What to Expect
“All the world’s a stage!” Embrace your inner theatrical geek and join a professional licensed 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 theatre and Broadway history. Kids 10 and under can go for free. You are not allowed inside backstage of any Equity Broadway Theatre due to safety regulations so all visits to the theatres will be done outside. Each tour guide brings a tablet with photos and videos and will entertain you with backstage stories and personal stage experiences.
You will be taken on a fun-filled, historical, memorable walking tour through the Lower East Side. This tour visits Off-Off-Broadway theatres like The New York Theatre Workshop, LaMama, Joes Pub, and The Public Theatre, Astor Place Theatre, Orpheum Theatre, etc and more!
