It was amazing and Lucas was so knowledgeable about all the Broadway theatres
Everything was memorable. We will recommend this tour to everyone especially to all of our theatre friends that come to New York. I found out all about theatres that I never knew and even my theatre loving kid learned some things too

The interior design motifs subtly reflect those of the more ornate neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters designed by Henry B. Herts.
