My kids love the movie. So when we heard it was going to be a Broadway show. We were thrilled. It opened earlier this year to good reviews. And friends who saw it said it was great. So we planned on taking them early next year. But, then we found out it was closing December 31. So we called and was able to get good seats (I guess that is why its closing). But, if you are a fan of the movie and live near NYC. I definitely recommend going to see this before it closes. The kids, my wife and I all loved it. Their are some slight changes to the story..but, it all works great.
