What to Consider When Choosing a Broadway Show for Kids
When you plan your Broadway visit with your kids, you should consider:
- Your Kids Age: Consider the age of your children before selecting a Broadway show. Are they all teens? Are they under the age of 10? Some Broadway shows may be appropriate for teens but not for younger kids (because of language or complex plot). Each theater/show has its own policy regarding the minimum age of children allowed into the theater. There are also special discounts for Broadway shows for kids, for example in February 2012, Kids Night on Broadway offered a free Broadway ticket for children aged 6-18 when accompanied by a full-paying adult.
- Match the Broadway Show to Your Kid's Interests: Some Broadway shows are perfect for kids who like super heroes, for example: Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark Broadway. In addition, Disney on Broadway offers shows like The Lion King Broadway and Mary Poppins, which are a children musical favorite among parents too.
- Off-Broadway Kids Theater: You can also find Off-Broadway theater shows that are suitable for kids, such as: The Blue Man Group, and others
