenal. Much of this better than I have viewed on Broadway itself.

The Wizard of Oz runs from now until September 21st 2014. It is a must see for the entire family. To purchase your tickets visit the on-line Box Office or visit the box office in person.

My son was super excited to come and see what products he could give his “review” for, of course with all the Mattel WWE Slam Citygear and his knowledge of WWE , the wrestlers and the toys that represent them he right away went over to the WWE Kidz zone. While there he got to play with WWE2K14 but the highlight for him was meeting Natalya and Darren Young. We have had the pleasure of meeting Nattie before and as always she is extremely child friendly and Darren Young showed his love for his fans as well.

Natalya & Darren were awesome with the children and parents

When I finally got my son to take a break from the WWE Kidz zone , we ventured over to Lands End to see what products they had for us to get our #firstdayfaves. I have always been a huge fan of Lands End for myself and my family. The backpacks have proven to outlast the school year and have many child friendly patterns with coordinating lunch boxes that are also insulted nicely.

He says Thank you Speck Products for that information. Be sure to check them out for all your device cases and cover needs!

The Lego Movie Giveaway And Awesome Blog App!

If your house is like ours then Everything Is Awesome is forever playing on ITunes and the release of the Lego Movie has hit your DVD players already. Main Street Mama is pleased to bring you The Lego Movie Giveaway And Awesome Blog App!

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Everything is Awesome

Everything is Awesome

Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.
