Review of Fancy Nancy at Emerald City Theatre
I think the relationship between Nancy and her mom (Claire Kaiser) was a really sweet one. It sort of reminded me a little bit of the relationship with me and my mom. I liked the tea party song because it sort of showed that the mom wanted to cheer her up and she knew what would make her feel better. And that is like in my life if I am feeling sad, mom will say "Let's go watch a mystery program, like Miss Fisher." You won't feel better about it quicker if you just dwell on how bad it is. You can just think about something else that's good. I also really like the song that the mom sang to Nancy about how you will always be a star for me even if you don't get the biggest part. I liked that because sometimes me and my mom have conversations like that about how even if I don't get the main part, the show will still be about whatever part I get to my mom.
At the very end they show this big dance number where Nancy and all her friends are doing their big show about sea creatures. I really liked every single part of it, but I really liked the jellyfish umbrellas, and the slightly silly seahorse, and the maypole thing at the end where Nancy got to be front and center as a tree. And the shark! Lionel played the shark and the shark did this really cool rap which was just about being a shark and the whole audience would chomp their hands together like a shark mouth and go "Chomp chomp. Chomp chomp." It was just like being at a rap concert for a shark and that is probably one of the funniest and most ridiculous things ever. And he was actually really good at rapping too! "Cause I'm a shark! Yeah!"
People who would like this show are people who like tea parties, oysters, and rapping sharks. I think people should definitely go see this show, especially with a little one because then you get to witness them seeing the magic of theater. I saw it with my friend's little sister, and it was so fun to see her being so happy to see this.
