The Magic Museum

Nothing to do with me or UKMX, The Magic Museum is a play/musical playing for one day only in Mexico City and featuring our N. This term the school's been studying a bunch of artists through 500 years of world history and at the end of it the children devised a show based on four of them: Da Vinci, Hokusai, Van Gogh and Picasso. 
The story revolved around some children who are struggling with their art history homework. In desperation they go to a museum to try to get some inspiration. And lo-and-behold the paintings speak to them. So we were treated to a race through the Renaissance, Ukiyo-e, Impressionism and Cubism. N played a spirited young Leonardo da Vinci. We are hopeful of Dreamworks optioning the rights.
