Broadway

Lights on Broadway: A Theatrical Tour by Brian Stokes Mitchell,2009.

I think this book would be a great read if your child is in an upcoming play, or you're going to be going to a play or musical of any kind. If you're lucky enough to attend a show on Broadway, you have the best advantage, but you could always go to a local Broadway performance or rent a video of a Broadway show while reading this book with your child.

"E is for Encore! When the audience likes a song or dance and would like to see it performed again, they call out "Encore!" (French for "again"). Hearing 'encore' is music to a performer's ears. And if the audience stands up, claps, and cheers, it's known as a standing ovation."

This book also includes a CD of the song "I Was Here" sung by the author Brian Stokes Mitchell featured in the musical "The Glorious Ones".
