Being a West End theatre buff I was keen to see shows on Broadway and sample the general atmosphere. Well, they don't do theatre like London does, it just seemed to lack the grandeur of a night in London's Theatre Land. Personal opinion obviously but after a trip here and to New York City generally, it makes you realise just... More

Fabulous! However, if you want to see a particular show book before you arrive! Just because some shows have been running 'forever' doesn't mean they're not sold out - particularly on week- ends! I loved being in the area but missed seeing either of the two musicals I was prepared to pay handsomely for! Sigh :(

Saw Mama Mia - get your tickets ahead of time. Fabulous! The line we were in was crazy long but once the doors opened it was a matter of minutes before we were seated.

An amazing time I had to watch the Book of Mormon on Broadway. We sat in the middle towards the back (second to the last row) and it still felt like it was up close. The drinks (put in sippy cups) and food are extremely pricey. Overall, it was a great experience.

Broadway is such an exciting street. Had a great martini (best ever) at an enoteca on Broadway near the Lincoln Centre (have to search for the name of it though). The play, All The Way starring Bryan Cranston about LBJ was absolutely brilliant and the Neil Simon Theatre was really comfortable too.

Very crowded at night but amazing to see night and day. Don't miss to see a musical when you are there!

This has to be experienced as it is so atmospheric but only in short bursts. Beware of the prices here though but the temptation to buy is strong. Great atmosphere for Broadway shows.
