36 Hours on Broadway

       Several years ago The New York Times published a suggested itinerary for spending a weekend on Broadway, including 4 Broadway shows.  I thought it would be worthwhile to share that with you, so I’ve included it in this post.  Because some of their suggested shows are no longer running, I’ve substituted the current show at each theater they suggested visiting. 

       6:15 pm Friday – enjoy dinner at Chez Josephine on West 42nd Street, where you can try escargots and boudin noir

       7:45 pm Friday – be at the Lyceum Theatre for Ghetto Klown with John Leguizamo (the show at the time of the article was The Lieutenant of Inishmore)

       10:15 pm Friday – enjoy a Gibson at Angus McIndoe on West 44th Street, where you may well see some Broadway stars enjoying a late dinner

       Noon on Saturday – have coffee and toast at the Edison Café on West 47th Street, a favorite haunt of playwright August Wilson

       1:45 pm Saturday – take in the matinee show of Spring Awakening at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre (the show in the article was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street)

       5:00 pm Saturday – stroll through Madame Tussaud’s on West 42nd Street

       6:15 pm Saturday – eat dinner at the crowded, energized, and very New York Joe Allen’s in Restaurant Row on West 46th Street

       7:45 pm Saturday – be at the Friedman (formerly Biltmore) Theatre to enjoy Good People with Frances McDormand (Shining City was the recommended show)

       10:00 pm Saturday – Enjoy a nightcap at Bar Centrale upstairs from Joe Allen’s, a bar frequented by Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker

       1:00 pm Sunday – have lunch in the garden of Barbetta in Restaurant Row on West 46th Street

       2:45 pm Sunday – get ready to enjoy Jersey Boys, still running at the August Wilson Theater.

       It could be a packed and exciting weekend on Broadway – and of course, get your reservations and tickets in advance.  Even if you can’t spend the entire weekend, try to take in at least a few of these highlights…
