Q: What is included in the price of the trip?
A: The price per person of $3,795 covers: roundtrip airfare to and from Phoenix and Newark; a Welcome and Closing dinner at a four-star restaurant; six nights in a luxury hotel near Times Square and breakfast each morning; tickets to four Broadway shows; three New York excursions; four Artistic Breakfast Talks with Producing Artistic Director Michael Barnard and his guests; several charter bus rides; a built-in $500 donation to Phoenix Theatre; plus taxes, fees, and administrative charges.
Q: What are the dates of the two trips in 2018?
A: Week 1 is May 30– June 5 and Week 2 is June 13 – June 19.
Q: Do you still have room for the first week of the trip?
A: Sadly, no! Our Week 1 (May 30– June 5) trip has sold out! Only Week 2 has remaining seats available.
Q: What shows are we seeing?
A: We love to see the most buzz-worthy, new shows on Broadway! This year we will see: the highly anticipated The Band’s Visit; revamped revival Carousel; your choice between Anastasia or Come From Away; and a fourth show (traditionally a play) TBD!
Q: What hotel are we staying at?
A: We are staying at the InterContinental New York Times Square Hotel on 44th Street and 8th Avenue. As part of our package, breakfast is provided each morning. We will hold our morning Artistic Breakfast Talks in a private room in the hotel as well.
Q: What airline are we flying with?
A: We will fly with American Airlines this year (after several years of strife with United Airlines).
Q: Can I upgrade my flight or use points to pay for the cost?
A: Yes! But you will then need to book the flight on your own. That said, we share the flight itinerary in early spring so you can book a seat to fly on the same plane as the rest of the group.
Q: Can I stay longer in New York and fly back on my own?
A: Of course! You will travel with Broadway Bound as LAND ONLY and make your own travel and hotel arrangements outside of the trip. The cost of the flight will be subtracted from your total due payment.
TIP: Should you arrive in NYC from an alternative destination than Phoenix, we recommend that you schedule your flight to arrive at a similar time to the Broadway Bound itinerary – then you can ride on the charter bus with us!
Q: I am a solo traveler – what are my options?
A: All are welcome on this trip! The cost of the trip is based on double occupancy at the hotel, so there will be an additional fee to have your own room.
Q: What is the age requirement for this trip?
A: The average traveler age is 68 years old, however, the range is 18 to 94 years old!
Q: I want to go! What should I do next?
A: Wonderful! Please call Olivia Homewood at 602.889.5290, who will request a $1,000 per person refundable deposit paid by credit card or check made out to “Phoenix Theatre.”
Q: For personal reasons, I may not be able to attend the trip unexpectedly – what are my options?
A: A $1,000 refundable deposit per person is due to reserve your seat on the trip. If you find you can no longer attend Broadway Bound after paying this fee, it is still refundable until FINAL payments are due in February 2018. If you realize you cannot attend Broadway Bound sometime between March and the time of our trip, we will only be able to partially refund your trip, and we will not be able to refund your donation to the Theatre.
Q: I love Phoenix Theatre so much and want to support its shows and programs beyond Broadway Bound – what are my options?
A: I’m so glad you asked! For starters, a $500 donation to the Theatre is built into the price of the trip. For additional opportunities to attend, support, and engage with Phoenix Theatre, please visit https://www.phoenixtheatre.com/support.
