Actress and writer Julianne Moore's childrens' book series is inspiring a musical, Freckleface Strawberry, that will be playing at Off-Broadway's New World Stages starting in late summer.
The upcoming musical is about a seven-year-old girl whose freckles mark her as different.
The show is billed:
"Freckleface Strawberry the Musical chronicles the life of seven-year-old Strawberry being teased by her schoolmates for having bright red hair and freckles. She feels different from everyone else and does anything to get rid of them — from scrubbing them with soap and even wearing a ski mask to school. Strawberry goes on a journey and discovers that all people are different. She ultimately learns to accept herself for all of who she is, freckles and all."
Sounds really cute.
Adult actors will be playing children in the musical.
That's a little weird to us.
We think children should be playing children in the show.
Who do U think should be cast?? Children or adults??
