Not sure what your Broadway-loving group can do in New York City besides seeing a fantastic show? Don’t let the fun stop after watching a performance of Wicked or Hamilton. You can find just as much fun outside the theater with group activities in NYC to complement your Broadway experience.
At the heart of the American theatrical industry, Broadway offers plenty of ways to truly embrace its culture. Here are some unique Broadway-centered things for you and your friends to do in the Big Apple. We at Beyond Times Square promise you’ll be toe-tapping long after you leave!
Fun Things to Do in NYC for Broadway Lovers
Meet a professional and see their show
Our exclusive “Meet a Pro, See Their Show” package includes a special visit with a Broadway cast member at a restaurant before their show. There you’ll learn the ins and outs of auditions, performances, and the life of a Broadway performer. You’ll then get to see your new friend on stage with the added bonus of visiting him or her backstage after the show.
Become your own Broadway star
Get immersed in the performance process in “Sing Broadway, Dance Broadway.” This one-of-a-kind experience places you in the hands of Broadway performers, musical directors, and choreographers to create an exceptional performance you can show to friends and family. Choose your favorite Broadway number and practice in a real Broadway rehearsal studio with professionals. Think singing, dancing, costumes, and lights!
Ever wonder what goes on backstage at a Broadway show? See for yourself when you’re escorted backstage after a stunning performance. You’ll get to see costumes, props, cast members, sets, and more. Photo opportunities won’t be in short supply, as you see what it takes to put on a great performance.
Dinner and Music at Feinstein’s/54 Below
Located at 254 West 54th Street, Feinstein’s/54 Below welcomes you to Broadway. Dine in elegance and watch performances from Broadway’s top stars. Sit down to a word-class dinner and get in the spirit before your show. You’ll be glad you did!
Broadway on the Water Cruise
One of the most unique things to do in NYC involves cruising along the Hudson River and taking in the skyline. Not only does Broadway on the Water Cruise offer sightseeing, but it also offers live performances of popular show tunes as you enjoy drinks and food. See Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty herself while listening to Broadway songs you know and love.
Sing along at Marie’s Crisis
Go to Greenwich Village and step inside Marie’s Crisis, a seemingly unassuming bar that promises a good time when the pianist gets there at 8 pm. The pianist will serve up Broadway and Disney classics to get everyone involved in a fun sing-along. Serving simple drinks, the bar is also known for its beautiful mural of French and American Revolution scenes. No trip to Broadway is complete without visiting Marie’s Crisis and singing your heart out with friends.
We hope that you get out there and experience everything Broadway has to offer. Not just performances, but you can also meet cast members, learn the trade yourself, gain private access backstage, enjoy a pre-theater dinner, take a cruise, and sing with other Broadway lovers in a timeless setting.
