You want to go see a Broadway show in New York with your kids but you want to be sure it will be appropriate for the age of your children? Here is a list of five Broadway musicals I recommend to parents. I hope it will help you to make up your mind!
This is one of the best Broadway musicals and it is the show that most families choose. With The Lion King, you have no reason to doubt, the story is known by everyone so your children will have no problem to understand, even if they don’t speak English (Note for myself: for English post, write “even the youngest ones”). Dont fear to see your children falling asleep half way though or complaining because the show is too long! The 2:45 (including intermission) will fly by and both adults and children will be breath-taken by the constantly moving stage and its wonderful decorations. The dancers beautifully dressed up as the animals of the savanna will take you to the wild Africa and the happy characters will make you laugh with their funny behavior during the whole the show.
Important note: The theater does not allow the entrance to children less than 4 years old.
When we speak of Cinderella, the first words that come to our mind are: romance, love story, prince and princess dress of course! So this is the perfect opportunity for mothers to take their children to the theater and to share beautiful moments of complicity and tenderness. The magic of Broadway and the history of this famous fairy tale mixed together will give you chills and make you dream for over two hours … Also be prepared for few surprises in this Broadway musical as it is actually Cinderella who saves the prince!
Matilda is a mind-blowing musical! The children take control and it is a real mess, nothing can stop them! No need to tell you that your children will love it 😉
