NEW YORK (AP) - Julianne Moore is tickled pink about a glowing early review of the musical based on her first “Freckleface Strawberry” children’s book.
Then again, the critique was from her daughter.
The actress recently took 8-year-old Liv to a performance of “Freckleface Strawberry: The Musical,” and Moore says she didn’t once have to bribe her daughter with candy to stay quiet.
Says Moore: “She loved it.”
The off-Broadway musical is adapted from Moore’s best-selling adventures of a 7-year-old relentlessly teased by her schoolmates for having bright red hair and freckles, something Moore knows a lot about.
Now showing at New World Stages, the show features a cast of seven adult professionals. It officially opens Oct. 1.
