Broadway Shows


NOV 5, 2019

One of the most iconic things to do in New York City is to go see a show on Broadway. It is one of my favorite memories from when my family took a trip there when I was in high school. There's something inspiring and exciting about watching performers live - and watching Mary Poppins on Broadway was no exception.

Here's the top four most popular kid-friendly shows that are currently running:

1. The Lion King

This show has been on Broadway since 1997 - just three years after the movie was originally released. It is the third longest running show on Broadway. It's the highest grossing Broadway show of all time.

2. Wicked

This show is basically a prequel to the Wizard of Oz. It tells the story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. It is the fifth longest running show on Broadway and known for its musical hits.

3. Aladdin

This show started on Broadway in 2014, but critics say it boasts some of the most beautiful costumes and set designs of all shows. 

4. Frozen

This show just started in 2018 on Broadway. The movie was a hit with kids and the songs were a big part of that. The Broadway version has a lot more songs. Reviews say the special effects of this show are magical.

If you are in New York City, Broadway is an iconic treat - whatever show you choose, you are sure to make great memories as a family!
