“Sesame St: The Musical” features Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Grover, along with other characters beloved by generations

A series of off-Broadway shows stars Elmo and Cookie Monster, Grover, and other beloved “Sesame St” characters loved by generations.

Jonathan Rockefeller, director, and producer, created “Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation” last season before he moved to Muppets.

“As you sit in the audience, you can hear Cookie Monster and Rubber Ducky and also see Rosita strumming a violin. Rockefeller said that it was truly magical.

Sesame Workshop celebrated earlier this year the fifth anniversary of its “Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children” initiative.

The musical will host sensory-friendly performances at 11 a.m. on Oct. 19th and Nov. 16th.

“We have the lights at just the right levels. Rockefeller stated that the sound levels are set at the right level so there is no sensory overload. They are truly special performances. People are overjoyed to be able to bring their entire family along.

We see 2-year-olds and 4-year-olds. And we also see 8-year-olds being dragged along by their younger brother. They end up enjoying it even though they may resist at first. Rockefeller said that they dance and sing along as much as everyone else. “We call Saturdays our unofficial nostalgia evening, where adults don’t bring their children because it’s just a date night or some fun with friends.

Through Nov. 27, “Sesame Street” will be playing at Theater Row, West 42nd Street. The runtime is 1 hour.
