Winter has hit NYC full blast and this is the time when Guerrilla Tours hunkers down for a couple of months, out of the weather, to create new experiences for Spring. Public tours will continue when the weather gets warmer.
Guerrilla Tours brings its unique brand of walking tour experiences to the Broadway theatre district with Broadway or Bust. Broadway or Bust is a historical walking tour performed by actors that explores the Broadway theatre district in New York City. The tour starts in Shubert Alley and lasts for about two hours. During that time, the tour winds and twists through the crowded Times Square streets exploring things that even die-hard New Yorkers don't know exist. Along the way, the guides discuss how the area grew to become the commercial theatre hub of the world. Audiences take a look at the theatres that housed all the magic and learn the behind-the-scenes stories of some of our country's most beloved performers and the shows that launched them to stardom. In a unique twist, the group also follows along as hometown girl, Suzie Wanamaker, struggles to make her dreams come true here in the Big Bad Apple. She sings, she dances, and she keeps the audience in stitches for much of the tour. And when it's all said and done, guests leave knowing where there favorite show is playing and the secret ins and outs of scoring those hard to come by tickets. Not only are they thoroughly entertained, but they learn a thing or two as well.
It's a tour and a show - all rolled into one exciting experience. Cast members include Justin Roller, Paul Pakler, Trai Allgeier and Renee Colvert (currently in Girls Night: The Musical, Off-Broadway). Guerrilla Tours proves that history can be fun!
So 'come on along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway'. You'll laugh, you'll cry - it may not be better than Cats, but it's pretty darn close!
