Which Broadway musical for 12-year-olds?

Jump to last reply

We're going to NYC in July and hoping to see a musical. We've seen a few musicals in regional theater productions, and we saw Wicked in Chicago, but we've never been to New York City before. It will be DH and I (both in our 40s) and our 12-year-old twins (boy and a girl). Our daughter loves musicals and theater; our son is, well, considerably more excited about the Yankees game he'll get to see. But I want the whole family to have the this experience.

So...which musical? Wicked again (we loved it before)? West Side Story, which I adore, but none of us speak Spanish? Others I'm considering are Billy Elliot, South Pacific, or Lion King. Would Lion King be too "babyish"? Maybe there is something else wonderful that I'm not even thinking of? All your advice is welcome. Thanks.
