The Basics

Pass by the historic Gershwin Theatre on a neighborhood walking tour or private sightseeing tour, both of which are a great way to hear old Broadway legends and see the sights. To explore inside the theater, book tickets to a show. Most shows at the Gershwin are quite popular, and buying tickets in advance is recommended. Pick a show that works best for you—either a matinee or evening performance.

It was amazing and Lucas was so knowledgeable about all the Broadway theatres
Everything was memorable. We will recommend this tour to everyone especially to all of our theatre friends that come to New York. I found out all about theatres that I never knew and even my theatre loving kid learned some things too

Private Theatre District Tour
Our tour guide, Patrick, was a wealth of knowledge, anecdotes, historical background, all interspersed with his obvious love of theater. We learned so much in such a short period of time...and enjoyed every minute.

Things to Know Before You Go

When to Get There

Though you can pass by the Gershwin anytime, the best way to experience the theater is at a show. To attend a performance, make sure to arrive at least 20 minutes before the show starts. Since most shows are opening—and getting reviewed—between September and December, plan to book tickets outside of these peak months. July is a great month to see a Broadway show, since the Tony Awards are over by mid-June.
