Pinkalicious The Musical at The City Theatre Detroit
When my daughter was a toddler, we first learned about Pinkalicious and now my niece has followed in her footsteps. That is why we can’t wait for the upcoming show Pinkalicious The Musical coming to the City Theatre for three performances, presented by 313 Presents. The Vital Theatre Company’s long-running hit, Pinkalicious The Musical, will return to the City Theatre for three performances on Saturday, February 16 at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The one-hour musical is based on the best-selling children’s book “Pinkalicious” by Elizabeth Kann and Victoria Kann and features music, lyrics and orchestrations by John Gregor. The musical adaptation is directed by Teresa K. Pond based on the original direction of Suzu McConnell-Wood.

In Pinkalicious The Musical, Pinkalicious can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe – a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this predicament.
Pinkalicious The Musical debuted at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre in New York on January 13, 2007, in a Vital Theatre Company production directed by Suzu McConnell-Wood. The musical immediately moved to a larger space Off-Broadway and has played at a number of venues in Manhattan since then. It is currently performing at Theater at Blessed Sacrament.
