This Beautiful Inheritance: I Give It Five Stars!

I Give It Five Stars!

Sunday we took Eden to see Super WHY Live! at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis. We had been excited about this for a while now. Super WHY is the cutest PBS show, which Eden just loves, so we were anxious to see her reaction to the live performance. And we had never taken her to a live show like this so we also knew it was a shot in the dark whether she'd actually sit through it.

Boy, did she! She was the STILLEST I have ever seen her. She was absolutely mesmerized. And I can't blame her. It was an adorable show. It started off with a large screen displaying the animated characters (like on the TV show). Then Wyatt, the main character, stuck one foot "out of the screen," which made it look like he was emerging into "real life." That was Eden's favorite part of the whole thing. Ask her what happened in the Super WHY show, and she'll tell you that Wyatt "came out." (Good thing I explained to you what this means, right?) :-)

The whole show was full of special effects that kept the kiddos and their parents entertained. There were flying WHY-flyers, acrobats, dazzling lights and lots of confetti. So it was pretty much every kid's dream afternoon.

(I made the mistake of relying on my iPhone instead of bringing my camera along, so I couldn't get any good pictures of the show... but if you look at the top of the photo you can see some of the WHY-flyers)

Overall, we had a great time. The show honestly exceeded my expectations in how well it kept the kids' attention. Though the whole place was packed with preschoolers, I don't think I heard one kid cry or saw one parent have to haul their kid out. That, my friend, qualifies as a five-star performance.

(We received comp show tickets in return for this blog post and this one. The super opinions, though, are all mine.)
