Got half price tickets 40 minutes before start of show - 50% off. Excellent seats for the best show we've ever seen - Motown.

If I had to summarise what Broadway is like, I would surely choose to define it as a land of bewilderment. Try walking along this street both directions and let curiosity and enchantment lead you along the way. Make plans to spend some time in the afternoon at Times Square. It will be crowded but you will not repent.

For me Broadway was a must! I went to a show every night (4 in total)! Loved the theater district - there is such energy in the air. I think for an out of towner this is a must experience!

The sets were beautiful and the costume changes practically wizardry! But that's where the good stuff ends. The show is dull, sickeningly sweet, and more pantomime than comedy. Though everyone on the stage played their characters very well, the characters were vacuous and not at all engaging. Added to that the boring, repetitive and not even remotely memorable songs this...

We have four boys and this play hit home in so many ways. It lets you as a parent see and realize the way our kids view things and some of the challenges they face. The young cast of only three did an excellent job and really nailed their roles. They received a standing ovation for their performance and I... More

The hustle and bustle of the area. Quite intimidating at first and then the rush of adrenalin as one looks around - so much to see.

If you see nothing else you must go to Book of Mormon. The funniest show EVER!!! The tickets cost a bit but worth every cent.

We walked down most of Broadway at different times over our stay as it appears to go on forever. Depending on what part of the city you are in at the time, the street takes on a different look with the Battery park side being less glamorous. The theatres just off Broadway showing Les Miz the lion king were smaller... More

There is nothing more vibrant than the entire area and more exciting than looking at the line at the TXK kiosk for discounted tickets. Try an early dinner at Sardi's before your show or just ramble the area for ambiance pre showtime.
