The lights are officially up on Broadway!

To celebrate the theater's big return on Tuesday night, Today co-host Jenna Bush Hager took her daughters Margaret "Mila" Laura, 8, and Poppy Louise, 6, to the opening night of The Lion King on Broadway.

Hager, 39, documented the exciting night out in New York City on her Instagram, sharing adorable photos of her with her daughters as they approached the theater.

The trio dressed up for the occasion, Poppy wearing a blue and white dress while her older sister sported an elegant navy dress printed with birds. Hager, who shares her daughters plus 2-year-old son Henry "Hal" Harold with husband Henry Hager, looked chic in an all-black ensemble with a gold statement necklace.

"A night out with my girls to celebrate the opening of @thelionking and the opening of BROADWAY! As poppy said when her dad was putting her to sleep: 'the lion king was very emotional dada,' " writes Hager, who also attended the show with Today co-host Carson Daly.
