language and sexual references is too edgy for you like it is for me , than this is the musical theater themed book for you I will admit to being slightly obsessed with the authors web seriesSubmissions Only , which is why I wanted to readJack and Louisa, Act 1 , but even if you have never heard of authors Broadway veterans This book may not be for everyone because of all of the musical theater references that most won t get, but oh, how I loved it IfBetter Nate Than Ever, with its bad language and sexual references is too edgy for you like it is for me , than this is the musical theater themed book for you I will admit to being slightly obsessed with the authors web seriesSubmissions Only , which is why I wanted to readJack and Louisa, Act 1 , but even if you have never heard of authors Broadway veterans Andrew Keenan Bolger and Kate Wetherhead, this is still a fun read And if you are a confirmed Musical Theater Nerd MTN like myself, what are you waiting for I wasn t thrilled by the characters infatuation with Stephen Sondheim sInto The WoodsIn fact, if you mention that musical to anyone in our family we start singing in atonal voices, Into the woods, into the woods, into the woods, into the woods And yes, I do know that brands us as Broadway plebians because only the truly cultured get Sondheim, but I did bond with Louisa s dad in the book when they were discussing SondheimYou just don t appreciate the complexity of Sondheim, I muttered Dad looked at me, eyebrows raised I could tell my big words had impressed, or at least surprised him Still, he wasn t about to give in I appreciate the complexity of a turbine engine, Dad said with a smirk THAT is complexity worth appreciating This Sondheim stuff sounds like a record skipping Amen, brother.Aside from not likingInto the Woods , I loved everything else about this book The story is fun, the main characters are very likable, and the Broadway and New York references spoke to this poor, New York deprived Colorado girl I am lucky enough to have taken a couple of trips to New York, and this next quote from the book reminded me so much of a girl s trip I had with 2 of my daughters last year at this time We just wanted to blend in and not look too touristy so to accomplish that we had my son in law take a picture of us standing nonchalantly in Grand Central Station reading the paper and messing with our phones mission accomplished In this quote, Louisa just found out that her new neighbor, Jack, moved to her neighborhood in Shaker Heights, Ohio, from New York City She got excited about that and he asked her if she had ever been thereTo New York Yeah, a couple times, I replied, like going to the cultural capital of the world was no big deal Like I hadn t squealed with delight the first time I walked through Times Square, or practically fainted when I got a picture with Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz in front of Schmackary s Cookies Exposing my inner geek was a delicate process I needed to at least attempt to be cool Or maybe it reminds me of last summer when I flew to Long Island on a Tuesday for the birth of my granddaughter, told my daughter not to have the baby for another day and took the train into the city by myself on Wednesday the baby obliged and didn t come for another couple of days I walked from Penn Station to the Shake Shack on 8th Avenue, stood in the long line on a hot July day while pretending to talk to someone on the phone so I looked like a real New Yorker , got my shake and fries and walked to the St James Theater just down the street to go to the matinee ofSomething RottenI was incredibly early, and as I was standing in front of the theater all by myself with a fry halfway up to my mouth, Tony Award winner Christian Borle walked right in front of me I m pretty sure I stood with my mouth open and my hand holding the fry frozen in the air just watching him walk to the stage door but it is all kind of a blur So you can see why I connected to Louisa in that moment I try not to expose my inner geek as well and I m not a 12 year old girl And yes, we are planning another girls trip to New York in the fall and Schmackary s is definitely on the docket, along with Magnolia Bakery and 16 Handles Not that I obsessively watch broadway.com s backstage shows likeThe Princess DiaryorRenaissance Womanwhere they talk about the wonder of those places or anything So, do you have to be a Musical Theater Nerd to like this book No, it is a sweet and fun story even if you don t get all thrilled and tingly at the Broadway New York references However, if you ARE an MTN, you will absolutely love it like I did I can t wait to read Act 2 And now I have to find out which of my middle schoolers will love it as much as I did I do have one student named Sutton, and the first time she checked out a book I told her one of my favorite Broadway performers was named Sutton and she knew who I was talking about that

Seven Brothers and I found Jack Louisa utterly delightful Keenan Bolger and Wetherhead bring their own experiences as Broadway performers and co creators for Submissions Only a web series about struggling actors from New York , to Jack Louisa Sprinkle in some theatrical references, terms and Broadway musicals and we ve got an entertaining story Think the book Better Nate Than Ever by Tim Federle Jack and Louisa is told in alternating first person and it worked very well for me I got the sense of Jack s insecurities about moving to a new place and being found out about being fired from his last production, while at the same time Lou s wanting to learn from Jack experiences and to get to know him better There is plenty of humor and the friendship they have over a shared passion for theater is very sweet This went so fast, almost too fast I didn t want it to be over While the musical theater references and infusions were so much fun, what made this really stand out was the evolution of Jack and Louisa s friendship I loved that it wasn t automatic or easy because they shared an interest so important to both of them, but once they became friends their rapport was relaxed and fun Can t wait for Act 2 Adorable story for young theater nerds written by two young Broadway vets Fun, quick read for adult theater nerds who still nurse their own Broadway fantasies Similar to but not as layered as Tim Federle s Better Nate Than Ever series. It s set in Shaker Heights, OH Which is awesome, but as a Clevelander myself, I wonder why they didn t throw in the fact that Cleveland has a very large, vibrant theater scene Depending upon how you run the numbers, I ve heard it s right behind NYC for the 2nd largest district in the US.I really liked it, as did my children, both of whom insisted that I read it I liked it for the emphasis on friendship and openness to interacting with new people, and that it dealt with the nerd factor head on It s set in Shaker Heights, OH Which is awesome, but as a Clevelander myself, I wonder why they didn t throw in the fact that Cleveland has a very large, vibrant theater scene Depending upon how you run the numbers, I ve heard it s right behind NYC for the 2nd largest district in the US.I really liked it, as did my children, both of whom insisted that I read it I liked it for the emphasis on friendship and openness to interacting with new people, and that it dealt with the nerd factor head on My 11yo son thought it was funny and he found the theater topic intriguing surprise to mom My 9yo daughter liked the characters The only flaw I found was that they did not explain in clear terms why a voice change for a middle high school boy happens and what it means for him singing I got the nuance as an adult, but the real impact was lost on my two kids An aware 7th grader or one w older siblings friends might get it, but I think that a short, simple explanation would make the book muchunderstandable to younger readers or older ones that are blissfully unawareparticularly girls Frankly, my teenage self never noticed it in my friends, but then I may have been obtuse Super cute Fans of Federle will love this one
