Grab a Playbill, make yourself comfortable and enjoy the show! NYC's best plays for kids promise a fun night out for the whole family. 

There's a lot to love about the Broadway scene right now—wizzards and muggles will do anything for a sneak peek at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and "grool" fans of Cadie and the Plastics will love Mean Girls more than Regina loves being Queen Bee. 

Plus, there are fantastic Off-Broadway and puppet show selections if you're looking for something a bit different. Chances are, you're going to want to explore all the options possible (and we can't blame you)!

After you've caught up on the best plays for kids in New York (and got your tickets here), make sure to grab a post-theater dinner at one of these fun restaurants, explore some of the best family attractions the city has to offer and finish your adventures by watching the best family movies on Netflix.
