Every night when the thousands of audience members leave the 41 Broadway theaters, a nightly ritual takes place unseen by most: the setting of the ghostlight. In June, Broadway historian Tim Dolan led Rodeph Sholom on a virtual tour through the history of Jewish influence on Broadway. Now, join Tim for in-person walking tour as we explore the ghostlight, and other superstitions rooted in days gone by but still held by theatre folk everywhere.
This event is for CRS Members Only.

Broadway Up Close strives to give you a “behind-the-scenes” look at Broadway theatre. All guides are professional working actors and stage managers in addition to being licensed tour guides. Being a part of “show business,” 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. To see Tim’s work in action, click here.
