Off Broadway Shows for Kids
Husband and wife duo Fan and Ana Yang have traveled world-wide to dazzle their audiences with their self-titled masterpiece, "bubble artistry." As lights flicker and music plays, prepare to catch some of the wonkiest looking bubbles you've ever encountered. Kids and parents alike will love how these soapy spectacles create a can't-miss experience. Ages 5 and up.
The town of Whooville is holly jolly when the holidays hit...well, almost everyone in Whoville. Our beloved green scrooge—the Grinch—comes to life on stage as he tries to hijack the Christmas festivities in his town. It'll take one sweet little girl to show him what the season is all about. Wintertime is incomplete with without this Dr. Seuss classic. Ages 5 and up.
A sea of toilet paper, neon paint splashes and three blue men have kept audiences laughing and amazed in this long-running Off-Broadway hit. Stand by as these other-worldly fellows learn about the environment around them...and make a bit of noise in the process (largely thanks to the large tubs of paint). You'll laugh, you'll catch one of the group members in the audience and you'll love the wonky happenings throughout the performance. If you catch a show in the first row, wear the poncho—chances are you're going to get splattered with something! Ages 5 and up.
Love Harry Potter? This one's for you. If you're a fan of witchcraft and wizardry, Puffs will take you back to that certain school, only this time the focus isn't on Harry—it's on the other kids who aren't destined for an epic story...but they'll certainly provide plenty of laughs along the way. All matinee showings of Puffs are family-friendly. All ages.
Stomp takes percussion to a whole new level. A small cast of characters makes use of atypical objects—wooden polls, push brooms—to create a unique musical experience. A catchy rhythm, impressive dance moves and laugh-out-loud moments prove why this Off-Broadway show is such a crowd pleaser, even if there isn't any dialogue. Your kiddos might be inspired to take household items and start a jam session of their own! Ages 4 and up.
