Saw: Dr. Zhivago, THE VISIT w/Chita Rivera, and Disenchanted, all musicals. The Visit ( I had not read the book) was a deep dark musical. Did: Gallagher's, Sardi's, Thai, and other smaller ones. Liked it all because I LOVE theatre.

This was a "Theater and Restaurant" weekend. We crammed a lot into a short time frame. If you are traveling from outside of New York City, Buy tickets ahead of time online. Make your dinner reservations in advance as well. See what you enjoy. We saw a couple of musicals and a dramatic play. All in all a great weekend.

Broadway is a must-see when visiting New York City. You should see a show as there are many amazing ones. I recommend going to the Lincoln Center as the Lincoln Center has beautiful architecture. Remember to book your tickets in advance.

You can walk the full length of Broadway shopping, or just sightseeing but the main attraction are the Broadway shows and there are plenty of them. A Broadway show is a must see, they are fantastic, the atmosphere in the theatres themselves are worth a visit. Plenty of different shows so something for everyone.

A broadway show isn't cheap. You could decide to queue on the day for cheap tickets but the queues are very long. Best pre book if you are keen to get specific shows or seats Our son chose Lion King. It didn't disappoint. Spectacular live performance. The performers gave it their all. Magical memories are made of this.

Limited run, wonderful play, funny in parts depicting Queen Elizabeth II's weekly 15 minute 'audience' with her Prime Ministers. Wonderful acting all around, Helen Mirren amazingly looks like the contemporary Queen as well as her younger self. Don't miss this show. Interesting and spellbinding, audiences unusually attentive!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
