Sesame Street Live – Review & Last Minute Ticket Giveaway!!
Last weekend my family and I got on a train to New York City to go see Sesame Street Live at Madison Square Garden. While I knew my two-year-old would be thrilled at seeing his favorite characters, Elmo, Cookie Monster and all of their friends, I wasn’t sure how my five-year-old would be able to sit through what he dubbed as “my brothers favorite show”. Not to my surprise, though, he became just as excited (if not more so) the second he saw the first Sesame Street Live poster at the entrance to MSG.
From the moment we entered the theater until their final bows, every character in the show had both of my boys (and parents) dancing and singing along.
Sesame Street Live Presents Make a New Friend, which is a show that everyone from your babies to your biggest kids (or kids at heart) will have a blast watching.
What I love about Sesame Street is that you don’t even realize that there are lessons being taught because you’re so busy having fun watching all of the characters. Through this performance, my children not only had the chance to learn math, new words, and some new songs and dances, but they also learned some valuable lessons about people of other cultures and ethnic backgrounds. (for a full description of the show see our previous post here).
Don’t be surprised if you see children of all ages dancing in their seats and in the isles, as this interactive performance really knows how to draw you in. Side note: There are also tons of souvenirs that you can purchase, so don’t forget to bring a little extra spending money!
My five-year-old son still talks about Grover’s friend, Chamki, and how much fun it was to see her dancing and riding an elephant. Both of my children request to do the Elmo slide almost daily now. Sesame Street Live truly was a memorable and fun filled experience for everyone. This weekend, I suggest you warm up with all of the well known characters and even some new friends at Sesame Street Live, in NYC.
