Still Traveling: Haunted Broadway
Monday, May 3
2-3:15pm (PT) on Zoom
On National Paranormal Day, let our JCC colleague James Sokol zoom you to Times Square for a truly spooky adventure. After the thousands of audience members leave the 41 Broadway theaters, a nightly ritual takes place unseen by most: the setting of the ghost-light. Join our guide, a “walking encyclopedia of Broadway,” to explore this, and other superstitions rooted in days gone by, but still held by theatre folk everywhere. Learn stories of spirits that still lurk in the shadows backstage and some truly spooky sightings: acrobats, costume designers, playwrights, actors, and even a priest! See how the haunted of Broadway’s present brings Broadway’s past back to life!
