Embrace your inner theatrical geek and join a tour guide/actors who weave groups around New York’s bustling streets, brandishing their love of the stage and of the city along half-mile routes that cover the origins of musical theater.
What to Expect
Each tour guide brings a tablet with photos and videos and will entertain you with backstage stories and personal stage experiences. On this tour, you are taken past many famous locations such as the Nederlander Theater (Rent), St. James Theater (Oklahoma), the Majestic Theater (Phantom), Sardi’s Restaurant, Helen Hayes, Shubert Alley, etc.
Along the way, learn about why you always leave the ghost lamp onstage after a show (theater superstitions), why Rodgers and Hammerstein are considered the grandfathers of musical theater, and how Bob Fosse and Antoinette Perry became Broadway legends. You will also gain insight into the life of a Broadway actor as well as learn about Off-Broadway festivals, rehearsal studios, and the best way to get tickets to a Broadway show.
