TESTIMONIAL:

“Thank you for the great trip! I can’t believe it’s over. I guess that just means I need plan for the next one!

Everything was wonderful, the major details were handled, even the weather cooperated – all I needed to do was plan my free time.

It was my first trip to New York and definitely won’t be my last. There still so many things I want to see. Thank you for everything – you exceeded my expectations.”

Gail D. (Orange, CA) – Autumn Escape Guest

PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:

Broadway Across America is pleased to extend this invitation to join us for our seventh annual pre-Thanksgiving special edition package offering a taste of the holidays in New York City before the peak season and hustle and bustle of the crowds arrive in force – not to mention everything that is woven into our theatre experiences! 

This trip might be just the chance you are seeking – that getaway you have been putting off far too long. If this sounds like it could be for you, please read on for the trip details of this very special Broadway weekend.

Broadway is writing a heart-warming comeback story for the ages and Broadway Across America is looking forward to welcoming you back as our guests since last Fall.

And if splendid autumn temperatures and the season’s changing colors sound about right to you, we invite you to come join us for the return of our Autumn Escape to NYC experience from November 17 – 20, 2022.

Our patrons can once again count on the familiar core elements of the BAA travel experience including airfare, roundtrip private town car/SUV transfers between airport and hotel, 3 nights hotel at a 4-diamond theatre district hotel, two groups meals and more.

Now in our 17th year, our reputation for personable customer service and attention to detail are going next level in 2022!

Here’s a sense of how your Broadway weekend will take shape:

Following a festive welcome dinner with your fellow Broadway Across America patrons, the weekend gets underway with your choice of first show from among 10-time Tony Award nominee MJ The Musical, the life story of Michael Jackson which has been blowing away audiences with its story telling, smash hit catalog and, of course, its dancing and 9-time Tony nominee Company, Sondheim’s quintessential musical comedy and 9-time Tony Award nominee and its search for love and cocktails in the Big Apple, reimagined for today.

The next morning our program continues with a theatre or walking tour experience from among choices we will provide. From there we segue into an engaging Q & A and exquisite lunch with a Broadway actor guest or two at Sardi’s, the famed Broadway district establishment.

On Friday, it looks like a tough choice from either Six, the riveting new London import and 8-time Tony Award nominee including Best Musical, and its tantalizing take on the wives of Henry VIII OR Funny Girl which stars Beanie Feldstein as Fanny Brice in the first Broadway revival of this classic musical since Barbra Streisand more than 50 years ago!

Finally on Saturday, your weekend finishes on a high note with your selection of either Paradise Square, the new musical and 10-time Tony Award nominee which tells the galvanizing story of racial harmony undone by a country at war with itself OR the iconic Chicago, the Tony Award-winning revival and the tantalizing murder mystery intrigue of its roaring 20s “jazz hot” setting.

Come mid-November, you just might find there’s no other place you would rather be than NYC. Come and experience the early feel of the holiday season before the big crowds arrive.

Meanwhile, the many details of your trip will be attended to by our dedicated staff.

Show Overviews:

SIX
The Olivier Award-nominated hit musical is headed to Broadway! Six centers on the six ex-wives of King Henry VIII, who headline an electrifying pop-concert spectacle—flipping the narrative on the one-sided story from our history books.

Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.

From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the SIX wives of Henry VIII take the mic to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st century girl power! This new original musical is the global sensation that everyone is losing their head over. The Evening Standard hails SIX as “the most uplifting new British musical I have ever had the privilege to watch.”

Funny Girl

This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.

Featuring some of the most iconic songs in theatre history including “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People,” Michael Mayer’s bold new production marks the first time Funny Girl will return to Broadway since its debut 58 years ago. The original production of Funny Girl premiered on Broadway in 1964 starring Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice and was nominated for eight Tony Awards including Best Musical.

MJ

MJ is the electrifying new Broadway musical that takes audiences inside the creative process of one of the greatest entertainers in history. Featuring over 25 of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits, MJ allows us to rediscover the man in the mirror – with an explosion of music and theatricality as unforgettable as the artist himself.

Chicago

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, this Tony-winning revival of Kander and Ebb’s musical tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

Paradise Square

New York, 1863. As the Civil War rages on, free Black Americans and Irish immigrants live and love together in the unlikeliest of neighborhoods – the dangerous streets and crumbling tenement houses of Lower Manhattan’s notorious Five Points slum. The amalgamation between the communities took its most exuberant form with raucous dance contests on the floors of the neighborhood bars and dance halls. It is here in the Five Points where tap dancing was born. But this racial equilibrium would come to a sharp and brutal end when President Lincoln’s need to institute the first Federal Draft to support the Union Army would incite the deadly NY Draft Riots of July 1863.

Within this galvanizing story of racial harmony undone by a country at war with itself, we meet the denizens of a local saloon called Paradise Square. These characters include the indomitable Black woman who owns it; her Irish-Catholic sister-in-law and her Black minister husband; a conflicted newly arrived Irish immigrant; a fearless freedom seeker; an anti-abolitionist political boss; and a penniless songwriter trying to capture it all. They have conflicting notions of what it means to be an American while living through one of the most tumultuous eras in our country’s history.

With visceral and nuanced staging and choreography that captures the pulsating energy when Black and Irish cultures meet and set to a contemporary score that reimagines early American song, Paradise Square depicts an overlooked true-life moment when hope and possibility shone bright.

Company
The quintessential musical comedy about the search for love and cocktails in the Big Apple is turned on its head in Marianne Elliott’s revelatory staging, in which musical theater’s most iconic bachelor becomes a bachelorette. At Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, all her friends are wondering why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man? And, why can’t she settle down and have a family? This whip smart musical, given a game-changing makeover for a modern-day Manhattan, features some of Sondheim’s best loved songs, including “Company,” “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side,” and the iconic “Being Alive.”
