Due to ongoing construction and preparations of the New Amsterdam Theatre 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 theatres 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 theatre.

  • We loved every minute of the tour. Collin was an outstanding guide. He was knowledgeable and interesting bringing the history of Broadway to life. It was fantastic hearing about the life of a Broadway actor from someone with real world experience. The guides at the New Amsterdam theater were amazing too. Their enthusiasm and energy were contagious. We thoroughly enjoyed trying on the costumes and pretending for a moment that we were on the big stage. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a look into all that is Broadway.

  • Great experience for both kids and adults. Got the tour as a gift to my dad who loves theater he took his grand kids it was an unforgettable experience

  • Fairly interesting, gotta love the trying on the costumes. For anyone with kids and who Broadway give this a go.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Excellent guide told us about the history of Broadway as we walked past the theaters. He had photos to show us what it was like back in the early days. Then we went into the Majestic Theater where Aladdin is playing. Disney guides told us about that theater, let us walk on the stage and backstage, and then let us take pictures with costumes from various Disney productions. Enjoyed by all ages in our group.

  • This tour was very informational and so much fun! Our tour guide, Corey wish I had his full name I would completely recommend him to anyone wanting to quench their knowledge of the theater district. He was very engaging, pleasant and most importantly a plethora of great information.

    I enjoyed trying on the costumes, just wished it wasn't so rushed. It still made for a great time. The staff at the New Amsterdam theater were also wonderful.

  • Being the huge Disney fan that I am I LOVED this tour. The tour was full of Broadway and Disney history but the highlight was going to the New Amsterdam Theatre where Aladdin is currently playing. We got to use props and try on hats and costumes from Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King...it was a lot of fun!

  • Very interesting, informative and dive-inside tour.
    The guide was very friendly and talked us a lot of history and interesting details about Broadway theatrical life and all around it.
    Dressing behind the scenes of Disney shows - that's a real gem!

  • My daughter and I went on this tour on November 12. Our tour guide is an actor who has been in Broadway productions, television commercials, and a television pilot. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We started out with a walking tour of the Great White Way and then learned the history of the New Amsterdam Theater. We finished up in the prop room and got to pose with various props from Lion King, Aida, Newsies, Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid. It highly recommend it!

  • FANTASTIC TOUR!!! The tour guide, Jeff, was so informative, fun and full of facts from beginning to end! We learned so much about the history of Broadway, theater, historic figures, ghosts and legends. We walked over several blocks to different theaters with Jeff giving great historical info on all of them. The highlight for our 10-year-old granddaughters was trying on the costumes at the end in the New Amsterdam Theater. It was really such a worthwhile way to spend out time and money. I have already recommended this tour to others. Thanks again to Jeff and Viator!
