Last weekend, Aiden and I spent 60-minutes giggling and laughing as we checked out the show at The New Victory Theater. We haven’t been to the super cool children’s theater in a few months and we were totally surprised when we saw that the theater got a little nip/tuck. Not only are the renovations on the upper level sleek,…
