“My son and I are most grateful to both of you for a delightful weekend. Our shows were so much fun. The theatre tour was fascinating. And the meals were excellent -far better than I expected. You took wonderfully good care of us. It was one of the best trips I have made in some time. I have a lot of happy memories about this tour and my son was thrilled by the experience. Thank you very much.”

Robert L. & Son –Broadway Across America Guests



Broadway Across America is excited to announce the return of our “Take the Kids to Broadway!” experience specifically with the kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews in mind who would love nothing more than to experience a Summer 2023 weekend in New York City.
This could be just the birthday or graduation gift you are looking for – the ultimate adventure this summer to the Big Apple, including great tickets to three of Broadway’s top shows such as Wicked, Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Aladdin and The Lion King – roundtrip airfare, 4-diamond accommodations, exclusive tour experiences and much more!
Offered for four sets of summer date choices, this trip is loaded with fun stuff that you and the kids will enjoy with the same premium level of service that is the hallmark of each of our theatre excursions.
Summer in the city just might be your destiny in 2023.
Speaking of destiny… a Broadway destiny seemed a certainty the moment Harry Potter and the Cursed Child became a remarkable success story in London’s West End just a few years ago. And now the story of the world’s most famous young wizard is in full magical effect on Broadway –and with similarly spectacular acclaim and box office success.

And then there’s Wicked, the “ever green” smash Broadway success which introduces the witches of Oz before Dorothy dropped in. With a broad appeal across demographics, Wicked might just be the one “must see” show choice among the options offered in this package.

And for some, one or both of the Disney’s classics – The Lion King or Aladdin – might be just the right fit.
Speaking of the show choices… don’t see one listed here that’d you love to see? Ask us about show substitutions. Maybe it’s Six, the sizzling sensation from London’s West End or Back to the Future, the iconic film turned musical which garnered the Olivier Best Musical honors in the West End and time warps its way onto Broadway this summer.
Or it could be a show the “adults” really want to see on this trip like Moulin Rouge. Just let us know!
We have more in store for you than amazing theatrical performances. Your trip’s featured elements include private town car service, two group meals and your choice of fascinating walking and interactive tour experiences.
The kids will love our traditional Q & A lunch where they will meet and take photos with ask questions of our actor guests from the weekend’s shows.
Our “Take the Kids to Broadway!” excursions will really have you looking forward to next summer – with the promise of excellent show tickets, exclusive experiences and a lot of fun throughout your stay.
Leave the stresses of planning behind and let us put together a memorable excursion to New York City.
Come join us in summer 2023!

Show Overviews:


Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.

”Visually stunning, Wicked boasts a soaring score from Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin) that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good, Tony Award-winning sets and costumes and some of the most gravity-defying moments on the Great White Way. Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.”

“The most complete, and completely satisfying, musical I’ve come across in a long time.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, received its world premiere in June 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London, where it plays to sold-out houses.

The critically acclaimed play has won 22 major theatre awards in the UK and is the most-awarded play in the history of Britain’s prestigious Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director.


The beloved Disney story is brought to thrilling theatrical life.

In the middle-eastern town of Agrabah, Princess Jasmine is feeling hemmed in by her father’s desire to find her a royal groom. Meanwhile, the Sultan’s right-hand man, Jafar, is plotting to take over the throne. When Jasmine sneaks out of the palace incognito, she forms an instant connection with Aladdin, a charming street urchin and reformed thief.

After being discovered together, Aladdin is sentenced to death, but Jafar saves him by ordering him to fetch a lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Where there’s a lamp, there’s a Genie, and once Aladdin unwittingly lets this one out, anything can happen! Will Aladdin’s new identity as “Prince Ali” help him win Jasmine’s heart and thwart Jafar’s evil plans? Will the Genie’s wish for freedom ever come true?

Back to the Future

Welcome to Hill Valley! Marty McFly is a rock ‘n’ roll teenager accidentally transported back to 1955 in a time-travelling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown. But before he can return to 1985, Marty must make sure his high-school-aged parents fall in love in order to save his own existence. Marty’s in a race against time to fix the present, escape the past and send himself… back to the future!”

Tim Hatley’s stunning, multi-dimensional design –thrillingly meshing physical production, lighting, projection, sound and hydraulics –lifts what threatened to be a movie retread into a live entertainment triumph.”

The Lion King
Pride Rock comes to life in Disney’s long-running hit. A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands.
When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts a new. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.

With a pulsing spectacle driven by primal African rhythms, unforgettable tunes (including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Oscar-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”) and a jaw-dropping display of exotic African wildlife brought to life onstage, there are good reasons why The Lion King won a half-dozen Tony Awards in 1998. Intensely physical stage work and countless visual surprises hold your attention from start to finish.
