TOUR STARTS HERE
Here at Broadway Up Close we strive to give you a "behind-the-scenes" look at Broadway theatre. All our guides are professional working actors and stage managers in addition to being licensed tour guides. Being a part of "show business", our guides can give you insider info and stories from current and past shows that have graced the Broadway arena. Theatre-goers have been flocking to "The Great White Way" for decades for one reason: to hear a story. And for an hour and forty-five minutes you'll hear those tales, from the flops and disasters to the successes and legends.

"I have worked in several of the theaters that BUC talked about and I learned new things that I would have never known. I'm so happy I took this tour and am looking forward to going on Act II and Act III!"
Hamilton, Cinderella, Tuck Everlasting, Bring It On: The Musical, So You Think You Can Dance
"I’m still talking about things that I learned on my ACT I Tour. As a Broadway performer, having a knowledge of how my industry came to be makes me feel even more connected to an art form that I love so much. And I get to impress friends and family that come to visit with anecdotes I picked up. Or, if they’re here long enough, I just send them to BUC!"
Paramour, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of The Opera
"I thought I knew everything there was to know about Broadway (That’s not true, I don’t know anything...) but the Broadway Up Close tours made a believer out of this bitter old cynic. Every second was doused with fascinating information. I would go again. And again...till I memorized all of it!"
Hairspray, The Addams Family, Xanadu, On The Town
