After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll meet our guide and coach for today's sightseeing in Midtown Manhattan, including Times Square, the Theater District, Fifth Avenue, the East Side and some shopping! In a session at a rehearsal studio in the Theater District, we will have the opportunity to sit and talk to a performer from one of Broadway’s current shows. This session will include personal success stories, career moments and insight into his or her life as a performer. Our time here will also include a private performance from the artist. Next, take New York’s restless energy and inventiveness, add its distinctive brand of brassy elegance, its delight in impressing visitors, and flair for showmanship, and you have Grand Central Terminal! Still the busiest rail station in the US, our guide will share fascinating stories about the station before we take time to explore the Grand Central Market, well-known for its unique gifts. From here, we will take a stroll past the elaborately-designed store windows of Fifth Avenue before heading to Central Park to explore the Columbus Circle Holiday Market, where local foods, artisans and handcrafted gifts abound. After some free time to refresh or shop some more, we will enjoy dinner at a nearby restaurant followed by orchestra seating at a hit Broadway show!
