Today I had the phenomenal experience of watching an open rehearsal for a fantastic new musical comedy from Midtown Direct Rep Rated P... for Parenthood. And, it's local. That's right - Rated P... for Parenthood is playing at SOPAC right here in my neck of the woods - scenic South Orange, New Jersey.

First, let me tell you this show is hysterically funny. But it's also more then just a good time. It really captures the poignancy of parenthood with sketches focusing on familiar milestones such as your daughter's first day at work (with dad videotaping, of course) to riding shotgun with your teenage son at the wheel (don't worry, the mom survives). The one I related to the most? The mom admitting to her eighth-grade son she can't help him with his homework. I'm already there with my daughter's second-grade math.

An ensemble cast of four phenomenally talented players cover dozens of characters we can all relate to - the football-watching dad, the laundry-obsessed mom, and of course, the gay dads raising straight triplet boys. 

With three young kids of my own, I'm often still in the will-this-day-ever-end stage of parenting. So today, I was more then a little bit grateful for the reminder that my kids will grow-up much too quickly. (Full disclosure: I will completely forget this sentiment when they climb into bed with me at 5:36am tomorrow morning.)

Tickets to Rated P: The Musical are $35 to $45 and are available online at Performances are Thursday, May 5 to Saturday, May 7 at 8:00pm and Sunday, May 8 at 3pm. There is a talk back with the cast and creative team after every performance. Please note: performance is not suitable for children.

Okay, now that weekend is NOT filled up. I get to enter! And personally, I love that it's a 3 PM performance because my kids have been waking us up super early as well. There's no way I'd be coherent enough for an evening performance.
