„We have developed this package with the idea of creating a tour that is unlike any other in the City of New York,“ stated Michael Lonergan, Principal of GothamTix in New York City. „We want to ensure that visitors to New York, both domestic and international, can experience not only seeing Broadway on stage but also the rich history available behind-the-scenes, as well as dining at a private club, rich in its own architectural and cultural history. And much of this is not available to the general public.“

 

Visitors can select from one of the top Broadway shows including Phantom of the Opera, Spiderman, Les Miserables, Matilda, Motown: The Musical, Newsies, Once and many more.

 

Next, they choose from two intriguing tours offered by the Museum of the City of New York:

  • The Theatre Collection Tour, with Morgan Stevens-Garmon, Theater Archivist, charts the history of the city through its popular entertainments. With theatrical posters, original manuscripts, and over 5,000 design renderings, the collection documents the process of creating theater from the page to the stage.
  • The Costume Collection Tour, with Phyllis Magidson, Curator of Costumes and Textiles, guides visitors through the 27,000 objects in the City Museum’s costume collection which chronicles the stylistic evolution of the nation’s fashion capital, the work of New York designers, and the emergence of the garment industry, along with key moments and personalities in the city’s history.

The package includes lunch or dinner at The National Arts Club, a private club facing Gramercy Park. Both a New York City and a National Historic Landmark, the Club was founded in 1898 by Charles de Kay, the literary art critic for the New York Times and was the previous residence of New York Governor Samuel Tilden.
