first_imgLondon has the famed West End and New York City has bedazzling, buoyant Broadway … if you’ve visited either or both cities and jagged a seat at an award-winning live show, you will appreciate the incredible contribution that a vibrant and world-renowned theatre district makes to a city.First time visitors to NYC have plenty of bucket-list attractions on their must-see lists, and Broadway is among them; frequent visitors will insist that tickets to a Broadway show are a mandatory holiday inclusion, booked well in advance of departure from OZ!The great news for Aussie travellers, and agents, is that Broadway Inbound is committed to facilitating those experiences in the best possible way – Rebecca George, Broadway Inbound Trade Sales Manager, Australia and New Zealand and Courtney Rule, Broadway Inbound PR Director, travelled to New York last week for training, meetings and unique Broadway experiences. In recognising the increase in global demand for its unique product, Broadway Inbound organised the trip in order to help the Aussie sales and PR teams further educate and service the Australian market. “It’s always wonderful for Broadway shows to make their way to Australia, but there really is nothing like seeing it first on Broadway in New York City,” said George.While in New York, the team was delighted to meet Randy Adams, the Tony-award winning Producer and founding partner of Junkyard Dog Productions (JYD). JYD is currently represented on Broadway with Come From Away, which is set to open in Melbourne in July 2019.Come From Away takes audiences to the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 passengers who were stranded during 9/11, and the small town in Newfoundland, Canada that welcomed them. While the show begins on 9/11, it focuses on the story of the days that follow, showing how frustration and uneasiness can turn into trust, gratitude and enduring connections.“No matter whether they see Come From Away in New York or in Australia, Australian audiences will be taken to a place they don’t want to leave and will want to see the show again and again,” George added.For more information on performances and bookings, visit Broadway Inbound. Broadway Inbound recommends booking in advance through a travel provider to secure the best seats to preferred shows at a great price.IMAGE: L-R: Randy Adams, Producer of Come From Away; Bonnie Earle Harris, one of the Newfoundland residents that opened her doors to the stranded passengers and whose story is depicted in Come From Away; Rebecca George, Broadway Inbound Trade Sales Manager; Courtney Rule, Broadway Inbound PR Director; Diane Davis, another Newfoundland resident whose story is depicted in Come From Away.
