    I caught a reading of BALLET FOR ALIENS this past weekend, it's an incredibly imaginative, touching, and funny new short play for young audiences. The characters are complex and captivating, my kids and I both wanted to spend more time with them. The play also doesn't shy away from complicated/hard topics, like fear of needles and living with a Chronic illness, nor does it ever talk down to children.
