After you have purchased the tickets to your favorite show, you are advised to follow the so-called “Broadway Etiquette”. Most shows have their curtain time at 7:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m. and the doors are typically open 30 minutes before the start of the performance. If you have a seat in the center of the room, you should use this time and arrive early enough to avoid climbing to your seat over other guests. Furthermore, latecomers usually have to wait to be seated until the first break. You also need to consider, that attending Broadway Shows is not like going to the cinema - So make sure you don’t arrive hungry, because crunchy snacks are not allowed during a show. Last but not least, this should be an obvious rule: Turn off your mobile phone and don’t talk during a performance. Following this etiquette will guarantee an exceptional Broadway experience not only for you and the other guests, but also for the actors.
1. Theater and curtain time depend on the show selected and will be announced at time of confirmation. Seat number will be given when collecting tickets from the Theater Box Office. 2. All Broadway Shows in NYC are in English.
