Tuesday and Wednesday To-Do: Dora the Explorer Live!



7 p.m., Robinson Center Performance Hall. $15-$39.

“Dora is to kids what the Rolling Stones are to parents — she's one of the biggest stars in the world,” says the vice president of the production company that's putting on the show. It's the kind of hyperbole that publicists push daily. Or, well, is it? While certainly incongruous, the analogy is pretty apt. And all the parents of toddlers nod their heads. Because, in a world not much wider than coloring books and Legos, where fiction and reality are fluid ideas, Dora reigns supreme. She's got a lot going for her. She's seven, but already a full-fledged adventurer. She's bilingual, and she's got a big crew that tags along with her in jungles, beaches and such. Like in the Nickelodeon TV show, in the stage production, Dora and co. run into a lot of obstacles and invite the audience to provide some instructive help. The stage show encores on Wednesday, with two shows, one at 10:30 a.m. and another at 7 p.m.
