This Week's Theatre & Concert Favorites For Adults And Families

It's a big week in theatre town.    Tonight the kids and I are going to the opening night of 

Cirque Eloize, Cadillac Palace opening 4/26* 

Then the kids and I are super stoked to see

  • Tribune Freedom Center North 4/29*

*We'll have a full review later this week

Parents' Night Out:

  • Dead Milkmen
     Congress Theater 4/30* (all ages-though language alert if you're bringing the littles)

    • Here's Sagezilla and world renowned pop artist, Romero Britto, both in shirts bearing their own art work.   Check out our post from that day HERE.

    Sagezilla is modeling her DIY Dead Milkmen Minnie Pearl Tee, hangin' at Kidzapalooza with Romero Britto.

*We'll have a full review and show photos later this week

The Dead Milkmen are still Sagezilla's favorite band.   Here's the 2nd DIY Dead Milkmen shirt she made.   The back says I'm Minnie Pearl and the front says "...eating fudge banana swirl, just you and me punk rock girl."

Punk rock girl you look so wild
Punk rock girl let's have a child
We'll name her Minnie Pearl
Just you and me
Eating fudge banana swirl
Just you and me
We'll travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl
