Use of New York City subway (depending on show location). Walking about 1 mile; city sidewalks.
At the hotel, choose what you like from the breakfast buffet.
We’ll walk from the hotel to a Broadway theater where a local expert will tell us all about it. Most of the Broadway theaters have a history that goes back over 100 years. Ranging from glamorous 1920s showgirls to 1970s dereliction, these theaters have seen it all, but they're still here! We’ll then head out with our expert for a walking field trip around the theater district before returning to the hotel.
At the hotel, we'll have boxed lunches with a choice of sandwich or salad, chips, sweet treat, fruit, water.
This afternoon we'll meet a professional from the off-Broadway theater world. The off-Broadway theater movement started in the 1920s as a response to the commercialism of Broadway, often located in small spaces far from Times Square. Today, off-Broadway is still home to interesting, edgy, smaller works and/or works by upcoming playwrights. New York boasts several off-Broadway not-for-profit theater companies dedicated to this mission.
At a restaurant near the theater; coffee, tea, water included, other beverages available for purchase.
Performance. We’ll attend an off-Broadway theater performance. (Depending on the location, we will either walk or take the subway.) Our program was planned far in advance when performance details were not confirmed. When available, the information will be posted on the Road Scholar website under this program number and will also be included in preparatory materials sent following enrollment.
