Full description
Broadway is synonymous with entertainment, so we've made our walking tour of the Great White Way exactly that: fun-filled and engaging along with making it fascinating and informative. Learn how a group of visionary New Yorkers transformed a collection of horse stables into the world famous Times Square.

Each of the renowned theaters we'll see—among them the Winter Garden, New Amsterdam, Paramount, and Shubert—has its own wonderful stories to tell and secrets to reveal. It all comes to life as we recount the legendary shows, stars and stages that have made this district the center of the theatrical universe with Times Square at its very core. See where Eugene O'Neill was born and where Burt Williams broke the color barrier. Discover the roles Broadway icons like George M. Cohan, Father Duffy, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Andrew Lloyd Weber played in its history and development. All this is set against the stunning resurgence the theater district enjoys today. Prepare yourself for two hours of nonstop entertainment and surprises. It's as uplifting as attending a hit Broadway show itself!
