I don’t know if you know this, but Freaky Friday is one of my favorite movies, well Disney has went and turned it into a musical and my little girl Sophia just LOVES it! We painted our nails, made some cupcakes, then sat down to watch the new Freaky Friday: The Musical!
A contemporary musical update of the classic comedic story, “Freaky Friday” is based on Disney Theatrical Productions’ stage adaptation of the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Blake and her uber-organized mom Katherine, are constantly at odds about Ellie’s messy room, sloppy clothes and seemingly careless attitude. Ellie really misses her dad who passed away a few years ago; she bickers with her younger brother and argues with Katherine who’s getting ready to marry her fiancé, Mike – tomorrow. As mother and daughter quarrel, they accidentally break the treasured hourglass given to Ellie by her father and then, suddenly, they magically switch bodies. Now, Ellie and Katherine must trade places at work and at school, and, during one crazy day, they’ll learn to understand and appreciate each other.
I personally loved Freaky Friday: The Musical, I believe Disney can take any movie, remake it and turn it into a musical that has wit, charm and humor. I half expected the actors to be like Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan but they’re completely different, even their personalities are a little different and I think it adds a great touch to the musical. Imagine Freaky Friday revamped, this it and if you have a little one at home who wouldn’t quite understand stand the original Freaky Friday, this one will surely be a hit as it’s done in a magical spin that Disney always seems to put on things!
I won’t give too much away, but there is a cute dog, a cute boy, a band and a wedding, a little like the original but very, very different and you will just have to pick up a copy to find out more!
