We loved the "Broadway Up Close Tour" we took recently. It was so amazing to hear the stories about the happenings (even the ghosts) in the theaters. Our guide, Tim Dolan, knew so much and kept the tour interesting right up to the end. This is a tour that seasoned New Yorkers would enjoy as well as tourists from out of town. Don't miss it!

This trip was entirely for seeing Broadway musicals and since we hadn't been to NYC in several years, I figured we could get tickets for the 5 nightly shows and one matinee during our visit at TKTS on Duffy Sq. While I was surprised that Wicked wasn't available at TKTS (since past experience has shown that most shows are available discounted in non-peak times if they've been playing a few years), we did find 6 other shows on our short list - even the limited engagement Newsies. Also saw Nice Work if You Can Get It on the last night of previews, then checked the reviews at midnight the following night. This was our favorite show of the trip despite pretty universally negative opening reviews. It was compared unfavorably to Anything Goes, which we also saw; while we certainly liked Anything Goes, we liked Nice Work better. Broadway the avenue, around Times Square in particular, is just a densely packed and unpleasant area you have to put up with to see theater. But since we enjoy a good "musical fix" with singing and dancing boys and girls, along with nice costumes and sets, we're willing to brave the crowds to get tickets and see shows.

My Sisters and I went to Broadway at night (the only time to see it properly). It was amazing. Loved the Hard Rock Cafe there - a great guy called Hugo looked after us really well.

We absolutely loved walking through Times Square and Broadway. We went to see Mary Poppins, and loved it. Would recommend : )
