The Ultimate Resource for Everything New York Delivers a Special Broadway Experience

NEW YORK, (July 30, 2013) — NewYork.com takes users up close and personal with the stars of Broadway’s “Kinky Boots” and “ Phantom of the Opera” through the new Connected to Broadway series. Ticket-holders now have the opportunity to experience their favorite shows like a true New York insider: attending an exclusive cocktail event, getting preferred seating and a private and in-person cast experience.

Each show, for one night only, will allow NewYork.com ticket-holders into the theater 90 minutes prior to curtain up for a private cocktail reception. Guests will be escorted to their preferred seats and following the show, are invited to an intimate, moderated talk with members of the cast. Tickets are available for the August 1 performance of the Tony Award winner, “Kinky Boots” and the August 22 performance of “Phantom of the Opera,” which is celebrating its 25th year on Broadway. This insider access is exclusive to NewYork.com and there are a limited number of tickets available.
