Most of the theater-related items on our list each year are just for us grownups, but we like to reserve one spot for a kid-friendly show. This year it was La Belle: Lost in the World of the Automaton at the Imago Theater.
This is part of our 100 Things in 2018 challenge. Make sure to click on the photos!
This was long and late for a kids’ show, and in fact out of 50 or so people in the audience, there were maybe 8 kids, but it was pitch perfect for Lucy. There was intricate stagecraft, puppets of several kinds, clockwork machines, stories within stories all referencing each other, and lots of whimsy.
We loved the show, and it was performed brilliantly. If you’re in town and have kids, definitely check this theater out, they’re doing some great work.
