If you are going to New York and love the theatre , you must go and see this show, it was fantastic and worth every penny. I do not want to spoil the surprise to much, but audience participation is strongly encouraged, especially in the second half of the show. All the characters in the show were superb. The show...

The Broadway is the heart of the performing arts. The selection of the shows is a great challenge because there are so many choices that you might find it difficult to choose. If you are a visitor go with your personal preference.

When people refer to Broadway they usually mean the theater district although it stretches on for miles. Most of the Broadway theaters are off the Broadway Street but within a close walking district of each other. You may find four on two sides of a street. The reason for this is that many theaters are small. In order to be... More

Since we were on a tight schedule we had no time to see any shows, but the out side roads were very interesting & full of noise as people were making there way to see the shows, watching the people was also a novel experience. A must see when in New-York.

The Times square and Broadway shows were wonderful and better than expected. Broadway shows around the country are good but in New York on Broadway they are better.

An Off Off Broadway Production of "iIt's a Religious Thing" was fantastic at the Y Theater in NYC. Great Experience. Great Show. A cozy, personal NYC select theater. The best intimate NYC Theater.

The Broadway is someting special. You have to see it on your own to understand it. All these Musicals, people walking around so you almost can't get to the place you would like to and at the same time the traffice with all the yellow cabs. Especially fun is it to try and drive a huge car trough the trafic... More

As expected a crazy place mixing people, cars and buses in a chaotic experience. Huge light walls with advertising for shows and commercial brands. Just one point of attention: the city is currently rebuilding the place, which means that there is much less room for people as normal. As we missed a cafe with terrasse to sit down and enjoy...

We loved walking up and down Broadway in the Time Square area - so much to see and do! However - the restaurants are very over priced!

Whilst I enjoyed it, I was a little "underwhelmed" and felt it did not reach the heights of its " hype." " Bullets Over Broadway" production outshone M. Mia hugely in my opinion. It seems to me that many shows are "artificially" promoted to persuade the fickle public that they are something better than they rally are. "Smoke and mirrors!"
