Historic Hudson Tours with Broadway Up Close
Journey back in time with Broadway Up Close’s Green Team Guides to 1903 as guests get a rare behind-the-scenes look at Broadway’s oldest theatre: The Hudson. This interior tour offers tour-goers an exclusive view of the nooks and crannies of this historic building that was restored in 2017 to its original glory after decades of narrowly avoiding demolition. Beginning at our kiosk in Times Square, tour-goers will be transported back to 1903 before stepping inside Hudson Theatre.
For over 100 years the theatre’s walls have witnessed tragedy, gangsters, and legends of pop culture, music, and Broadway who created iconic moments amid the glow of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s original lighting. For 90 minutes guests will bask in these stories told in the theatrical silence of an empty Broadway theater – a rare, one-of-a-kind experience to peek behind the curtain on Broadway! Utilizing iPads chock-full of rarely-seen photographs and videos from our intense research, tour-goers will see Hudson Theatre’s past and present merge before their eyes like never before.
Each Green Team Guide is a professional actor or stage manager who will interweave their personal stories to provide an up-close glimpse at the life of a theatrical artist as well.
