Our SHUBERT BROTHERS & BEYOND TOUR will explore all of the Broadway theaters in the middle of the Broadway theatre district from 44th Street to 46th Street. As Times Square transformed from an area full of manure and horse stables to one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world, a battle for Broadway was brewing between a group of theatrical titans and three scrappy brothers with the last name of Shubert. Set against the backdrop of Broadway's most famous theaters, tour-goers will hear about the Shubert Brothers who monopolized Broadway against all odds with the help of an awkwardly named architect. Add in the true origins of the Tony Awards and rarely heard stories from famous musicals ranging from Oklahoma! to Hamilton and we promise you'll walk away with a new appreciation for just how far Broadway has come over the past 100 years. Utilizing iPads chock full of rarely seen photographs and videos from years of research, tour-goers will see Broadway's past and present merge before their eyes.

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.

We took the ACT I Tour during our last visit to NY and couldn't wait to get back for ACT II. Tim and his team are all actors, so they have so much inside information. If you are crazy about Broadway and the theatre in general these tours are an absolute must, we loved them.

I took ACT II and loved every second of it! I did ACT I a few years ago with my mom (who still says it was her favorite part of our trip!). I found the history, anecdotes and quirks of Broadway to be fascinating. If you are a musical theatre, Broadway or history fan DO NOT MISS!!

When my husband and I headed to New York a couple weeks ago, a BUC tour and a Broadway show were our only must-dos! A cold NYC day, Tim came bearing hand warmers and off we went to hear his amazing insights and stories as we passed theater after theater! The two hours flew by and left us wanting for more! I wholeheartedly recommend BUC tours - don't settle for any other!
