A few days ago Gabby and I headed to the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College to watch Clifford The Big Red Dog! The musical is a part of the Target Family Fun series. Tickets were very affordable at $10 each. Gabby and I had such an amazing time!
Clifford The Big Red Dog was first published in 1963. Norman Bridwells’s beloved character is loved by many people all over the world. I myself grew up reading Clifford books.Asides from the books, there is also an animated series on PBS,DVD products,online activities,interactive products and a museum exhibit tour.
Clifford The Big Red Dog musical was so much fun to watch. One of my favorite parts of the show had to be the interaction with the audience. Thats one thing you don’t see too often. It was nice to hear all the kids shout all their responses back to Clifford and the rest of the cast. The actors did a great job on bringing Clifford,Emily Elizabeth and the rest of the cast to life. The set was nice to look at and the songs were catchy and fun to listen to!
All in all it was a lovely show. Gabby won’t stop asking me for a big red dog now!
