(Not-So) Throwback Thursday Review: Broadway’s Finding Neverland

fn

Every time we turn on a talk show these days, we see Matthew Morrison (and sometimes Kelsey Grammer) promoting his latest gig: Broadway’s new Finding Neverland musical, which officially opened on April 15th. Basia had the chance to see it while it was still in previews, so she wrote up a review for all of you.

We’ve already established that I am an emotional musical attendee.

There’s something about the experience of watching something happening live that is so breathtaking to me, and let me tell you. Finding Neverland is a musical that makes seeing it live such a moving and powerful experience.

Coming Soon: Batgirl Reread

Waiting for the next issue of Batgirl to drop in June but can’t remember what happened? Haven’t read the new Batgirl yet and want to get started while it’s on a brief break? You’ve come to the right place. Basia is in love with the new Batgirl run, so starting next Wednesday, she’ll be doing a reread of the Batgirl comics, starting with Batgirl #35, to get you ready for Babs’s return on June 24th. She’ll be recapping, discussing, and, of course, fangirling right here for all of you, so make sure you join her.

Coming Soon: Marvel’s Agent Carter Rewatch

Do you love Agent Carter? What a coincidence–so do we. Connor is a self-proclaimed Agent Carter evangelist. “Have you accepted Peggy Carter as your lord and savior,” she jokes; it could probably be her catchphrase. When friends come to visit, one of the first things she does is make sure they’ve seen Agent Carter. If they haven’t, she sits them down and watches it with them all over again. (Seriously.)

As such, an Agent Carter rewatch has been on her to-do list for a while. Except this time, the friend with whom she’s sharing it is you! Within the next few days, keep an eye out for the beginning of Connor’s rewatch. Trust us–you won’t want to miss it.

Teas: Strawberry Champagne & Clouds and Mist

blogger: Basia

I love tea. My friendship with Connor sort of revolves around tea. In college, we were always in one another’s apartments, swapping tea bags and timing our arrival with the whistle of the kettle. (Seriously. It’s a superpower.) When my sister-in-law signed me up for Tea Sparrow as a Galentine’s Day present, I could have died of happiness. (No, I’m not married, but the boyfriend and I have been dating for over four years–“my boyfriend’s sister” is just impersonal at this point.) For those of you who don’t know, Tea Sparrow offers a subscription service where you receive four tea samples per month to try out. I won’t always be recommending/reviewing teas from Tea Sparrow, but it’s a nice opportunity for me to try new tea–and, as I’ve said, I love tea.

Throwback Thursday Review: Branagh’s Cinderella

Cinderella-2015

It’s been over a month since Cinderella premiered in theaters, but we still haven’t stopped talking about it. Over on our personal Tumblrs, we can often be seen crying about how beautiful the film was and how much it meant to us. Furthermore, it was an extremely negative review of Cinderella that led to us starting this website, so we felt a review was in order.

You could say that this was the beginning.
