Best Shows in New York with Kids
NYC always has an amazing selection of Broadway Shows for Kids,like Aladdin,Lion King,Wicked,Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and School of Rock.The shows geared to kids tend to be just as much fun for adults,with grander sets and costumes,spectacular singing and choreography and overall,a very classic"Broadway"feel to them.
However,tickets are usually upwards of$100 each,which can add up for a family,shows are roughly 3 hours and children under the age of 4 are generally not permitted in theaters.If any of these seem like challenges for your family,then you MUST check out a New York Off Broadway Show,like Gazillion Bubble Show(photo above),Stomp or Blue Man Group.Tickets are much less money,more readily available and suitable for younger ages.
