The shutfown of live performance in New York City was rough on kids who love to see shows on stage. But theater is back now, including many great options for budding stage buffs.  Whether it's at a Disney movie come to life on Broadway or a classic story in a small Off Broadway house, children of all ages can find something to love. At the best shows for kids in NYC, get comfy in your seat and kick back for songs, dance numbers, puppets, stage effects and storytelling at its finest. 

Some rules are still in place to promote the safety of audience members and theater employees alike. Stock up on masks in case they are required, and be sure you check in advance to see what vaccination or negative tests you may need to provide. Other than that, all you and your kids need to do is enjoy and applaud.
