Sergio and I are excited to see the American Repertory Theater’s (A.R.T.’s) newest production, Wild: A Musical Becoming, that just opened and will run through Sunday, January 2nd.
The new musical is a fable about a single mother struggling to hold on to her family farm and connect with her teenage daughter, whose determination to save the planet endows her and her friends with powers. The fantastical sounding musical was created by Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright V (formerly Eve Ensler – think Vagina Monologues) and has Broadway star-power with Tony Award-winning performer and songwriter Idina Menzel (Rent, Wicked and Frozen) and Javier Muñoz (In The Heights and Hamilton). The Boston Globe published an article about the show, the creative forces who contributed to the show and its underlying messages, here.
Sergio and I have plans to see the musical on Friday, which affords us the chance to see Idina Menzel who is only performing in the musical through Thursday, December 23rd. Ticket prices start at $25. You can learn more about Wild: A Musical Becoming, and the remainder of the A.R.T.’s fantastic season here.
