Freaky Friday is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day. An overworked mother and her teenage daughter have one thing in common — they don’t relate to each other on anything. When they wake up to discover they have magically switched bodies, each is forced to adapt to the other’s life, literally walking in each other’s shoes, for one freaky Friday. The mom’s wedding is Saturday, and the two must find a way to switch back – fast. This is a delightfully entertaining new musical for anyone with a perfectly imperfect family.
