Went with the family on our annual trip to the Stratford Shakespeare Festival — 15 consecutive years and counting! The kids are now old enough to start seeing some of the shows. This year, they took in Jesus Christ Superstar and Camelot, one of which I will review for www.criticsatlarge.ca. Here’s how the kids viewed them:
My 11-year old son on Camelot:
“Not enough action, not enough sword-fighting and the songs were terrible. The best thing about it was the hawk.”
My 8-year old daughter on Jesus Christ Superstar:
“They weren’t really whipping him, mommy. It was just acting.”
And good acting, at that. But more on that in a later post.
