Metro Mama & Metro Baby

Living in New York City has certain cultural advantages for children, and access to theater is one of them. Take advantage of the city’s colorful theatrical offerings for kids and visit the Lucille Lortel Theater at 121 Christopher Street (near the corner of Hudson Street).

This well-established Greenwich Village theater has been catering to the under 15 crowd with offerings such as If You Give A Mouse A Cookie and Other Story Books, Junie B. Jones, and the Pirates of Penzance. The ticket prices are decidedly off-Broadway and very affordable for families. With Japanese drum shows, Great Expectations and Henry and Smudge coming this fall, you’ll want to treat your brood to one of the best things that New York City has to offer: live theater.

Enjoy a pre- or post theater meal at The Cowgirl Hall of Fame nearby, complete with a western toy and candy store within. Children will love the oversized meals and western décor, and parents will appreciate the fact that it’s loud and fun.

Visit www.lortel.org for a calendar of upcoming theatrical shows, or call 212-279-4200. Your budding thespians or contented kinder will thank you – it’s truly the stuff of great memories.
