Broadway Courts Kids

Broadway producers worried about developing a next generation of theatre fans are concentrating on more programs for kids. “Family fare has taken off on Broadway (think “The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast”), and a survey from the League of American Theaters and Producers shows that the number of kids filling seats is up slightly. In the 2003-2004 season, the league reports that nearly 1.3 million kids under 18 attended shows, the second highest turnout in more than 20 years (the highest was in 2000-01 season).”
