~Walter Winchell

Broadway is at the center of the American theatrical industry. There are various ways to truly experience the feeling and learn its culture. Some of the exclusive Broadway-centered activities for you and your friends to do in New York City are:

Wine and Dine Before the Show

As you get ready for your show, you can relax, and wine and dine with Broadway stars. This way you’ll get into the spirit of Broadway even before starting your main Broadway experience.

Be your own Broadway star

You and your friends can become your own Broadway stars by immersing yourselves in the performance process in “Sing Broadway, Dance Broadway.” This unique experience puts you in the hands of Broadway artists, choreographers, and musical directors to produce an outstanding performance you can have bragging rights about to friends and family.

The pianist will entertain you and your group of friends by playing Broadway and Disney classics to get everyone involved in a fun sing-along.
