Hippies, Discos & Dogs, Oh My! Virtual Tour
Broadway shows are not playing but that doesn’t mean we can’t EXPERIENCE Broadway! This NEW program, from Broadway Up Close, brings Broadway right into the comfort of your home!
This virtual tour will explore some of the Broadway theaters at the northern end of the theatre district from 47th Street to 54th Street. Guests will hear how Broadway transformed with the first million dollar show and the introduction of rock musicals. They'll also learn how a dog named Sandy would change one Tony Award winner's life - and Broadway's canine future - while little orphan Annie belted "Tomorrow" in front of thousands. And with some of Broadway's longest-running shows, from Hair! to Wicked, housed within these blocks, our Green Team Guide will bring to light the backstage quirks and secrets that are rarely heard. Utilizing rarely seen photographs from years of research, tourgoers will see Broadway's past and present merge before their eyes.
Using Zoom, guests will participate in a live, interactive experience featuring signature stories and rare photos. During the experience, you'll answer trivia questions, polls, and a be part of a live chat conversation all woven together to seamlessly bring Broadway alive in your living room!
Once you register, you will receive a secure Zoom link to access the event at "curtain time." Only 1 ticket needed per device (a household can watch on one or multiple devices).
