My husband and I did the Act II tour on Sunday with Tim and had a fantastic time! Act I was great but Act II was even better! Tim was so entertaining and very knowledgeable on "everything Broadway." We can't wait to book Act III

Tim's knowledge of these NYC theatres is amazing. We learned about their history, shows that played, and all kinds of quirky facts... his backstage stories are the best!!! Tim is a showman and we are his captive audience... can't wait to experience Act 3!
