The word Broadway is synonymous with the term American musical theatre. Broadway musicals, which are a favorite group experience, are made affordable through the sale of group discount tickets. Broadway was built on the musical and the man who built Broadway, and in a way encouraged the group experience, was George M. Cohan. Cohan, who gave us such songs as “Over There,” “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and “Grand Old Flag,” was about as American as someone could be and it was his theatrical musicals that revolutionized the art form, making it distinctly American and very popular.
It was over 100 years ago that Cohan made his mark on The Great White Way. He was followed by the likes of Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Dorothy Field, and many, many more fine composers, lyricists and book writers. Although musicals have changed a lot over the past 100 years, one thing is still certain, they are amazing group experiences and thoroughly entertaining. Here are some well-known, long-run shows that All Tickets Inc. offers big group discounts on and that groups love.
