It’s Spring on Broadway



See the Stars with Skylight Limo!



Every year, over 13 million people take in Broadway’s shows at one of 40 venues. At NYNY Limo, we carry many a theater lover in our posh and elegant vehicles to and from award winning shows every day of the year!

From star-studded bleary-eyed revivals to Tony-winning mega-musicals or intimate arthouse plays, there’s a show for every theatrically inclined audience member that walks through the doors at on of the old Broadway’s temples to drama. These lavish and elegant theaters are the pieces-de-resistance of turn-of-the-century classical revivalist design and often play host to the biggest budget shows every spring.

You may be surprised to know that not all “Broadway” shows occur at venues on Broadway or even in the Manhattan Theater District – an area that roughly encompasses 41st to 52nd Street between 6th and 8th Avenue. In fact, many of this season’s most sought after theater events are opening at venues all over the city. With so many offerings, it can be hard to pick which show to see, especially if you’re a tourist with only so much time to spend sitting in a dark theater. When there’s so much outside in a New York Spring to see and be seen in, you’ll probably only be taking in a small smattering of theatrical delights in the next few coming months.

Which is why your theater buffs at NYNY Limo present a small list of our April-May on Broadway favorites:

Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Cort Theatre 138 W 48th St, between Sixth and Seventh Aves.

Fred is a young writer from Louisiana who meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and enigmatic good-time girl. Everyone is in love with Holly—including Fred. But Fred is competing with Holly’s other suitors: a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As the war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall head over heels for Fred, just as her past catches up with her.

The Book of Mormon: Eugene O’Neill Theatre 230 W 49th St

“The Book of Mormon” follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to try to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. One missionary, Elder Price, is an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith, while his partner, Elder Cunningham, is a socially awkward but well meaning nerd whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble. Upon their arrival in Africa, Elders Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected.

The Assembled Parties: Samuel J Friedman Theatre  261 W 47th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue.

THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES welcomes us to the world of the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In a sprawling Central Park West apartment, former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for their traditional holiday dinner. But tonight, things are not usual. A houseguest has joined the festivities for the first time and he unwittingly – or perhaps by design – insinuates himself into the family drama. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs’ seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble.
