Warning: The already atrocious parking at The Grove will be much, much worse on May 7.
That’s when the American Girl Place will hold an open casting call for every would-be Felicity, Samantha and Molly.
Casting agents for Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery, starring Abigail Breslin will audition girls for the HBO Films production — the first theatrical film based on an American Girl doll.
Our position on American Girl dolls is well-documented. Our position on feature films based on the cult-like obsessions of schoolgirls is less well-known, and less well-formed.
Could a script by Ann Peacock (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) about “the clever and resourceful Kit Kittredge, a nine-year-old girl growing up in 1934 during Americaâ€™s Great Depression” be any good?
We don’t have high hopes. But at least we have advance warning about the parking.
