By the end of the year, five of our top 10 Broadway shows for kids will have closed, including longtime favorite Matilda. But the good news is, the family shows must go on!
This spring, a pair of highly anticipated new musicals based on beloved children's properties are heading to NYC: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, inspired by both Roald Dahl's iconic book and the classic 1971 flick; and Anastasia, based on the 1997 animated movie about a Russian orphan who may be royalty. Although performances for both productions don't start until March, tickets already are on sale and make for amazing experiential holiday gifts the whole family can enjoy (even you, mom and dad).
We've got the scoop on these two kid-centric tuners and why they should make your 2017 bucket list.
