Big Apple Circus: Luminocity; ends January 12
This year's beloved circus show, filled with trapeze artists, acrobats, jugglers, clowns and animal acts, is set in NYC—and is as riveting as ever.
"Tweet"; closes January 26
This sweet exhibition of birds by an array of artists, at the Children's Museum of the Arts, is meant to inspire kids to look at nature as much as they look at screens.
When the shortest day is nearly upon us, we know it's time to figure out all the last-chance shows in NYC we need to get to before they're gone for good. Winter break is the ideal time to do some theatergoing and museumhopping, which you'll realize when you find out what's closing on the last weekend of December, including holiday exhibits like the "Grinch's Holiday Workshop" and A Christmas Story, The Musical, and the first weekend of January: "The Art of the Brick," "Frogs, A Chorus of Colors" and a whole lot more. We've rounded up 18 family-friendly last-chance exhibitions and theatrical shows in NYC, all closing by the end of January, that you and the kids shouldn't miss. Click through our slide show below for inspiration. Even if you only get to one or two, we promise: You'll be so glad you did.
