One of my personal highlights of 2012 was taking a Daddy/Daughter trip to New York City and finally seeing a Broadway Show. Sitting in the front row of the Mezzanine with my girls watching Disney’s Newsies is a memory I’ll have forever. Of course, it’s not cheap to take the family to Broadway, and you need to take advantage of deals to make it happen. One of the best deals out there is NYC Broadway Week, September 2-15, 2013, with 2-for-1 tickets to almost 19 Broadway shows. There are many family options including the Disney Theatrical offerings of Newsies and The Lion King, as well as non-Disney shows such as Annie, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
