Here at Your Broadway Genius, we’ve got all the tips to maximize your Broadway (or Off-Broadway) experience. Follow these tips, and you’ll be a pro in no time!
- Are you used to buying snacks and drinks in a movie theater before the movie begins? On Broadway, they sell snacks and drinks, too…for twice the price! Since most theaters do not allow you bring outside food into the house, we recommend you eat beforehand and save your wallet!
- Before the show there will usually be an announcement asking the audience members to silence all cell phones and electronics before the show. Genius Tip #2 is to go one step further and just turn them off. Even if your phone is on vibrate only, vibrations can still make a loud noise, especially if your phone goes off during a quiet moment in a show. Also, certain apps still make noise even if the phone is on silent, particularly alarm apps, reminders, music, maps, etc. You can check all these things individually, turn off vibrate, and manually lower your media and ringer volume. Your best bet though is to turn your phone off for a couple of hours and enjoy the show.
- If you are with a group of people, establish your post-show meeting spot before entering the theater and make sure everyone knows how to get there. Depending on the size and age range of your group, it might be helpful to meet somewhere outside the theater, since most people in the theater are trying to leave and you don’t want to get in their way or block them in.
- Bring a bag if you’re thinking of keeping your Playbill or ticket. If you get a souvenir from the show, they’ll usually give you a bag, but the size of the bag may depend on what you get.
