The Sesame Street musical blends time-honored parts of the TV show with new elements. New, stage-specific tunes join the classic Sesame Street songs for the Off-Broadway production. And everyone's favorite characters are there — you'll also see Abby Cadabby, Rosita, Bert, Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, The Count, and more — as well as special guest stars.

The world premiere of Sesame Street: The Musical off Broadway marks the first major stage musical in New York based on the TV show. The show's history goes way back, though: Sesame Street: The Musical premiered on PBS in 1969 and still runs on the channel today, in addition to HBO and HBO Max. It's on its 53rd season and continues to delight young audiences, changing with the times to keep teaching kids new things.

The characters in Sesame Street on TV and Sesame Street: The Musical are Muppets, and the most famous original ones, like Elmo, were created by puppetry icon Jim Henson. The Emmy Award-winning creator also produced The Muppet Show and other beloved puppet properties, and true to his legacy, Sesame Street: The Musical includes lots of puppetry in his style to represent the characters on stage.

What to Watch For

  • There is an actual Sesame Street in NYC, but it's a little farther north from where the Sesame Street musical is happening. The stretch of 62nd Street between Central Park West and Broadway is called Sesame Street!
  • The Sesame Street TV show holds lots of records. It's one of the longest-running TV shows of all time, and it's the most-awarded children's show of all time, with 11 Grammys and 214 Emmys. Maybe the musical will earn Sesame Street another Grammy!
  • Sesame Street off Broadway is created by Rockefeller Productions, which is renowned for its puppet-filled children's productions. It's the same company behind the critically acclaimed Winnie the Pooh: The Musical, also at Theatre Row. When bringing beloved puppets like the Muppets to life on stage, you've got to get the best!
  • Celebrity guests have always been a part of Sesame Street on TV. We don't know who the guests at Sesame Street: The Musical in New York are yet, but they're sure to include lots of talent from Broadway and more.
  • Sesame Street: The Musical isn't just for kids; it's for everyone. Many generations have grown up on Sesame Street through the years, and they'll all find something to love, be it the stars, the nostalgia, the music, or all of these at once.
