Lincoln Center is a creative city within the boundaries of New York and is home to the Metropolitan Opera House, The New York City Ballet, The David Geffen Concert Hall, Lincoln Center Theater, and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. In the winter it hosts the Big Apple Circus. Summertime launches a variety of outdoor performances and dances popular with the general public.
During the 2015-2016 season Kids at Lincoln Center will present performances for kids of all ages. Here are some this season’s highlights:
Contemporary kids will particularly enjoy this international production with roots in Canada and Germany. It’s a surreal, funny, yet emotional story that encourages audiences to question their perception of reality. This live performance integrates video projection and creative theater craft.
Eric Litwin is a gifted author and musician presenting his delightful show at The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. His sing-a-long book reading features the antics of Hazel Nut, a playful young girl, and her disco-dancing grandma.
It’s one thing to experience a live performance when you’re sitting in the audience and watching the stage from your seat. It’s a completely different experience when you’re guided through the show by a talented host. At this performance audience, members will interact with singer Kenny Washington and storyteller Allan Harris as they explore the magic of the human voice performance.
