New York City can be one of the best places to grow up, as much as it can be hectic and crowded it can be your child's classroom with so many opportunities to learn.  There are so many places to go, and so so many shows to attend.  I was able to take my kids to Endangered The Musical at the Davenport Theatre last week and thought it was a cute family-friendly production.  A musical enjoyable for ages 2 and up?  Why, yes!  Endangered The Musical is an adorable play to get children into live theater, featuring a fun and energetic cast of 8.  There are lots of dancing and singing going on to keep even the youngest children glued onto the performance.  For older kids and adults, it brings to light an important message about environmental issues in a lighthearted fun way.

The storyline keeps it current featuring a social media-savvy kid reporter Levi Lovewell, and a group of endangered animals from around the globe who work to survive a superstorm coming their way.  Lessons are learned, and working together is necessary.  The endangered animals in the musical play include Crankee the rockin' crocodile, Sita - the noble cheetah, Snoop the funky spotted skunk, Einstein the big bird brain, Bam Boo the superstar panda, and GLow the golden tamarin.   I loved their creative costumes, it left room for the imagination, it was fun to talk about which animals were portrayed with my children as we walked out the theater.  We can't forget the 8th cast member, reporter Jani Goodall, who was the glue between scenes.

There's dancing, singing, and great usage of the small space in the theater.  They did a great job in moving on from one scene to the next making sure to keep everyone's attention - even the youngest of the audience members.  My children are all very different from one another, I never know how they will react to a show - but I was happy to see all three of them enjoyed it.  My kids are 2, 4, and 9.  I think this is best for families with young children, but I did see quite a few groups of adults thoroughly enjoying the performance.  Lots of clapping, laughter, and a standing ovation in the end.  When your children walk out pretending the be the characters, asking questions, and leave inspired by the performance - you know it's a good one!
