Sesame Street Live at Iowa Events Center Review

Every kid watches Sesame Street, right?

Believe it or not, my daughter has rarely watched Sesame Street! However, this Elmo obsession surfaced a few years ago. One video borrowed for a road trip was all it took and she was an Elmo girl.

Even though she’s three now and her adoration is for Rapunzel, Cinderella, Sofia and every other princess, we jumped at the chance to see Sesame Street Live at the Iowa Events Center downtown yesterday!

There were familiar songs we all recognize and enjoy singing and the storyline was endearing. A new friend (aka Jenny the music teacher) moves into the neighborhood and the characters discover that everything in the world is ‘music’ and we can make it with our hands, feet, and everyday objects like Bert’s pop bottles, Ocscar’s trash can, or Cookie Monster’s cookie jar!

My sweet girl adored every part of it and was singing and dancing the whole time. She loved the audience interaction and when the characters came down into the crowd!

Whether your kids are 3 or 13 – it’s sure to be a good time!

Be sure to catch the magic today and tomorrow during these performance times:
