2012, Diana Vreeland, life isn't fair, new year's resolution, off Broadway musical, Paris Adieu, Pinkalicious the Musical;, Rozsa Gaston, Think Pink, Universal Studios, Victoria Kann, you get what you get and you don't get upset
My new year’s resolution for 2012 is to think pink. What’s yours?
To kick off my new year’s resolution, I took the family to see Pinkalicious the Musical by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann. It’s the story of Pinkalicious, who can’t stop eating pink cupcakes, despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe – a dream come true for this pink enthusiast. But when her hue goes to far, only Pinkalicious can figure out how to get out of her predicament! Now playing at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, 248 W. 60th St., next to Lincoln Center in Manhattan.http://www.pinkaliciousthemusical.com/
For me, the most important line in the play was when Pinkalicious’s mom sings to her “Life isn’t always fair. You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” That line sang to me as I noticed my eleven year old daughter next to me, taking it in. She knows about getting what you get even when what you get isn’t fair. My job is to help her handle what she’s got like the princess she is.
And think about thinking pink this year. It will help you get through the moments when life seems unfair.
Hugs and kisses to all the princes and princesses out there,
