In Pinkalicious The Musical, Pinkalicious can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe – a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this predicament.
Pinkalicious The Musical debuted at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre in New York on January 13, 2007, in a Vital Theatre Company production directed by Suzu McConnell-Wood.
