What you'll do

We will walk through the theater district and I will show you the best and most important sights that have shaped the history of musical theater, starting in Times Square in front of the Palace Theater where vaudeville and consequently musicals were born in the 1900s. A big part of the tour will focus on 42nd Street and it's Disney-fication from the 1990's into what is called now, the "New 42nd Street". Check out my instagram for your reference (and follow me!) - IG :andres____ Please come prepared with questions, I would love to answer any of them for you! If you need any changes for a specific time or additional guests, please don't hesitate to ask, I am very flexible

Andres

I love Broadway! I have seen over 200 Broadway shows in the past 13 years in all the 41 existing Broadway theaters and have become an expert on all things Broadway (behind the scenes and on stage). I am currently an associate board member of the New York Musical Theater Festival and was a licensed NYC Tour Guide. I work full time in finance now, with the end goal of becoming a producer/investor in a few years. My passion for Broadway is immense and I would like to share it with other passionate people. Broadway is the heart of NYC and this tour will give you everything you need to know about the amazing art form and business! This tour can be tailored for complete Broadway newbies and for experts who know everything already.

Where you'll be

Times Square's George M. Cohan statue is an iconic piece of theater history and it's often dismissed in the hustle and bustle of Times Square, I will take you there directly and give you the history and where it all began. We will walk along 42nd street and I will show you the theaters, what has been renovated, what has been torn down, & what is hidden.
