Tour Guides Up Close: Theresa Flanagan

In creating Broadway Up Close it has always been important to me to be surrounded by a staff of highly talented theatre professionals that are as excited as I am to share the joy and wonder of a life in the theatre. As we continue to update our website with photos and bios of each of our staff members I thought it would be nice to get an even more in-depth "snapshot" of them individually. Below is our Broadway Up Close Questionnaire filled out by one of our most senior tour guides: Theresa Flanagan!

Thanks for reading and see you on the sidewalk!
