To see the Shubert’s exterior and explore Broadway, consider a walking tour of the Theater District, most of which take you to the best-known playhouses while sharing tales of their history. Some itineraries focus on the city’s 1920s Prohibition era, when Broadway was a hot spot for speakeasies and bootleggers.

Our tour guide, Patrick, was a wealth of knowledge, anecdotes, historical background, all interspersed with his obvious love of theater. We learned so much in such a short period of time...and enjoyed every minute.

Things to See at or Near the Shubert Theatre

Take some time to admire the Shubert’s exterior—its ornamental sgraffito plasterwork is a key feature. Then, look for the Shubert’s stage door in Shubert Alley, alongside the playhouse. In the 1920s and ’30s, actors used the pedestrian lane as a place to relax during intervals and after performances. There, they’d smoke and mingle with chorus girls, reporters, and bootleggers who’d take their orders for Prohibition-breaking alcohol.
