Mamma Mia

March 22, 2015

Set in a beach resort in the Mediterranean, Mamma Mia! tells the story of Sophie, a bride-to-be with one wish: to have her absent father walk her down the aisle. After reading passages about three old lovers in her mom’s diary, Sophie sends each a wedding invitation in hopes of learning which is her dad. The arrival of the men from her past is surprising to Donna, Sophie’s fiercely independent mother, who prides herself on getting through life without a man, and highly amusing to Donna’s two best gal pals. The more Sophie and her mother struggle to find truth and understanding, the more it threatens to tear them apart and wreck Sophie’s dream wedding.

Though kids will love the cool music and the energetic dancing, the plot can bring up some questions for the little ones. (Why did Donna have so many boyfriends, mommy?!) But nothing’s very explicit and the tone is cheery throughout, making it a pretty safe family destination.

This is one Broadway show where singing along (and dancing in the aisles) is encouraged.

The Flying Karamazov Brothers are soaring into Yakima! Expect the unexpected with these four self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics. Spicing things up with a zany showcase filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, wild theatrics, and astonishing juggling feats, these pranksters dance, prance, pun, sing, and mesmerize their way through a madcap evening.

Welcome to the zany world of The Flying Karamazov Brothers, where the daring and goofy take center stage. Featuring four self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics spicing things up with a zany showcase filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, wild theatrics, and astonishing juggling feats, this ground-breaking blend of nouveau cirque, comedy, theatre, music, and, of course, juggling is nothing short of genius. Innovative and unique, they display their juggling prowess in such show stopping numbers as “The Gambler.” In this daring act, the Karamozov champion Dimitri will juggle three items presented to him by audience members. If the champion succeeds he gets a standing ovation. If he fails, he gets a pie in the face! This exuberant and hilarious off-Broadway rave is full of fast-paced virtuosity and fun as the four brothers deliver a stupendously entertaining evening like you've never experienced.

The audience may bring whatever objects of whimsy—or danger—that it thinks will prove "unjugglable," except for "live animals or anything that might stop the juggler from being a live animal."
