It wouldn’t be Christmas in Boston without the arrival of a family-friendly holiday-themed theater experience. This year, it’s Elf The Musical, and we’ve been offered tickets for review, plus a giveaway for a lucky family (see below). I have a confession: I have never seen Elf the movie. Nope. Not once.

The Color Purple Comes to Boston [Review & Discount]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theater… [more]
