Full description
Explore Broadway's backstage on a 1 hour and 45 minute walking tour of New York's famous Theater District!

Discover not only the fascinating history of Broadway, but behind-the-scenes stories that brought the unforgettable productions to life. Accompanied by a professional actor guide, you'll also learn the secrets behind historic theaters from an insider's perspective, how the audition process works, and the tricks of making it in the business.

Learn the story that created Times Square; from its origins as a horse trading district, to its transformation into the stage entertainment capital of the world! Trace the evolution of theaters after the Great Depression into the radio, and television studios of today – including where the Tonight Show first aired.

Walk the edge of the notorious Hell's Kitchen, and hear how a 'Real' West Side Story took place just blocks from the theater where it was playing. The tour also highlights the stories behind places such as Shubert Alley, 42nd Street, The Edison Hotel, 'Smoky Mary's' church, and the George M. Cohan statue – as well as a few surprises along the way!
