Broadway Up Close gives you a "behind-the-scenes" look with guides that are professional working actors and stage managers in addition to being licensed tour guides. Being a part of "show business", the guides can provide insider info and stories from current and past shows that have graced the Broadway arena.
Broadway Up Close started as an idea in 2010 by actor Tim Dolan. While on the national tour of the musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Tim was fascinated by the ghost stories and legends told by local stagehands at different touring houses each night. Upon moving back to New York City when the tour ended, he started to explore the history and legends that have taken place in our current 41 Broadway theaters. Unearthing some truly fantastic stories from over 100 years ago, Tim felt compelled to start tours of the Broadway Theatre District further detailing and sharing those ghost stories, anecdotes, and wonderful tales of building a Broadway show from rehearsals to opening night.
