Shows like “Pinkalicious” have themes parents and youngsters can discuss and offers new perspectives on old issues, [Tanguay] said. “I think it’s a unique opportunity that only can come through live theater.”
Sheryl DeVore, Chicago Tribune
And unlike similar productions of “Pinkalicious,” this one will utilize various instruments throughout the musical. “The inclusion of the instruments has been one of the exciting challenges of the show,” explains Tanguay. “To have the chance to utilize a piano and other instruments to enhance the storytelling has been really exciting.”

“This show is all about being a great leader,” Tanguay says. “And if you think about it, a room full of five- and six-year-olds — they are our future leaders. We want to bring children and parents to come together, so they can talk about things. It’s more than just entertainment. It’s a chance to learn.”

...directed and choreographed with heart and tenderness by popular Chicago actress/dancer Amanda Tanguay, and musically directed by Ellen K. Morris, the story has been updated and slightly altered...This isn’t your typical theatre for young audiences production. The Marriott’s current offering explores far more serious themes and offers considerably less action and broad comedy. The musical is far more character-driven and, as such, may not hold the attention of some very young theatergoers. However, juvenile audiences, and their adult companions, who appreciate and understand a more thoughtful and reflective story will love this production.
Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
This is a stunning production filled with memorable characters...As this production shares the stage with the main stage production of “Man Of LaMancha” there is no real set, but the smooth direction and solid cast take care of telling us the story in a way that every child (and adult) “gets it”!
