When your a mom of multiple children it becomes hard to have one on one time with each so when TheMomsNetwork invited to see if amazing play we jumped to the opportunity. So my husband and I took our 13 year old Amaya to see it. Quality time is often hard to gather when you have three children so a day out to a broadway show which happened to be my first was fantastic to share it with my loves.
This has by far always been my favorite book and movie so to see it come to life as a musical was truly amazing.
All the characters from the play where great, this play was very funny and sad but overall was simply wonderful. The musical is based on Tuck Everlasting is an American children’s novel written by Natalie Babbitt and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1975
It explores the concept of immortality.. It has sold over two million copies so no wonder the play was made.

Eleven-year-old, Atlanta-based actress Sarah Charles Lewis plays the central role of Winnie Foster, the young girl who befriends a unique family that has gained eternal life by drinking from a spring that flows from a tree in the woods.
