EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Hit the streets of the Great White Way and discover the excitement of New York’s incredible theater scene, from Broadway events to the adventurous Off-Broadway stage and beyond. Get an inside look at a world ordinary members of the audience never see as you spend five days immersed in New York theater and in personal encounters with those who help create it.


Highlights

• Attend a Broadway musical, a dramatic production, and an Off-Broadway show.
• Go backstage at a Broadway theater and explore Times Square’s theatrical history.
• Enjoy a behind-the-scenes discussion of the page-to-stage process with key staff such as a producer, director, or theater manager.

Program Notes

Performances are decided about six weeks in advance, when we purchase the tickets. We purchase tickets for the number of participants enrolled. We strive for a well balanced program incorporating the newest productions. We seldom attend shows that have been on Broadway more than a year or are traveling.

Activity Notes

Walking up to three miles per day with lots of stairs. Public transportation used exclusively throughout program.
