We had Micaela as our guide and she was full of information. We booked a group tour but got a private tour instead which made it all the more special! We loved the studio tour at the end aa we got to explore the different rooms and perform. Highly Recommend! *make sure to leave your phone number in case times square is busy. They give you a meeting spot but allows them to contact you just in case

Mickey is a wonderful guide. As a practicing actor for many years, she knows the history of theater in NYC and tells stories about many of the theaters and personalities who have built and maintain the NYC theater industry. She teaches acting and diction and took us to visit the studio and black box theater where their students learn and create productions before live audiences. This is a really worthwhile tour for anyone seriously interested in NY theater.
