PinkaliciousÂ the Musical, presented by The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, is recommended with a 4-Star Rating. Â League of Cincinnati Theatre (LCT) Panelists commended Emma ParksÂ for her role as Pinkalicious and David A. CentersÂ was recognized for his scenic design.
On Emma Parksâ€™ Â performance, panelists noted â€œPinkalicious herself was a bundle of energy and carried it throughout the show,â€ and â€œParks as Pinkalicious was stellar– brash and loud and had a nice mix/belt to match.â€
Also, â€œThe set held surprises for the kids and got oohâ€™s and ahâ€™s when the turn table revealed Pinkalicious’s bedroom, the glow in the dark cupcake dreams, and more.â€
According to LCT panelists, â€œThe play held the attention of all the little girls, moms, dads and grandmasâ€ with a great story, â€œand a great message.â€ Â Pinkalicious the Musical is based on the popular childrenâ€™s book of the same name by Victoria and Elizabeth Kahn, and tells the story of a girl who turns pink after she eats too many pink cupcakes.Â At first, she loves being her favorite color, but discovers that there are problems (including being mistaken for a flower and being attacked by delightfully musical bee and bluebird puppets). She resists the remedy (spoiler alert: eating green foods).
LCT recommends you bring your favorite youngster to find out if she ever returns to normal.
