These Broadway shows are perfect for family outings because they will entertain both children and parents alike. It is recommended that children be at least 6 years old before you bring them to Broadway shows -- it's important that your children don't disrupt other audience members or misbehave during the performance.
Keep in mind, all people in your party (regardless of age) will need their own ticket, but there are many ways to save on Broadway tickets. In January and February, Kids' Nights on Broadway offer adults a free ticket for children 6-18 with each full-paying adult ticket.
