Description

For Broadway lovers and Disney fans, there's no better experience than this new, exclusive access tour. Created in collaboration with Disney Theatrical Group, this tour takes you behind the magic at the New Amsterdam Theatre; entering when the theatre is closed for a special guided tour.

Spend a full hour with the in-house historian, learning about the history of this incredible building. You'll have the place to yourself so you can visit the first floor and balcony levels, admiring the vast stage as your guide describes what goes into the creation and performance of a Broadway production like "Beauty & The Beast", "Mary Poppins", "Aladdin" and "The Lion King". You'll hear stories of the goings-on behind the scenes and learn about the superstitions held by Broadway performers - including a few ghost stories.

The highlight of your experience is in the second part of your New Amsterdam tour. You'll visit the Prop Studio, where you'll find treasures untold, getting up close and personal with original props, costumes and set piece for many of your favorite Disney on Broadway musicals.

While we do spend a lot of time on the Disney element of our tour (you'll hear audio recordings from shows and learn lots of fun Disney trivia), we don't just stop there: This is a proper Broadway tour.

To ensure that you get a full picture of Broadway and that you have as much context as possible when you visit the New Amsterdam, you'll take a guided tour of Broadway before your visit, stopping at landmark theatres where legendary shows drew huge crowds and global attention. For this section of your tour, you'll travel with one of our Broadway Insiders, a team drawn from a bank of actors, crew members and even theatre managers - all of whom have first-hand experience of life behind the curtain.

Discover the unlikely origins of Times Square and hear the rags-to-riches tale of NYC's theatre district (and how Disney was instrumental in changing the fate of a notorious red light district). Learn of the legendary Ziegfeld Follies which kick started Broadway production as we know it, not to mention the careers of so many legendary performers. You'll also visit Sardi's to see the famous character portraits, learning about the on and off-screen shenanigans of Broadway's biggest names.

With your Broadway Insider guide, you'll see the most popular cast hangouts and identify the most important theatres - in both a historic sense and from a theatrical and musical standpoint. You'll hear stories you'll hardly be able to believe (like how a goat once fell from the roof of one of these very theatres) and get a grasp of just how colossal a Broadway production is; how much blood and sweat goes into every performance and how many people there are behind the scenes and in the wings every time the curtain rises.

Like a theatre director on opening night, you can rest assured that we've taken painstaking care over the little details on this tour. We've chosen only the best guides to join our Broadway Insiders team and have drawn up the perfect route to showcase the very best of showbiz, combining the magic of Disney and the glamour of Broadway into one epic behind-the-magic adventure.

  • Due to ongoing construction and preparations of the New Amsterdam Theater for the premiere of Frozen on Broadway, from November 20, 2016 through January 2017, the costume room access will be replaced by an actual backstage experience. The backstage area of Broadway theaters has been off limits to public tours for decades, and hasn't been accessed by the public in the New Amsterdam in nearly a century. We ask that you strictly respect your tour guide's instructions while backstage to continue to allow us to offer this highly exclusive experience. Between January 2017 and July of 2018, the costume and prop access will be restored via a mobile cart brought into the orchestra section of the theater.
