“Celebrating every girl as the hero of her own story”
American Girl Live is Coming To A City Near You! 
Every girl is the hero of her own story. That’s just one of the inspiring messages you can expect to hear when American Girl Live hits the stage this December to begin its nationwide tour.  It’s also the mantra of the all-female creative team behind this entirely new production. There has never been a more perfect time for American Girl Live to hit the road! Excitement and anticipation is building for the upcoming stage production that shares a story of perseverance, inspired by the stories, characters, and values that are the heart of American Girl.
Experience American Girl ® in an all-new musical. American Girl Live is a premiere stage production, featuring all original songs and unforgettable experiences inspired by six popular characters from American Girl: Rebecca (1914), Nanea (1941), Maryellen (1954), Melody (1964), Julie (1974), and Luciana (2018). During an exciting summer away at sleepover camp–as bold tales of bravery and friendship come to life for some new friends–iconic American Girl characters lend a hand through story and song. American Girl Live will bring girls and their family members and friends together, inspiring them to follow their hearts, share their dreams, and learn the power of friendship.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
