How to get to Sesame Street? Head to the DC Armory. Today through Sunday the Sesame Street Live gang performs 1-2-3 ... Imagine! for children of all ages. The show features the usual cast of characters - Elmo, Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Rosita and the others - and offers plenty of song and dance, along with lessons about appreciating other cultures and languages and using your power of imagination.
In the show, Samantha the mail carrier explains to the Sesame Street residents how they can use their imagination to visit distant lands and connect with faraway loved ones. Soon, Rosita is in Mexico with her grandmother, Elmo is playing drums in an African rainforest and Ernie is captain of the high seas. Everyone gets to experience an imaginary adventure.
