KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!

The Hippodrome Broadway Series Family Guide

We believe that sharing theatre with children can be a life-changing experience, but some shows are more family friendly than others. Our guidelines below can give you a general idea of what might be appropriate, but you know your child best. Parents and guardians should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. If you have questions or want to talk further about any show’s content, please call us at 800.343.3103 (M-F, 9am to 5pm).

Please note - all guests require a ticket, regardless of age. We generally recommend that children be at least six years old to attend a Broadway show. If your child can pay attention to a full-length movie at the cinema, he or she will probably enjoy a theatrical event. For younger children, consider a Hippodrome Live show (performances added regularly).
