The Bright Lights Of Broadway – New York City’s Tourism Jewel
There’s nothing like opening night of a new drama or musical on Broadway. There’s nothing like the bright lights of Broadway at night to tempt theater-resistant tourists. The world’s most famous musicals debuted on Broadway. Musicals like “42nd Street”, “Annie Get Your Gun”, “Gypsy” and “Hair” have already had two reproductions. Others are “West Side Story”, the long-running “Fantasticks”, “Cats”, the beloved “Fiddler On The Roof”, “Annie” and dramas like critically acclaimed “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff”, “Phantom of the Opera” or the amazing hi-tech “Spider Man”. Broadway is New York City’s tourism jewel.
The World Is A Stage And Broadway Is the World’s Stage
Several of Broadway’s famed stage plays became material for Hollywood movies. In fact, Hollywood stars often rely on a role in a Broadway show to rev up sagging acting careers. Conversely, many Hollywood stars began their careers with roles in Broadway plays. It’s important not to overlook the numerous directors, producers, choreographers and screen writers who contributed to the success of Broadway. Names like Florence Ziegfield, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, Jerome Kern, Arthur Laurents, Arthur Miller and Bob Fosse are Broadway legends.
