Times Square Broadway Tour
Do you find yourself humming creepy tunes like the theme from The Addams Family *snap snap* or find yourself randomly doing "The Time Warp" again? Then this is the tour for you!
Join us as we explore the spookier side of Broadway. Visit legendary haunted theatres and locales where those denizens of the dark and famous Vaudeville/Broadway stars still take to the stage long after the curtains have closed and after the ghost lights have been turned on. Sing along to famous dark musicals like Jekyll and Hyde, Sweeney Todd, Evil Dead, Carrie (which was so scary it only had 5 performances!), Ghost, Little Shop of Horrors, Phantom Of The Opera, and more.
Starting on the corner of West 41st and 7th Avenue we will learn about the ghosts who haunt several of our Broadway theatre's. The New Amsterdam, The Lyric, The Shubert theatre, The Belasco, and several other stories about spooky themed musicals and their interesting history. At the very end we will take a high resolution photo as a souvenir.
