Disney on Broadway: This exclusive tour takes you on an exploration of the history, stars and stories of Broadway, with special access at the New Amsterdam Theatre; home to the Disney Theatrical Group and legendary shows like Aladdin and The Lion King. We’ll visit the top sights of Broadway (like Times Square & Shubert Alley) on a guided walking tour, and then gain special access to the New Amsterdam Theatre.
Led by the in-house historian, you’ll see the huge stage and empty theatre and enjoy a hands-on experience of the official Costumes and Props Studio! During the walking section of your tour, you’ll be led by our Broadway Insiders; a team of guides with first-hand theatre experience of life on Broadway. You’ll have audio headsets throughout so you can hear your guide clearly - and some special audio clips from shows!
Due to ongoing construction and preparations of the New Amsterdam Theatre for the premiere of Frozen on Broadway, from November 20 2016 through January 2017, the costume room access will be replaced by an actual backstage experience. The backstage area of Broadway theatres has been off limits to public tours for decades, and hasn't been accessed by the public in the New Amsterdam in nearly a century. We ask that you strictly respect your tour guide's instructions while backstage to continue to allow us to offer this highly exclusive experience. Between January 2017 and July of 2018, the costume and prop access will be restored via a mobile cart brought into the orchestra section of the theatre.
Meeting/pick-up point: At the George M. Cohan statue at West 46th Street, between Broadway and 7th Avenue towards the end of the block (NOT the statue in front of the red stairs).
