Announcing a new series of visits to Broadway by popular demand! Let virtual trip leader James Sokol zoom you to New York City to meet and "tour" with our terrific, dynamic, professional guide—a "walking encyclopedia of Broadway!"—who shares interesting stories and rarely seen photographs to make Broadway's past and present merge before your eyes.
Enjoy four visits:
- July 5: From Matzoh to Mean Girls
From the tables of the vanished Cafe Edison to the halls of the old Mark Hellinger Theatre, visit the northern blocks of the theatre district from 47th Street to 53rd Street. We'll journey back to the 1920s when Broadway theatres began rising out of the ashes.
- July 12: Tonys, Triumphs and Turntables
44th and 45th Streets are known to be the luckiest streets of the Broadway Theatre District; explore the nooks and crannies, successes and legends that have called these glorious theatres home. Begin at the site of the creation of the Tony Awards and end at the final resting spot of one of Broadway's most iconic actors.
- July 19: Inside the Hudson Theater
Journey back to 1903 for a rare look at Broadway's oldest theatre, The Hudson. For over 100 years the theatre's walls have witnessed tragedy, gangsters and legends of pop culture, music and Broadway who created iconic moments amid the glow of Louis Comfort Tiffany's original lighting.
- July 26: Broadway Bar Crawl
This tour provides a unique perspective on "The Great White Way." Since Broadway began, theatre and food have always been intertwined. Clustered among Broadway theatres are theatrical watering holes where deals are made over drinks, actors convene and theatre-goers dine. From gentleman-only theatre restaurants of the 1880s to the lobster palaces of the early 1900s to our beloved Sardi's of today, explore the quirky, fascinating histories of some of Broadway's most famous eateries.
