what show for 8 year old

I'm planning a trip to NYC with my 8 year old daughter. I'm wondering what shows everyone suggests. She has seen Mary Poppins already and loved it. So i'm looking for another suggestion.

Thanks!

Maura

Mamma Mia , great show with lots of singing and dancing from the audience,

good ticket special on www.broadwaybox.com at the moment with $40 off tickets ( I got centre front row mezz ), or check out other specials they have.

What about "Anything Goes" or "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" (with Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe!)?

Both are classics and have grown-up story lines, not raunchy, but not childish, easy to follow and have singable tunes.

We went to see the Blue Man Group. Our 8 year old son loved the show! No to mention his parents... who thought it was really neat/awesome!

"i was wondering about mamma mia. my daughter is actually doing mamma mia for her drama class."

Your eight-year-old daughter is doing a play whose plot hinges on a woman's being so casually promiscuous that she can't tell which of three men is the father of her child???????
