Review: Puss in Boots
Based on a traditional folk tale, Puss in Boots was an overall good show! A four year old and a todd in tow, we went to see the musical act of this amazing story of a boy and his clever talking cat in boots. How an intelligent cat uses trickery to fool the King and how she transforms her master from a poor boy to a "Marquis of Carabas" to a wealthy young man marrying the princess, the moral of the story revolved around deceptive appearances and that one should look beyond the surface, not to be fooled by others. Who will win the hand of the princess? Who will get eaten? Who will get rescued? The story involved evil ogres, a king and a princess apart from a cat and her master.

It was interactive! It was musical! It was fun! It was also an overall learning experience for the kids. We really liked the way they engaged audience and used flash cards to make kids learn - repeat a phrase "Marquis of Carabas" during the show.

The real sounds in the background such as when a boy jumps in the water, dialogues echoing like an interesting storytelling, props closed to perfect and characters dressed up in wonderful costumes made the overall show feel like real.

After the show, we also got a chance to have a meet & greet with the cast of the show as well discounts upon registering for the other shows at ACE Festival 2014.

Verdict: If you like the storyline and if you think your kids will like the characters, please do go for this show!

Maybe it’s simple and maybe it’s not.
