BWW Reviews: HOW I BECAME A PIRATE Offers Swashbuckling Delight
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Sep 23, 2014

Almost all children (and not a few adults) have a fascination with all things piratical, and the musical HOW I BECAME A PIRATE, currently in production at Columbia Children's Theatre through September 28, yields plenty of material to indulge that fascination. This fun offering, written by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, based on the popular children's book of the same name by Melinda Long, has plenty to engage children and also keep their parents smiling broadly throughout the approximate one-hour running time. Young children will take this fantastic journey into the world of (not-so-scary) pirates at face value, perhaps even responding directly to the actors, while their older siblings and adults will appreciate the sly humor and send-up of buccaneer lore.
