I found the archetypal characters and the direct address of the stage manager really poignant. I loved the celebration of the best moments of life. Sometimes the actions and familiar details that really define us get lost in the day to day shuffle of our lives. Simple moments, stringing together the bigger events of our life, get overlooked. I feel the seeming acceleration of time very keenly right now as my girls transform before my eyes. I liked having the reminder to celebrate the small moments before they are gone.
