MOST RECENT

There are lots of new shows on our radar over the next few months. We want to make sure they are on YOUR radar too! The first one we want to remind you about is Disney Junior Dance Party, at the Beacon Theatre Sat/Sun Sept 15-16 with 3 performances. We gave you the heads up about presale back in April, but if you missed out, dont worry - there are still plenty of balcony tickets remaining for each performance and a few in the orchestra and mezzanine too. Head over to the link in our bio to purchase tickets. We saw this show earlier in the year - read on for our Petite Seat Tips:
.
💃The performance included friends (both in person and on-screen) and music from Mickey and the Roadster Racers, Puppy Dog Pals, The Lion Guard, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, Elena of Avalor, Vampirina and Muppet Babies. Disney just announced last week that Fancy Nancy will be joining the tour as well (our kids are super excited about this!).
.
💃 When we saw the show, it was just under 90 minutes long with no intermission. The vibe was very family friendly, we saw lots of kids who only just met that day dancing together in the aisles.
.
💃 The show is designed to be a child's first concert experience, and while we recommend the show for ages 2-6, any fan of Disney Junior television shows will have a great time.

It may be sweltering outside but believe it our not, presale tickets to The Radio City Rockette's Christmas Spectacular tickets are now available. Grab your tickets to this year's show before they go onsale to the general publc - now through August 21st.
.

You can visit the link in our bio 🔗 and use code PRECS to view available performances and seats - most days have several time options to choose from and performances are scheduled on all major holidays, too.
.

This year the Christmas Spectacular will be run from November 9th through January 1st.
.
Here are a few Petite Seat tips to help you plan your visit:
.
🎅 Radio City is quite large, and ticket prices can vary quite a bit from section to section, but there are benefits to sitting in each section. Want to catch confetti, sit in the orchestra! Want to have a great view of the floating snowflakes, sit in the Mezzanine. Want to have an amazing view of the precise choreography, sit in the 2nd and 3rd Mezzanine.
.
🎅The show runs for 90 minutes with no intermission.
.
🎅 All children ages 2+ require their own ticket.
.
🎅 Plan to arrive 45 MIN - ONE HOUR before the performance time. Security lines are long, and do take some time to get through.
.
🎅Stroller check is available when you arrive into the theatre.

The first show to ALWAYS sell out during Broadway week over the last few years is THE LION KING. A combination of limited number of tickets available, and the fact that this is the ONLY discount available for this show, results in tickets selling out in the first couple of hours. If you are thinking about using this sale to buy tickets for The Lion King, make sure you log on to purchase when the sale begins - usually around 10:30am (this Wednesday!). Here are some Petite Seat Tips about the show:
.
🦁 We recommend this show for ages 6+ due to some of the themes, as well as the overall length of the show.
.
🦁 The show runs 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.
.
🦁 The show begins with a parade of large puppet animals going down the center orchestra aisles. You can still see them in the mezzanine, but nothing compares to seeing them walk by you in the orchestra.
.
🦁 The darker themes and moments from the movie are present in the stage version (Simba's father, Mufasa, dies, and Simba is ultimately accused), so parents of more sensitive children may want to wait beyond the age recommendation if these are tricky topics.
.
🦁 Booster seats are available - see an usher when you take your seat. All children regardless of age are required to have a ticket.

Last year, we took advantage of the Broadway Week sale to revisit WICKED. If you're thinking of doing the same, here is a summary, along with our Petite Seat Tips for this show:
.
SUMMARY:
Long before Dorothy arrives in Oz, this story centers on Elphaba, the misunderstood, smart, and fiery girl of emerald-green skin who grows up to become the notorious Wicked Witch of the West and Galinda, the beautiful, blonde, popular girl who grows up to become Glinda the Good Witch of the South.
.
💚 In past seasons, this show sells out quickly for Broadway Week. Purchase early for best selection of dates and seats.
.
💚 We recommend Wicked for Ages 8+. Some of the scenes can be a little scary for younger audiences (some very loud noises in Act II Oz), and the plot is a bit complex.
.
💚 The show runs approx 2 hours and 40 minutes. If you plan to attend an evening performances, look for 7pm start times.
.
💚 Our seats were in the rear orchestra, which we felt was an excellent value for this show. This area of the theatre is elevated more than the front orchestra, so we had a great view.
.
💚 Chances are, if you're considering taking your child to Wicked, they are already familiar with some of the music, but as always, prep them with the soundtrack - it will make you "Pop-U-Lar!" ;-)

When it comes to Broadway's longest running musical “family friendly" may not immediately come to mind. But for the most part, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is appropriate for kids ages 10+. The plot centers around the Phantom who terrorizes the opera house and actors so it may be somewhat frightening for younger children but if you haven't taken your older kids to see this show yet, Broadway Week might be a great opportunity to do so. This show has been on past year's sales and we expect it to be there again this year!
.
If you are trying to decide between how to use your matinee time slot for Broadway Week, good news, this show schedule differs a bit from the traditional Broadway schedule. Phantom offers Thursday matinees each week (instead of Wednesday, like most others). Which means you may have time for two Matinee shows during Broadway Week! .
Petite Seat Tip: A little prep work for this show will go a long way - be sure to have your kids listen to the music ahead of time, and read a synopsis of the plot.

If you thought "Site Specific, Immersive Theatre" was only for adults, think again! Out of the Box Theatrics is bringing this musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland to, where else, Alice's Tea Cup! Alice in Alice's is performed by 4 actors upstairs at the well known tea restaurant. Performances begin this Saturday (weekends are at 9am - perfect breakfast time with the kids!) and it runs through Sept 9th. We plan to check it out soon, but in the meantime, here are some tips we've gathered in advance - we will update with any new info once we see it! Click on the temp link in our bio for more info and to purchase tickets. Special Offer: Take $4 off using code WB2018.
.
☕ The performance runs 45 minutes and is best suited for ages 5+. If you recall the story, the part with the Queen ("Off with their heads!") might be a bit much for younger audiences.
.
☕ This is an intimate venue, and audience members will be active participants in the storytelling!
.
☕ All ticket prices include a scone and a cup of tea
.
☕ Strollers will be accommodated inside, but please bring one that can fold for easy storage
.
☕ Out of the Box Theatrics features actors with various disabilities, with the goal of showcasing the true demographics of our city.

This afternoon (thanks to our trip to TKTS yesterday), we revisited SCHOOL OF ROCK. We are nearly certain this show will participate in Broadway Week, so if you're thinking of checking it out - now is a great time - it's closing January 20th! Read on for a summary, and some Petite Seat Tips you should know:
.
SUMMARY:
Based on the film, the show follows Dewey, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into grade-A rockers. The musical features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie, and Broadway’s first-ever live kids rock band.
.
🎸 The super talented kids onstage are all playing their instruments live. And they are awesome! I basically came home and signed my son up for a drum lesson 🥁.
.
🎸 This show is very rock-music focused (naturally), and can be very loud at times.
.
🎸 While the show features many kids, some of the language can be a bit lewd and somewhat abrasive - it feels very PG-13. Dewey is far from a model citizen... We recommend it for Ages 7+.
.
🎸 The mezzanine offers great views of the stage, but avoid the far sides - it's a very wide theatre. Check the back of the theatre for booster seats.
.

We've talked about TKTS before, and how it's a great way to see shows at a discounted price, but we're going to break it down one step further! There are multiple TKTS booths around NYC, not just the iconic one in Times Square. Today, we decided to head over to the booth at Lincoln Center for the first time! Here are some tips we picked up along the way:
.
🎟 The Lincoln Center TKTS Booth isn't actually IN Lincoln Center. We wish we looked at our map before walking around the entire complex in this heat! It's actually indoors, in an atrium on the other side of Columbus Ave, in between PJ Clarke's and Rosa Mexicano.
.
🎟 The LC TKTS Booth is indoors! So when the weather is too hot, too cold, or too rainy to stand on line in Times Square, this is by far the more comfortable option! The line is not very long either - we only had one couple in front of us!
.
🎟 The LC TKTS Booth sells matinee tickets one day in advance (Times Square is only day-of). Today, we purchased tickets for a matinee tomorrow afternoon.
.
🎟 As of this week, this ticketing center is showing the discounts for each show in both % off, as well as actual prices, making on the spot decisions easier.
.
🎟 As a reminder, with all TKTS locations, download the TKTS App to find out what shows are listed at each booth before you head out.

Before there was Frozen, Disney's High School Musical was all every kid was talking about. The movie was adapted into a 90 minute stage musical, and this week, it begins performances right here on 42nd St! Click on the link in our bio to purchase tickets, and see below for our Petite Seat Tips!
.

A plot refresher:
Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, peer pressure, and balancing their classes and extracurricular activities. Can you be an all-star jock and thespian in the school musical, or do you have to “stick to the status quo”?
.

Petite Seat Tips:
.
🏀 Performances are Thursday, Aug 9th through Sunday, August 26th at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd St).
.
🏀 Recommended for Ages 4+, but probably best suited for 8+ due to some of the more mature themes of teen crushes, and peer pressure. The show runs 90 minutes with no intermission.
.
🏀 The production features 2 rotating casts of talented kids and teens from KOTA (Kids of the Arts). Many of these performers go on to have roles on National Tours, and Broadway (so you can say you saw them first!).

After a brief hiatus, Pinkalicious The Musical will be re-opening on August 25th at a different venue. This production, the same as the one we've shared over the last few months, is moving to St. Luke's Theatre on West 46th Street. Tickets are on-sale now for 11am performances on selected Sundays through November. This production is approx 60 minutes with no intermission and best for ages 2-7.
.
Visit telechargeoffers.com and use code VTCPKSL29 for $25 tickets!
.
Here are a few Petite Seat tips on this venue, in case this will be your first visit to St. Luke’s:
.
🌼 Seating is General Admission and first come first served. Arrive early for best seats - the seats in this theatre are not elevated, so little ones may have a hard time seeing all of the action from further away.
.
🌼 Stroller parking is available but you will have to navigate it down approx 10 stairs. The theatre itself is not handicapped accessible.
.
🌼 This new venue will still include the after show meet and greet with the cast for autographs and photos.
.

We are still a few days away from knowing what shows will be offered in this year’s Broadway Week sale but we wanted to continue to highlight some of the shows that we haven’t mentioned recently in hopes that they’ll be included in the sale and to help you pick the right fit for your family. Next up: Anastasia.
.
Anastasia the musical follows closely to the film: A brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.
.
Though this is a family show, there are some dark undertones of Anastasia's backstory, so this one is really best suited for Ages 8+.
.
Read on below for some more specific notes on the plot to help you decide if this is a good fit for your children (includes some very minor spoilers):
.
👸 There is a scene upfront when Anastasia's family is murdered, it happens off stage but there are some loud sounds and ominous lighting. It is never said outright but it is implied what is happening.
.
👸 Flashbacks to the scene mentioned above happen throughout the show.
.
👸 A scene in Act II involves a gun, but the gun is never fired.
.

#FBF Earlier this week we had another chance to check out this year's Tony winner for Best Musical Revival, Once on This Island. Our experience was much the same as that a few months ago--lots of fun, amazing storytelling, gorgeous set and stellar vocals. It was a great way to spend an evening on Broadway. .
We won't know for sure for another week and half, but we would suspect this show might make it to the Broadway Week 2 for 1 Sale on August 15. Either way, here are a few Petite Seat's tips for when you do see this show.
.
🌴We recommend this show for ages 10+ for some adult content and slightly intense scenes
🌴The show is 90 minutes with no intermission
🌴This is a very small theatre and all seats feel close to the stage and have excellent views
🌴Be sure to take your seats early - there is some pre show entertainment that you won't want to miss
