Seeing a show on Broadway is a must do when visiting Manhattan. It is some of the best talent in the world and the overall experience can't be beat. There are several restaurants surrounding the theaters to grab a drink or bite to eat both before or after the shows and the buzz of the area is indescribable.

Was unsure which Broadway show to see, but eventually decided on Chicago, which turned out to be a good choice. The theatre and stage as a little smaller than I expected, but it certainly was indicative of the show. The music was great, especially some of the classics. The acting, singing and dancing was excellent. I really enjoyed the show,... More

Not difficult to be impressed with Broadway and Time Square if that is your thing especially in the evenings when area refuses to go to sleep. The choices of theatre, musicals and shows is impressive. For the unusual, and worth eating there for simple food, try Ellen's Stardust Diner where the waiters/waitresses sing while serving guests. Quite a history to... More

Being the last person on earth who wanted to see a Broadway play, I went to see Newsies while in New York. Not only did I enjoy it but will return to see more plays.

Fabulous show with amazing Cirque de Soleil-esque acts. Beautiful theatre. It was very expensive though. Visited TKTS booth but the queue was outrageous and it didn't seem fair to subject the kids to that sort of wait.

I have been to Broadway a few times, perhaps each time I was in in New York, and always loved the buzz of the place. This visit, the difference was having the time to catch a show! We saw the Carole King musical which was excellent, but guess most shows on Broadway are of good standard and there will be... More

There is nothing in the world like Broadway. You can see shows in big cities and around the world but no one does it like Broadway. This is a must see if you come to NYC.

Energy, creativity, talent, ambition, drama...what's there not to love! Never fails to amaze, and when you think of the determination and effort the performers have put in to get to Broadway, it inspires you to chase your own dreams!

Broadway is a must see for any New York trip, but it is just a street going through Manhattan. If you are a Theater buff make sure you tour the Theaters. If not you should probably see one or two. If your visiting Times Square, your on Broadway, and the Lion King is currently showing at the New Amsterdam Theater... More
