On February 15th and 16th, Dreamworks Theatricals will present Madagascar Live! at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex. This 90-minute, traveling Broadway production is a new musical based on the beloved movies and was developed by a talented team of writers, producers and musicians. While the theatre critics may comment on the budget for this production and creative talent, I know Madagascar as the movie that had our 3 year old daughter (and probably yours too) dancing and singing “I like to move it, move it,” and providing us with endless laughter. We still quote one of my favorite characters, the hippo named Moto Moto (a name so nice you say it twice!). Overall, the best quality about the Madagascar story and characters is that it appeals to the entire family. Thank you to Dreamworks for providing humor that only adults fully understand inside a storyline made for the kids.
Shows are scheduled for February 15th at 7pm and February 16th at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets, ranging in price $43 to $96, are on sale now and can be purchased through TicketMaster.
