A great production starting later this month at the Monroe Theatrespace (720 Monroe Street).

Fun play for all ages!

mile-square-theater-mst-kids-lillys-purple-plastic-purse-hoboken-njMSTKids, Mile Square Theatre’s theatre for youth program, kicks off with Kevin Kling’s stage adaptation of 2005 Caldecott Medal Winner Kevin Henkes’s popular children’s book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, opening October 23 at the Monroe Theatrespace. A comical play about family, school, friendship, and forgiveness, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is suited for kids of all ages and their families.

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is directed by Mile Square Theatre’s Artistic Director Chris O’Connor who, as an actor, was part of the early development of this play at the Seattle Children’s Theatre. In the role of Lilly, the professional cast is headed by MST company member Blaire Brooks, who is well remembered for her comedic work in Scapin and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While not gracing the MST stage, Blaire has worked in off-Broadway productions at Manhattan Theatre Club and The Public Theater, in commercials, and has appeared on Law & Order and the Guiding Light.

This production will also feature the work of Puppet Heap, a puppet design company residing at Monroe Center, who lists among its clients Walt Disney Co, Jim Henson Puppets, and the Sesame Workshop.

I don’t know where you were looking but there is, in fact, a MST facebook profile with LPPP all over it. If you can see it, to the left, it shows a sample of the friends MST has on facebook. The actress’ profile popped up in there….I saw it and saw the finger.

It’s incredible how malicious you think I am. All I said was that I thought it was a little inappropriate. That’s all. I don’t have any agenda, motives or angles. This was no personal attack. I don’t know her, I’m not apart of a rival company. I don’t know why you’re so angry about this.

Ignore her. You have a point that is valid, even if not everyone agrees. Mooshu has a habit of taking over threads that have to do with children’s activities. She always seems to know more than every parent and continues to argue no matter what. She has no children and knows no one involved. Every child-centric post on Hoboken411 is taken over by her odd proclamations so that parents are turned away. I get your point 100% and think that behavior on social networking sites is relevant. Please believe there are many of us who–without necessarily agreeing–understood you and get your comments as valid.

I was angry about it because her middle finger wasn’t on a Playbill, and you decided to make her behavior into the mountain that it simply wasn’t. It’s eff’d up. But I’m sure you can be an adult about it and move on.

Thanks. For all I know, AEF710 could be starting crap on behalf of *another* children’s theater company. Don’t really know, don’t really care. Just wanted to set the record straight.

Wow, ok. I didn’t mean it that negatively. I don’t have kids. I AM an actor… I just thought it was a little inappropriate….

yikes.

Well said, mooshu! I just saw this show and it was absolutely AMAZING! Blaire Brooks captivated a children-packed audience for over an hour, which is no easy task. She, along with the rest of the incredibly talented cast, also successfully entertained the adults. In a world filled with so much negativity, this theater group triumphantly transports its audience to a magical place filled with optimism and imagination. It’s charming, charismatic, and hilarious- without coming across as corny. And that’s a combination that’s about as easy to attain as getting a theater full of children to stay quiet and entertained for an hour! In response to “AEF710”- I assume that you are an adult. As an adult, you should (but don’t) have the common sense to recognize that the star of this play is also an adult. Her Facebook picture may have been inappropriate if she was in her costume, or if the theater company used this “middle-finger” picture as an ad for the show- but that’s not what happened. You not only overreacted to a personal picture of an adult woman, but you then deemed it necessary to relay your negativity to a public forum- which is more inappropriate that the picture itself. Perhaps you should spend less time trying to contaminate a play with a positive message and more time with your own children- who are probably learning far worse things than a “middle-finger” while you’re busy on Facebook.
