Can my child/baby attend the theatre?/Is the show appropriate for children?

Bonnie Sludikoff, Writer, Director
Slightly Off-Broadway

Bonnie is an ambitious and fun-loving LA girl who made the incredibly questionable decision to work on three shows in this year's Fringe Festival. In addition to this show, she is producing The Magic School Bus: A Traumedy and The Physicists! Bonnie is super excited to have the opportunity to work on this production with Chromolume Theatre (where she is a staff-member!). Slightly-Off Broadway is a collection of 20 Broadway songs re-imagined with parody lyrics that Bonnie wrote as a result of listening to her favorite Broadway soundtracks far too many times. She also wrote and is starring in her third one-woman show - The Magic School Bus: A Traumedy, playing next door in the Sacred Fools Studio from June 3-22! Bonnie was recently seen in Songs for a New World, and she currently enjoys making up silly songs with her Musical Improv Group, "99 Problems, But A Pitch Ain't One." In her spare time (that's only sort of a joke...) Bonnie is working on making the world a better, safer place with her non profit campaign "That's What She Didn't Say"- an organization dedicated to creating healthy conversations about challenging topics.
