Sesame Street Live Review

*Disclosure: I was given tickets to facilitate this review. No other compensation was given. All opinions are 100% my own. Full policy here
I took my youngest daughter to see Sesame Street Live "Make a New Friend" at the Fox Theatre this weekend. This show gives children an opportunity to learn about a different culture and learn how to be a good friend, while having a fun time, too!

My daughter is 8 years old, so she was one of the older kids there. But, I think she really appreciates the story line and music more as she gets older. Although, I did see a baby in front of us dancing along on his dad's lap. They sang some popular songs, with parody lyrics, so that was funny. 
We were in row P & as you can see we had a great view.
One of my daughter's favorite things is the confetti & streamers, she collected some to bring home as souvenirs. Another thing that was really cool is that the characters walked down all the aisles into the audience sections. Try to get an aisle seat for your little one if you can. 
This is a big stage production with multiple background scenes, impressive lighting displays, costume changes, & more. My middle child is in theater, so I know how much work goes into these shows. I can picture her some day growing up to be a character in Sesame Street Live.

While we were in Detroit we ate dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. I like that you can park in the Compuware garage for free when you get it validated at Hard Rock. Also, the Hard Rock offers a bus service which will take you to local events, including the Fox Theatre. I just called the bus driver when the show was over and he picked us up quickly to take us right back to the garage.
I know your family will have a fun time at Sesame Street Live, just like we did. Check out my previous Sesame Street Live post here
