Last Stop on Market Street is a hip-hoppin’, heart-thumpin’, toe-tappin’ musical joy ride about finding beauty in everyday city life based on the multi award-winning picture book of the same name!
Young CJ is reluctantly staying with his Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he’s used to. Guided by his veritable force-of-nature Nana, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and sees that things are not always what they seem.
Recommended for kids 4+ but welcomes children of all ages.
“Like a kid’s version of ‘In the Heights’! Bursts with life and warmth. Worth an hour of anyone’s time!”
Cast & Creative
We currently hold two Relaxed Performances for each Atlantic for Kids productions: one for public school groups and one for the general public. Relaxed Performances are events designed with accommodations for people—including those with autism, sensory or communication disorders, or developmental differences—who would benefit from a more relaxed theater-going environment.
The relaxed performances for Last Stop on Market Street will be on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6.
Originally co-commissioned and produced by Chicago Children’s Theatre and the Children’s Theatre Company
