Shubert Brothers & Beyond 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 in the middle of the theatre district from 44th Street to 46th Street. As Times Square transformed from an area full of manure and horse stables to one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world, a battle for Broadway was brewing between a group of theatrical titans and three scrappy brothers with the last name of Shubert. Set against the backdrop of Broadway's most famous theaters, tour-goers will hear about the Shubert Brothers who monopolized Broadway against all odds with the help of an awkwardly named architect. Add in the true origins of the Tony Awards and we promise you'll walk away with a new appreciation for just how far Broadway has come over the past 100 years. Utilizing rarely seen photographs from years of research, virtual tour-goers 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).
