New York Broadway Shows

New York City is a unique combination of historical and modern relevance. It is full of buildings of contemporary value, apart from the architectural marvels from 19th and  early 20th century. The city attracts a large number of tourists, coming here all round the year to see the popular monuments through well organized New York Tours.

A great place to be in “Big Apple” is the Broadway theater district, renowned for having a number of landmark theaters. The perfect avenue to watch the famous New York Broadway Shows is the Eugene O' Neil theater, situated at  230 West 49th street . The theater has a simple facade outside, but when one step into this Shubert built and Krapp designed structure, they are sure to be spellbound by the exquisite Adamsque interiors. Opened for public viewing in 1925,  Eugene O' Neil theater has seen the curtains fall for more than 3000 times during its lifetime.

Another place representing the golden age of American theaters is the Shubert Theater, located at 225 West 44th Street adjacent to Broadway. This theater is named after Sam S. Shubert, belonging to one of the top theatrical producing families of  early 20th century America. Designed by the ace architect of that era, Henry Beaumont Herts, the Shubert Theater is pleasure to see with beautiful exteriors reminiscent of the Venetian Renaissance style. Stared in 1913 with a series of Shakespearean plays, the theater currently enjoys the status of being a designated New York City landmark.

Apart from the  Eugene O' Neil and Shubert Theater, NYC also has many other historic theaters inside its premises such as New Amsterdam, Booth theater and Palace theater. The best way to experience the magic of all these historical places is through well planned New York Tours.
