Go on a 1-hour and 45-minute walking tour of two New York City landmarks: Broadway and Times Square, led by a professional insider (an experienced actor or director!) with first-hand experience, on the Inside Broadway Walking Tour.
This fully immersive walking tour will lift the curtain and introduce you to the world of Broadway theater, auditions, opening nights, disappointments, and huge successes—including the personal experiences of your guide, so you’ll get to experience Broadway Theater from the perspective of a real artist. Walk in the footsteps of some of the greats and learn about their climbs to success, including Ethel Barrymore, Judy Garland, Humphrey Bogart, Julie Andrews, and many more.
Learn about how a primarily horse-trading district transformed into what is now known as the “Entertainment Capital of the World” and feel the excitement of catching a ‘big break’ as your guide fills you in on what it takes to make it in the theater business.
Visit legendary Broadway locations, including Sardi’s, Shubert Alley, the Edison Hotel, and more while hearing stories of the great artists and big dreamers who give the ‘Great White Way’ its heart and soul; the perfect mix of NYC history and Broadway entertainment.
Your guide will even tell you about the sordid secret history that’s happened backstage and tales of the ghosts that still haunt the theater world, including an actual “West Side Story” tale that took place right in Hell’s Kitchen.
In Times Square, you’ll learn how technology transformed vaudeville palaces of the Great Depression into the radio and television studios of today.
