Sesame Street Live!

I do a lot of blogging about running, but not a lot of posts are about being a I am going to change that today.

I love Sesame Street and have as long as I can remember. My parents tell me of how I used to dance on one foot to the opening song. I learned how to count to ten in Spanish amongst many other things watching that show. It is one of the only shows I remember from my childhood (that, and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood), mostly because we only had four television channels in those days. The Christmas Eve special is one that we now own on DVD and watch every year...even before Ian and I had kids. One of my earliest memories was going to the "big city" Portland to see Sesame Street Live, parking in a parking garage (a big impression on a little girl from small-town Maine), and getting a huge button with all the characters on it. Even with the endless list of children's shows available to our kids now, Sesame Street is one that we watch on a regular basis. It has stood the test of time for over forty years and has changed with the times, but the lessons and messages that it promotes are those that I agree with.

About the performance:
When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air - and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage! Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along! Learn why it feels good to sing a song, but why it feels good to stop, too! What will Elmo learn about the power of musical magic? Join the conga line of fun to find out!
