We love Union Square Park’s Summer in the Square series for its awesome lineup of free kid-friendly performances, and the schedule for Thursday, June 27 promises a very special concert by none other than kindie superstar Laurie Berkner. At 10:45am, Berkner, who penned the music and lyrics for the family musical Wanda’s Monster, will perform songs like “Monster Boogie” with the show’s cast. Wanda’s Monster, which premiered at Theater Three earlier this year, will return for its second run on July 13 at Union Square’s Vineyard Theatre. The musical is based on the book by Eileen Spinelli and tells the story of a young girl named Wanda who befriends a fuzzy purple monster. Catch the preview this Thursday, then see the complete performance, which will run at Vineyard Theatre through September 8.
