We love to explore the intersection between popular culture and art, literature, history or music. So we’re offering these specialty programs for the fan as well as the observer, the person who wants to to talk “Hamilton” with other “Hamilton” fans or Disney history with other Disney buffs. Here’s what we’ve got going on. (Email us for more info about any of them.)
Have lunch or dinner with a working theater professional, from actors in current Broadway shows (yes, really) to people who work behind the scenes. Ask questions, hear about life in the theater, and learn about the paths the actors took. This one is great for students, behind-the-scenes buffs, or people who just love theater; we’ve got a terrrific mix of shows and actors. It’s as close as you can get to the stage without actually being on it. Email email@example.com for more info.

Mixed-Up at the Met
Another classic book also gets its due when From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler turns fifty. To celebrate, we’re introducing “Mixed-Up at the Met,” which looks at some of the spaces and places that Claudia and Jamie discover when they run away to the Met. We also take you inside a real-life mystery about an angel statue that’s every bit as amazing as the one in the book. Plus, we’ve got interactive fairy tale and children’s book-themed tours in Central Park. (For more info, see our Walks page.)
