Nick Jonas, currently starring in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, is joined by Charlotte St. Martin (executive director of the Broadway League), Jordan Roth (president of Jujamcyn Theaters and founder of Givenik.com) and Bret Pidgeon (general manager of Madame Tussauds NY) Feb. 7 for a pre-theatre party to kick off Kids' Night on Broadway.

The event, for Kids' Night on Broadway ticketholders, will launch at 2:30 PM at Madame Tussauds New York (234 W. 42nd Street). Following the kick-off, the fanfest will proceed from 3 PM-6 PM.

Kids' Night, which is presented by the Broadway League, allows kids ages 6 to 18 to see Broadway shows for free when accompanied by a full-paying adult. The ticket includes pre-theatre parties, restaurant discounts, parking discounts, educational programs and more.

Kids’ Night on Broadway tickets are available for participating shows through Feb. 9.

In a previous statement Jonas said, "As someone who got their start as a kid on Broadway, it’s truly an honor to be involved in such a fantastic event. Broadway played an enormous role in inspiring me to be the performer I am today, and as this year’s [Kids' Night] ambassador I hope I’ll be able to encourage kids across the country to get involved in the theatre — whether on stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience.”



Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, added, "We know that experiencing live theatre at a young age creates a lifelong habit of theatre-going. Broadway not only educates kids about the world at large, but teaches tolerance, social justice, cultural identity, and more. Kids' Night on Broadway is a fun way to introduce them to the magic found on stage.”

Participating shows follow: Anything Goes, Chicago, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, Godspell, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Jersey Boys, The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Mary Poppins, Memphis, The Phantom of the Opera, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Rock of Ages, Seminar, Sister Act, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Wicked, Wit, Avenue Q, The Gazillion Bubble Show, Freckleface Strawberry, Million Dollar Quartet, RENT, Stomp and Traces.

Kids’ Night on Broadway tickets are also on sale at the Broadway Concierge & Ticket Center, which is located inside the Times Square Visitor Center at 1560 Broadway (on the 7th Avenue side of Duffy Square).
