architecture of grand old theatres, the Broadway Open House Theatre
tours on Saturday afternoons are for you. If you love to hear actors
share what inspires them to perform on stage, reserve your space at one
of the Talent Panels on Wednesday evenings. Show off your own talent or
just have fun by participating in karaoke or dance lessons in the middle
of Times Square! Broadway impacts everyone across the country, but it
all starts here.”

Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League states,
“It’s always a perfect time to see a show, and now with over 20 exciting
new shows opening before the end of the year, it’s an especially vibrant
time! As always, great seats are easy to buy and available at every
price point – it’s never been a better time to see long-running plays
and musicals that you’ve been meaning to catch. With special deals for
shows and restaurants, Broadway is accessible for all New Yorkers, and
the compelling events planned for Back2Broadway Month provide even more
reasons to catch some of the magic!”
