Tips for spending Christmas on Broadway 

  • Book your tickets for the Christmas shows on Broadway in advance, ticket sales start months in advance. Headout is a reliable source for finding discounted Broadway tickets with great seating options. 
  • Christmas on Broadway is the busiest time of the year in New York. Make sure you reach at least an hour in advance for your show as you might get stuck in the legendary New York traffic. 
  • Prefer to use public transport like subway, instead of taxis as there is a higher chance of getting caught in the traffic. 
  • Make sure you book reservations for your table in the restaurants in MidTown and Hell’s Kitchen at least 2-3 weeks in advance as it is a busy time of the year and getting a table in the moment is tough, if not impossible! 
  • Dress in layers and leave some time to check in coats and luggage at the theatre. You might be rushed for time because everyone at the theatre will do the same.
