When the neighborhood mailman delivers scenic postcards on Sesame Street, he sparks imaginary vacations to far-away places for the characters who live there.
And so, in "1-2-3 Imagine," a new live touring show from Sesame Street Live, Ernie takes to the high seas, Elmo dances in an African rainforest and kids learn they can be anyone, do anything and go anywhere with the power of imagination.
The Broadway-style musical visits Mesa this week; it will show June 25-27 at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.
Sesame Street Live's "1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends" goes on stage 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. Additional shows are 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday. $15-$35. (480) 644-6500 or www.mesaartscenter.com.
