The Basics

If you want to see a Broadway production with rave reviews (or any show, really), it's best to book tickets in advance. Broadway is No. 1 for a reason, with visitors and New Yorkers alike vying for prime tickets. Pricing can vary greatly per show and per showtime, making a theater excursion accessible for almost every budget. Shows range from the musical theater to the family friendly to the risque, so there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Aside from buying the coveted theater tickets, there are other options to take in the sights and history on Broadway. Visitors might opt for a behind-the-scenes walking tour to learn about NYC landmarks and legends before stepping into a theater and getting a deeper understanding of the venue's history, backstage stories, and the insider's details that put it on the map. Some tours are even led by a tour guide who is a former (or current) Broadway performer.

Broadway Behind-the-Scenes Small-Group Tour
We loved the information about Broadway history, Micaela was a treasure of history and trivia, and so enthusiastic. By far the highlight was doing a reading with my wife at the Actors Studio we visited. Although we didn't get the part, it was still great fun. Cool neighborhood to explore and dine at afterward.

Our guide, Makayla, was very well- informed and shared a healthy amount of information. Appreciated hearing about various facets of Broadway productions, not just the show itself.

The Lion King On Broadway Ticket
This was a Breathtaking experience! Loved every moment and the seats were exceptional and on my birthday. My 18 yo old football playing son attended with me and cheered and clapped the whole way thru. He's hooked now and wants to return for MJ on Broadway. True pleasure!

Theo had great energy and enthusiasm. He needs to know a bit more theatre history about the Astor Place riots and why each theater is named for who it is named for.

Knowledgeable but too much outside time

Disney on Broadway Behind-the-Scenes Walking Tour
Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. However, when reading the details of the tour, you failed to mention that most of the time would be spent outdoors when we thought it would take place in the theatres. It was extremely cold which made it very unpleasant and difficult to enjoy.

When to Get There

Because the star attractions of Broadway are the (indoor) theater shows, you can visit year round. A great way to take in the sights is on a walking tour that combines theater history and a show.

Top-Grossing Broadway Shows of All Time

Along with the latest new hits, some famously long-running shows are still playing on Broadway, including the Tony Award-winning musical Chicago at the Ambassador Theater, Wicked at the George Gershwin, The Lion King at the Minskoff, and The Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theater. As it happens, these Broadway musicals are also some of the top-grossing shows of all times. The Book of Mormon is another favorite.
