If I ever make it back to NYC, I will only go to shows and eat! I don't even like plays or musicals, but loved "Aladdin" and "Rock of Ages"!

No trip to the city is complete without experiencing all the the Broadway area (Times Square) and theaters have to offer. A traveler to this great city simply must plan to see one great Broadway show, and take a nighttime walk through the crowded streets illuminated by the lights and dreams of Broadway.

We were lucky enough to see a show, which was great, but it was just amazing to be on Broadway and nearby Times Square at different times of the day. There is always a new experience awaiting.

I saw 4 shows in 3 days last week. My favorite was Matilda because it was so creative and fun. I have both West End and Broadway CDs, but didn't really appreciate it until I saw it in person. You must add this show to your 'Must See List'.

Traveling to NYC make sure you see a Broadway show, play or musical. Wonderful place in our history as a country. Support the arts. I made my husband suffer through Wicked. He wasn't into it but it's truly a once in a lifetime event.

There is only one Broadway in the world, and this is it. One long street with so many lights and sites...and people. Most theaters are off the street...but restaurants, shops, and attractions at all price and quality levels abound the area.

When we were in New York we went and saw two shows on Broadway. Chicago and Mammia Mia. Both shows were fantastic. Broadway has so much to offer. Everywhere you look there is a different show so something for everyone ones taste. Even my boyfriend who is not that keen of the theatre thought it was a fantastic experience.

We watched MATILDA, it was superb. We wanted Cinderella and sadly wasn't screened the only day we had free. There were 3 others we wanted to catch, and didn't. The prices you pay compared to what is charged in Australia is hard to believe. You can sit upstairs and get a better seat and view and have to pay 2wice... More

My partner and I attend theatrical events in our city, but nothing is more impressive than the talent on the Broadway stage.

The Broadway is the face of New York, Manhattan! It is always worth a walk. Though it is really busy, no matter at which time you go there, there is just so much to see. At night its a completely diffrent world.
