Columbus Day Weekend October 6 – 9, 2023  



It was an amazing weekend and I don’t think we could possibly have seen three better shows – they were spectacular and such a terrific variety. They were all beyond my wildest dreams and a memory for a lifetime. The welcome dinner was delicious, lots of very nice people. The walking tour was incredible and we all did well! Lunch at Sardi’s was also delicious and meeting the actors was so enjoyable. Also the chat back was beyond our expectations.

The car service was really great – both drivers were terrific. Please know I’m sending hugs to our hosts – thank you!!

Come join us at one of the most beautiful times of year in New York City. NYC and Broadway are in the midst of an inspiring revival and we are inviting you to come and immerse yourself in that experience.

If splendid autumn temperatures and the season’s changing colors sound about right to you, we invite you to join us for Columbus Day weekend from October 6 – 9.  

With 18 months of a darkened Broadway having faded into history, 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, excellent tickets to 3 shows, 3 nights hotel at a 4-diamond theatre district hotel, two groups meals and more.

Complimenting an intimate and exquisite Q & A lunch at Sardi’s, your second day will feature a choice between the 2023 Tony Best Musical winner Kimberly Akimbo OR highly acclaimed new Neil Diamond musical A Beautiful Noise OR 9-time Tony nominee & Julietthe hilarious new musical that flips the script on the greatest love story ever told.

Friday morning tour selections segue into an engaging Q & A and exquisite lunch with a Broadway actor guest or two at Sardi’s, the famed Broadway district establishment.

Come early October, you just might find there’s no other place you would rather be than NYC. The weather can be expected to be at its finest with scenic fall foliage in Central Park and just the right temperatures both day and night. Meanwhile, the many details of your trip will be attended to by our dedicated staff.

After he’s sent away by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to London years later seeking his long-long family, and forms and unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop.  Together, they wreak havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London.
