Off Broadway Shows for Kids

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.
