A beloved American art form, the Broadway Musical has its foundation almost entirely comprised of Jewish composers, lyricists, theater owners, restauranteurs, and producers. Along with Broadway historian and founder of Broadway Up Close Walking Tours Tim Dolan as our guide, we will explore the iconic Jewish figures who helped shape this billion-dollar Broadway industry that began with one bowl of life-changing matzoh ball soup! With rare historic photos, detailed stories, trivia questions, and a live chat, virtual tour-goers will see Broadway in a whole new light. This event will take place at 7:00 PM EST.

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.
