This summer, don't miss the chance to see a free performance of PETE THE CAT the Musical at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in New York City. My children and I love reading the Pete the Cat books so when we were invited to see the show, we couldn't pass up the opportunity.
- Be sure to arrive about an hour before the show starts as the tickets are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
- No food or drinks are allowed inside the theater. Luckily, there are many places nearby to grab a drink or snack before or after the show. After the show, we headed over to the Sweet Corner Bakeshop (535 Hudson Street, on the corner of Hudson and Charles Street) for delicious cookies, mini eclairs and latte for this mama.
- Street parking is limited. Before leaving for the show, we booked a spot in a garage using the SpotHero app which made life a little easier with two kids in tow.
- Getting into the city: your best bet is to take public transportation to avoid the traffic coming home. If you're planning on spending a day in the city, take the NY Waterway ferry where kids under 12 ride free this summer. You can catch a complementary shuttle bus to the 34th Street subway station, and take the 1 (red) line downtown to Christopher Street. You can also take the PATH train from Hoboken or Jersey City to the Christopher Street stop.
