“All the world’s a stage!” Embrace your inner theatrical geek and join our 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. Each tour guide brings a tablet with photos and videos and will entertain you with backstage stories and personal stage experiences.
On this tour, we will take you past many famous locations such as the Nederlander Theatre (Rent), St. James Theatre (Oklahoma), the Majestic Theatre (Phantom), Sardi’s Restaurant, Helen Hayes, Shubert Alley, etc. Along the way, learn about why we always leave the ghost lamp onstage after a show (theatre superstitions), why Rodgers and Hammerstein are considered the grandfathers of musical theatre, 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.
This tour is the perfect gift for the young up-and-coming Broadway performer in your life or for enthusiasts who love to sing and dance. Expect spontaneous jazz hands and outbursts of Broadway showtunes!
