My daughter Lily and I had the opportunity to see Stuart Little at the IRT on Saturday morning. With a run time of a little over an hour (65 minutes, with no intermission), this theater performance was perfect for my 5 year old! Most guests sit on carpeted floor or for a little more, you can purchase chair seating. I personally think the floor seating was perfect for my wiggly one! The stage and carpeted area are all on the same level so you really feel like you’re involved in the play. It is important for guests to stay on the green carpeting and not on the surrounding tan walkways so that the actors can move around and interact with your child during the play. At the end of the performance, children and adults are invited to do a quick activity, meet the actors and take photos in the stage area.
The price for the performance can’t be beat. Floor seating is $8, adults are $15 and all chair seating is $20. Affordable parking is available at the Circle Center Mall (about a block walk) or you can valet right out front. The show runs Saturdays (10am and 1pm) and Sundays (1pm and 3pm) until March 26. Check out the IRT website for more information.
