Vad du kommer att göra

I'll take you on a guided walk to all the Broadway theaters, from the Broadway to The New Amsterdam, ending up at famous Sardi's Restaurant for a farewell glass of wine. You'll learn about the history of each theater: who sang on what stages, juicy gossip, anecdotes, even ghost stories. Along the way, I will show you rare photos of how the theaters looked in their heyday from 1905 to the present. Hear the story of famed George M. Cohan statue and other lore. As we walk, I'll talk about my career, writings, and what it was like to work with Ethel Merman, Mary Martin, Chita Rivera, Gavin McLeod, Marlo Thomas, Marni Nixon, and many others. As the winter weather hits, remember that NYC never shuts down and if we wear warm coats and hats and gloves, we can see all the great sights of Broadway and wind up at Sardi's for a nice warming glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Rest room breaks upon request!
Other things to note
Bring a camera, water, snacks, and good walking shoes. Dress warm for the winter weather and if there is rain or snow in the forecast, bring an umbrella. Please note that masks must be worn during the tour.

I am a friendly, gregarious & fun host. As a long time writer of musicals, I will tell you inside stories and histories about Broadway and Times Square. From the ghosts that haunt the theatres to the stars I knew well, I will bring you into the inner circle of Broadway and its stars, both past and present. My produced musicals include "After the Fair," "The Road to Qatar!", & "Casper." I also wrote the first American musical to premiere in the Middle East, "Aspire." I have guided hundreds of visitors on this Broadway tour through theater history. For more about me see www.stephencolewriter.org

Our experience with Stephen is like no other! He covered the entire two hours with rich knowledge rang from background history, architecture to inside story of not only individual theaters, also the Times Square, being home to The Broadway. Stephen is friendly, enthusiastic and interesting, we can’t thank him more for showing us the theatre district from a different angle! Thank you again Stephen!

Stephen's knowledge and passion for Broadway history is both deep and infectious. He adds a unique perspective as he was friends with several Broadway legends. I would unreservedly recommend this experience for any theatre enthusiast.

Stephen was a wealth of knowledge, he knew the history about all of the Broadway theaters. He has a thorough knowledge of the industry past and present. I left appreciating so much of the history there is in the Broadway District. I would highly recommend this tour.

I had the best time learning about the history of Broadway theaters from a master story teller and theater historian. And ending the tour at Sardi's, well, who could ask for anything more?
