NYC Show Thanksgiving Weekend

I will be in NYC with my sister and her young children (ages 8, 9, 11 and 13).

Could anyone recommend a show? Not Blue Man, as my son and I have seen the Tubes show 3 times.

Highly recommend How the Grinch Stole Christmas for the kids. Saw it last year - very fun and entertaining.

Grinch, Christmas Spectacular, any of the disney shows (poppins, lion king, lil mermaid) are all good choices. My top pick would be Mary Poppins.

Unlikely to find many discounts for that weekend though...but broadwaybox.com may have one. It can't hurt to check.

Thanks to everyone,

We've been to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and Blue Man Group. We loved Blue Man Group and thought that the Rockettes show was a yawner.

These kids are pretty sophisicated. Perhaps I erred in my post. I would like to take them to a show; not baby stuff and certainly not rated X.

Thanks again for all the help!

How about Stomp!? Are you familiar with this one? They have been touring, and in some big venues. But the NYC show is at the Orpheum Theater on 2nd Ave. in the East Village. This is not Broadway theater, but intensely entertaining and creative fun with rhythm and movement, with an emphasis on junk and other everyday objects. The kids will love it. The walls are decorated with garbage can lids, and all sorts of percussive stuff. They do rhythm and dance routines with push brooms, match books, sinks filled with water, and all sizes and shapes of barrels, buckets, containers, etc. If you liked Blue Man, you'll love Stomp.

I took my son when he was 8 years old, and he loved it so much he wanted to bring the rest of the family, which we did on a later trip to NYC. He would still be happy to see it again at the drop of a hat.

By the way, other than egetting on line for same day tix at TKTS, which I don't recommend, I doubt that there will be any discounts for Thanksgiving week. Expect to pay regular price, and buy tix in advance, or you may find that some of your choices have sold out. Foget about Lion King. It is sold out several months ahead. Likewsie any of the new shows.

How about The Producers, Monty Python's Holy Grail, Hairspray?
