Detour: Aladdin and Violet on Broadway

October 7, 2014

Yeah, you saw this coming a million miles away: Max is a show-biz kid. This happens, of course, spending almost three years on the road with his actor Dad.  Watching The Lion King dress rehearsals countless times has made him an afficionado of the show, and last Halloween he even got to be the sinister [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Washington, DC

August 4, 2014

Hot, muggy Washington, DC is our home for nine whole weeks this summer — it’s the longest we’ve been stationed in one spot so far on this Lion King tour, and it’s nice to stay a while. Even if it’s supremely swampy. Our view of the Capitol Building from our neighborhood perch in Capitol Hill/Southeast. [...]

(Baby) Showering Us with Love

August 13, 2013

Often, people are incredulous that we travel full-time, as a family, on tour with The Lion King. What a logistical nightmare, they say. Where do you live? How do the kids go to school? Where do you call home? Does it ever get lonely? No, we say. We travel with plenty of people who are [...]

Life seems to be moving at light speed now.  I guess that’s what happens when you have kids — every day becomes so chock full of responsibilities, activities and moments to savor, that you have no time to be bored, and scarce time for introspection.  I can honestly say I don’t remember the last time [...]

June 7, 2013
