Teens

Do you have pre-teens or teens that have a passion for musical theater? What about adult kids you love to get away with for the weekend? Or maybe you just want a weekend away with your spouse.

Whatever the case might be, Broadway-loving families would do well to check out the new Hudson Theatre offer available at Millennium Broadway New York Times Square and the Millennium Premier New York Times Square. Inspired by the new musical comedy Head Over Heels, the offer provides exclusive access to the Hudson Theatre and tickets to the show.

Both hotels are connected to the recently restored Hudson Theatre via a lobby hallway, making it much easier for you to steal away to the performance without dealing with crowds.

The Hudson Theatre experience includes overnight accommodations at either hotel, tickets to the new show Head Over Heels, access to the theater’s Ambassador Lounge before the show and during intermission, a complimentary welcome drink at the theater, dinner at Bugis Street Brasserie and Bar and complimentary WiFi.

“Hudson Theatre is directly situated between our two Broadway properties. This iconic 115-year-old theatre was lovingly restored by Millennium Hotels and Resorts and Ambassador Theatre Group after being closed for almost 50 years. It was a passion project of our chairman, Kwek Leng Beng, who has a personal and deep interest in art, history and culture. ‘Head Over Heels’ will be the fourth show to run at the theatre following the renovation,” said Franck Kermarrec, senior vice president, brands, loyalty, partnerships and communication, Millennium Hotels and Resorts.

The Hudson Theatre experience is available through Feb. 17, 2019,  and starts at $449 for two people and increases in cost for each individual person you add.

If you’re staying at either property with younger children who might not be suited for the Broadway experience, they can enjoy the brand’s Ask Alfred Children’s Programme,

The kids’ concierge program offers various children’s activities and a kids’ amenity kit, which includes a backpack filled with fun items such as an Ask Alfred teddy bear, organic sweet treats, activity sets and stickers. The add-on amenity starts at $15 and a portion of the proceeds from the program goes to The Dream Factory, a charity that fulfills dreams for chronically ill children. Elementary-aged children also enjoy a complimentary breakfast, with kid-friendly menu items like French toast and scrambled eggs.

The Wende Museum: Propaganda with Purpose

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of an era in Eastern Europe reinforced in part by propaganda. Your teens, however, are learning propaganda is one of the common threads running through world history and is still making headlines in its many different forms. They are also probably getting to know the oft repeated maxim that if, “You don’t learn from history, you are doomed to repeat it.”

Celebrating Veterans Day

Like most holidays calling into memory those who have given a great sacrifice, Veterans Day can be a hard day to explain to young kids. Through the parades, fireworks and days off school, the meaning of the day can become lost unless parents force the point home.
