Tour Details

Information

The stories of Times Square, the infamous tales and the backstage secrets, are shared by our talented Walkin’ Broadway Guides (when they are not working in a theater themselves!) The unique aspect of Walkin’ Broadway – an Official Times Square Walking Tour is the voices of the very stars and personalities that have created your favorite shows. Over 40 famous personalities – including producers, actors, directors, designers, theater owners, and industry specialists – are woven into the tour. In addition to the magical voices that whisper secrets into your ears, you’ll also hear music of Broadway shows. It will send chills down your spine and make you dance down the street!

 

Broadway’s Past is inspiring, but the Present is thrilling! So our WB Guide will also provide today’s intrigue and backstage news about the plays and musicals currently on the boards!

 

New York radio personality and producer Elliott Forrest and Don Frantz, (Associate Producer of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Lion King”) are the creators of this unique experience combining your Live WB Guide, a World-Class Audio track featuring the stars of Broadway, excerpts from the Original Cast Recordings and the visual splendor of Times Square, the “Crossroads of the World.”

 

The Broadway Theater District is America’s unofficial National Park of Entertainment and Culture. In these 40 theaters, 26 of them over 90 years old, lives our nation’s collective consciousness in music, dance, drama and the creative spirit. Walkin’ Broadway now brings this urban park to life, block by block, theater by theater, building by building, story by first-hand story.
