Go Diego Go Live!

Over the weekend we took our son to one of the many Go Diego Go Live! shows playing at the Warner Theatre in Washington D.C. Ignoring the high ticket prices, hidden service charges and convenience fees, and merchandise - the show itself was very entertaining. Much more entertaining than other kid's shows we've attended (i.e. Sesame Street and the Wiggles). First the Warner Theatre is a great venue - there are no bad seats. Second, the cast performed without being childish - which made it interesting for the adults.

The storyline followed a typical Diego show - an animal was in trouble, this time his side kick, Baby Jaguar, lost his growl to the troublesome Bobo Brothers. With the help from the audience, Diego and his entourage - including an appearance by Dora - use his gadgets to track down the Bobo Brothers and return Baby Jaguar's growl. Our favorite performances were from the Rescue Pack and the Coconut Trees. During the entire adventure - our son - as well as the younger audience, was fixated on the stage - growling when asked, clapping, and dancing. At the end, the children were dancing in the aisles. If only there weren't any hidden service charges and convenience fees.
