There's Theater For All Ages in the Coming Weeks
It's a fine fortnight to be a kid at the theater. The Bushnell (166 Capitol Ave., Hartford; 860-987-5900, bushnell.org) has the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater — its canine stars all former strays rescued from shelters, if that does anything to pacify PETA — for two shows Saturday, April 27 at 2:30 & 6:30 p.m. For $19.50-$39.50. On May 3 (at 10:30 a.m. & 6 p.m.) and May 4 (at 10:30 a.m., 2 & 5:30 p.m.) the Bushnell brings in a whole other species of family entertainment: Elmo's Super Heroes, the latest Sesame Street Live tour. That same weekend, the Oakdale (95 South Turnpike Road, Wallingford; 203-265-1501, oakdale.com) welcomes another caped-kid caper, the word-happy Super Why! Live — You've Got the Power! for a single show 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 5.
