Lion King, Wicked, Harry Potter and More!

Shows for 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.

Ticketing Options - Broadway Theatre is transformed into a club and the audience is immersed in the show, so Here Lies Love is completely different than the usual Broadway watching and the ticket options are different.

  • Floor (Standing) – Stand on the dance floor (no seats). Dancing is encouraged. You'll be guided around the performance space throughout the 90-minute show and will stand and move with the actors.

  • Rear Mezzanine – Seated in a theater seat with a panoramic view of the action. The most traditional, familiar experience for theatergoers.
  • VIP Lounge – An exclusive premium experience where the entire show is performed right in front of you, within a closed lounge space with a private bar.

Off Broadway Shows for Kids

Broadway show 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.
