Pink Dogs RULE!
by Dedalus

4.0
This is Julia Rudy again, and I’m almost 6 ½ years old. Last weekend, my Daddy took me and my friend Aubrey to see another play, where we had to stand and hand out programs before the play even begins. This wasn’t too much fun because I was standing too close to Daddy and he bumped my nose and it hurt so he sent me across the lobby to buy some gummy worms, which were actually gummy fishes, and they made me feel a little better, especially because I didn’t have to share them with Aubrey since Daddy bought her some too. What made me feel lots and lots better were the Daddy hugs. (Daddy’s boss Shana hugged me too, and that made me feel good. I like her a lot even though she is always running around doing busy stuff like Mommy when she directs a play.)

Anyway, I liked the play a lot. It was about these dogs who are all different colors and who do a lot of fun stuff to help little kids learn colors and shapes and directions and how much fun you can have with bubble paper. Even though I already knew everything they were teaching me (because I always watched “Elmo” and “Teletubbies” when I was a little kid), I still liked the play because I like plays, and it was bright and funny and the Dogs were all colorful, especially the Pink Dog who wore bigger and funnier hats and who couldn’t get the Daddy Dog (who was funny when he got roller skates stuck on his feet) to say he liked them. I’m just sad that Aubrey didn’t like the play (she kept asking Daddy when it would be over) but I think it was just because she was sleepy because we had a sleepover the night before and we did more overing than sleeping. I guess I was sleepy too, because I fell asleep before we got home, but I still liked this play lots and lots.

Especially the pink dog.

Daddy’s note: This is short and fast and not painful for a grownup to sit through. Like Julia says, it’s probably best enjoyed by the 2-5-year-old Elmo crowd – Aubrey’s reaction may be atypical, but it could be an indication that kids older than 5 may not like it as much (unless, like Julia, they are theatre brats). I really liked Courtney Patterson (Pink Dogs DO rule) and Chris Ensweiller (but then, when haven’t I liked either of them). The rest of the cast were just as fine, and the “Bubble Wrap” dance was truly inspired. This is a truly Grade-A choice for introducing the littlest spawnlings to live theatre.
