Friends and supporters,

We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of our Indiegogo campaign for My Alexandra. This moment has been in the works for nearly 6 months and, today, we are so happy that it is finally here. On this page, you will be informed of our financial goals and of exclusive perks you can earn by contributing. You will also be able to watch the full trailer for the campaign and read up on the creative team behind the play. This whole project has been a labour of love for all of us here at Alighne Media & Productions, LLC. We are passionate to bring the struggles of mental health to the stage in a production that we feel is long overdue. To the people that have followed us on this journey so far, we are incredibly grateful and want to thank you. Your support has meant the world to us. Please click on the link above to contribute and, together, we can bring My Alexandra to life.

Remember when I asked where you would produce your show if actual theaters didn't exist? Here are a few inspirations from Broadway Up Close . Time to get innovative!
Our friend Tim Dolan (aka Broadway Up Close) went on a theater history field trip to the ROOF of New Victory Theater recently with staff members Colleen, Rachel, Mike & Julien. They explored where a farm(!) used to be, and compared the current roof to pics of what it looked like 121 years ago.

Thanks so much for sharing your "theatrical insanity" with us, Tim!
(Psst.. one day closer 💕❤️)
So do you just know every person who works at the Post Office? Do they see you coming with your green packages of love and just say - Hi Tim!

Green Team Guide John was joined by a group of visitors from all over the country on our Broadway's Beginnings Tour. Full of excellent leading questions, energy, and joy, this group tour was the perfect way to spend the morning. We hope to see them on our Broadway sidewalks again soon!

Take one look at these smiling faces of the eager, intelligent, and energetic tour-goers who joined us in this last week! Our Broadway sidewalks continue to fill up with friends from in and out of town. Will you be joining us on an upcoming tour?

If you’re in this week’s “Selfie Sunday,” share to your story! 💚

After joining for nearly all of our virtual tours during the pandemic, we loved having Patrick and Susan on our Broadway sidewalks IN PERSON! They joined Green Team Owner Tim for our Shubert Brothers & Beyond Tour and boy, did they have wonderful, thoughtful questions! We loved doing a deep dive into Broadway's architecture with them before they headed to see Aladdin - The Musical and Hamilton !

Green Team Guide Rhiannon was joined by Julie, who traveled from Texas, on our Shubert Brothers & Beyond Tour. With a stage manager history, this tour-goer was excited to learn about Broadway contracts and revisit the site of her first ever Broadway show: Prelude to a Kiss, at the Hayes Theatre, which she saw during her tenure in New York City in the 90s. We were delighted to get to know you, Julie!

We loved having David and Scott join us on our Broadway sidewalks! David, from New Mexico, and Scott, from Chicago, joined Green Team Owner Tim for our Broadway's Beginnings Tour before they both headed to see matinees. Between the two of them they are seeing an impressive lineup of shows, so we loved hearing about all of their exciting theatre-going experiences!

This week's #FridayFave is the sensational Kathy Perkins! The lighting designer for @roundaboutnyc's Trouble in Mind, Kathy is making her Broadway debut! Looking at her extensive resume of credits, it seems Broadway is one of the only things she HADN'T done until this point. Her successful career spans so many theaters, places, and shows. We're honored she stopped by our signature sign to celebrate this milestone of making it to Broadway herself as part of this historic reopening!

Last night Green Team Owner Tim headed down to Atlantic Theater Company for a preview performance of #KimberlyAkimbo by Jeanine Tesori and David-Lindsay Abaire. This sweet, emotional musical wears its heart on its sleeve!

Look at all the new musicals happening off-Broadway too! Many hit shows start off in smaller spaces in NYC or out of town before making it to one of our 41 Broadway houses. What shows have you seen before they were big hits?

New Year’s Eve Will Return to Times Square for Vaccinated Guests 11/17/2021

New Year’s Eve Will Return to Times Square for Vaccinated Guests

The tradition lives on! The iconic New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square is back (ball drop and all) this year for vaccinated attendees. Our very own Green Team Owner Tim was even interviewed about this global tradition and its significance to so many. Have you ever participated in NYE in Times Square?

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/16/nyregion/new-years-eve-times-square.html

New Year’s Eve Will Return to Times Square for Vaccinated Guests The event will return at “full strength” after pared-back festivities last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. People will have to show proof that they are fully vaccinated to attend.

Green Team Guide Danielle was joined at last by Jeremy and Eden on our Broadway's Beginnings Tour. Originally planned for March 2020, we're thrilled this duo of theatre aficionados was finally able to come along. Their visit to NYC is brimming with Broadway, including visits to Come From Away, Hadestown , Jagged Little Pill, and SIX on Broadway in addition to the Showstoppers exhibit.

There's another redhead behind the BUC social media these days: please join us in welcoming our new social media manager, Dylan MacDowell.

Since Green Team Owner Tim is busy running the show (literally running if you’ve seen his Insta-stories) at Broadway Up Close, you might hear from Dylan from time to time. Don't worry, Tim isn't going anywhere!

Tim was looking for someone who was Broadway-immersed, fun, out-going, and was familiar with our tours. It just so happens that Dylan first joined with his family for a BUC Tour in January of 2012! (Back when it was an “I HEART BUC” sticker instead of a souvenir lanyard!!) He has since become a BUC Hall-of-Famer having joined for many tours, and is especially partial to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre for its namesake, history, and having housed many of his favorite shows.

Swipe through for end-of-tour photos of Dylan and the MacDowell family through the years, and be sure to welcome him to our team! 💚

This trio joined Green Team Guide John for a "nonstop" fun HamilTour in honor of Carly's birthday. They're lucky to also make a stop at the Richard Rodgers Theatre to see Hamilton, equipped with all the history and trivia behind it. What a special day to celebrate - thanks for joining us!

Phone rings, door chimes, in returns Company Broadway to the Jacobs Theatre! This gender-reimagined production of the great Sondheim musical was in its early previews when it shut down with the rest of Broadway in 2020. We'd like to propose a toast to Company!

Green Team Owner Tim already trekked through this "city of strangers" to 44th Street to drop off our Custom Ticket Stubs to the cast and crew. Check out our IG story to see the fun from earlier!

The Schoenfeld looks a little different on this #MarqueeMonday, as it's exterior has been redecorated for one night only in honor of the @Tick...Tick...Boom! film premiere. This marks the first time that Jonathan Larson's semi-autobiographical musical is actually "on" Broadway, as it has had live productions off-Broadway, on the West End, regionally, and internationally since its 2001 debut.

The movie, directed by Lin Manuel Miranda and starring Andrew Garfield, will stream on Netflix beginning 11/19. But tonight, New Yorkers get a Broadway-style viewing of the latest entry into the movie musical canon.

Our Shubert Brothers & Beyond Tour proved to be a hit with Heather, Tyler, Kelly, and Chris. Led by Green Team Guide Theresa, this group was delighted to see Jeff Daniels entering the Shubert Theatre stage door for To Kill a Mockingbird. We're so happy this mix of NYC newcomers and returning visitors made BUC part of their weekend.

As you can tell in this week's #SelfieSunday, it was a week of smiles, sunny days, and so much fun at Broadway Up Close! Our sidewalks were overflowing with newbie tour-goers as well as those on their way to the BUC Hall of Fame. Everyone brought amazing energy and excitement to match the return of shows in our 41 Broadway theaters.

We're nearly halfway through November and tomorrow we lace up our shoes for another week of Broadway magic. Let us know if you joined us or plan to soon!

Green Team Owner Tim had a wonderful group along for our HamilTour on Friday morning before heading to a celebratory birthday lunch. Hall-of-Famer Jocelyn was back on our Broadway sidewalks in celebration of her birthday, this time with her mom Loretta, and friends Sheila and Whitney. Jocelyn is always such a joy to have on our sidewalks, and this time was no exception.

Broadway is quintessential to the very fabric of New York City, just like the MTA. This new campaign is an extraordinary nod to the famous 1977 ad stating that the subway was “the only sure way to make it to Broadway." Updating this historic campaign for a new generation highlights how important Broadway is to the fabric of this city, with both its iconic characters (we’re looking at you, Chicago!) and its new faces (Hi, Mrs. Doubtfire!).

Louise and Meghan joined Green Team Guide Morgan for a lovely route of our Broadway's Beginnings Tour. With lots of interesting questions, an enjoyable experience, and some Belasco Theatre admiration, we're so glad these ladies checked out BUC. We hope to see them both on another tour soon!

It's no secret we love dogs here at Broadway Up Close. Our #FridayFave is the fabulous Manhattan Morkie, Tasha Belle. This pretty pup visited our Broadway sign for a photoshoot fit for a diva. Thanks for stopping by! We hope even more friends will visit our booth in Times Square to celebrate Broadway's return in style, just like Tasha Belle.

Just like magic, two become one as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child returns to the Lyric Theatre as a newly-single performance evening of witches and wizards! No matter what Hogwarts house audiences belong to, they will surely be spellbound by this Tony-winning Best Play on 43rd Street once more.

Green Team Owner Tim will be heading to the stage door (by foot, not broomstick) to drop off these Custom Ticket Stubs to the company ahead of their theatrical transfiguration tonight. Join him on IG Story!

When Green Team Owner Tim began Broadway Up Close in 2010 he utilized the beautiful theaters as the framework to tell our stories. We've marveled at the singularity of each of the 41 Broadway marquees ever since, and so in 2020, he began a 10 year mission to recreate every one.

Each year we will be releasing four marquee ornaments - interpreting them both literally and figuratively for a keepsake that will bring these beautiful theaters to life even if you're not standing in Times Square!

For our 2021 collection we are featuring four theaters that played a pivotal role in the reopening of Broadway. Swipe through to see each ornament, including:

August Wilson Theatre Marquee Ornament (2021) - home to the first post-pandemic play: Passover
New Amsterdam Theatre Marquee Ornament (2021) - home to the first post-pandemic concert: Disney at the New Am
St. James Theatre Marquee Ornament (2021) - home to the first post-pandemic musical act: Springsteen on Broadway
Winter Garden Theatre Marquee Ornament (2021) - home to the 2020 Tony Awards

Each ornament is handmade in NYC by our Green Team and imbued with Broadway love and magic. Curtains up on our 2021 Marquee Ornament Collection!

And CONGRATS to our raffle winner Lori Jurek!
