Freaky Friday national tour comes to Alley Theatre / Houston Press

Not every book or movie can be successfully transformed into a play or musical.Broadway actress Heidi Blickenstaff says it works for Freaky Friday "because there is magic involved, it is inherently theatrical. Because there is a fantastical element to the story - this wildly unusual body swap - it lends itself to being theatrical." Alley Theatre plays host as the national tour comes to Houston next week with the story of a mother and daughter who swap bodies for 24 hours. The Disney musical was preceded by two popular movies (1976 and 2003), whose story and inspiration came from a widely read 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers.
