One of only five playhouses actually on Broadway itself, the Broadway Theatre is also one of the largest in the city. Despite its origins as a movie theater and vaudeville house, the theater is ideal for musicals, with a large stage and seating capacity and great acoustics, and it has hosted many hits over the years.

Broadway on the Go
Our tour guide Chris was very friendly, funny and informative. He took us to at least a half a dozen spots to tell us about the theaters and historical shows and people. He had an iPad to also show us original photos of the locations.

A Broadway Must!
This tour was more than I could have asked. Having two kids who love Theatre and all the the things involved it was so informative! Chris was amazing!! Answered all the questions and more!! He even stayed after the tour was over and answered all the questions! I asked my 16 year old what the best part was and he said “The Advice!” I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. I will say the only down side was it being so cold and windy but you can’t control that.

Q:Can I wear jeans to a Broadway show?

Q:What’s the best Broadway show?
