    An Ugly Duckling Gets Her Ginger Up Over Fitting In

    Laurel Graeber

    October 19, 2010: It’s hard to imagine that the actress Julianne Moore was ever an ugly duckling. And she wasn’t, exactly: she was a freckleface strawberry. You learn this from Ms. Moore’s picture books about a spunky 7-year-old redhead who acquires that nickname from her teasing classmates. Now Rose Caiola and Gary Kupper have turned Ms. Moore’s first book, “Freckleface Strawberry,” into a 70-minute musical that teaches — no surprise — that everyone harbors self-doubt and that differences, like a peppering of freckles, add spice to the world.

    Melissa Gerstein, Raina Seitel Gittlin and Denise Albert

    September 24, 2010: It’s one thing to think back on our own childhood and remember any insecurities we may have had. But it’s a tougher pill to swallow when we think about our own children facing insecurities, labels, and stereotypes as they grow up.

    Stage Door: The Divine Sister, The Screwtape Letters, Freckleface Strawberry

    Fern Siegel

    October 15, 2010: By contrast, Freckleface Strawberry the musical based on the best-selling children's book by Julianne Moore, is wholly earthbound. The one-hour production at New World Stages is charming and conveys a powerful social message: be comfortable in your own skin. Strawberry (Hayley Podschun), a youngster teased for her red hair and freckles, longs to fit in. Her "I Hate Freckles!" number is adorable; so are her friends.

    October 1, 2010: It takes a lot to arrest the attention of a tot. Colors need to dazzle; sounds need to pop.
