Britney Spears

Britney Spears is in the Big Apple for work, but she made time to take her sons to a Broadway show Sunday afternoon.

Brit, Sean Preston and Jayden James arrived for a matinee performance of The Little Mermaid, starring Drew Seeley, just before the curtain went up.

"The audience was so excited about her being here," a source tells E! News. "They snapped photos as she walked down the aisle, but no one bothered her once she was seated."

So how'd her sons like the show?

A source says the boys were very well-behaved and drank water and Coke during intermission.

"Her kids loved the undersea adventure so much, they even asked Britney if they can see it again," says a source.

The singer politely declined show merchandise offered to her, along with a chance to meet the cast afterward, and made a quick exit as soon as the show ended.

Spears joins Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes and David and Victoria Beckham on the list of celebrity parents who have taken their little ones to see the show since it premiered on Broadway.

On Monday night, Spears will be back onstage performing her Circus tour at Madison Square Garden.
