Join Broadway Up Close Owner Tim Dolan as he explores all of the Broadway theaters at the northern end of the Broadway theatre district from 47th Street and beyond. As guests virtually weave among the original Broadway facades, they will hear how Broadway transformed with the first million dollar show and the introduction of rock musicals. They'll also learn how a dog named Sandy would change one Tony Award winner's life - and Broadway's canine future - while little orphan Annie belted "Tomorrow" in front of thousands. And with some of Broadway's longest running shows, from Hair! to Wicked, housed within these blocks, Broadway Up Close Owner Tim Dolan will bring to light the backstage quirks and secrets that are rarely heard.

Tim moved to the Big Apple shortly after graduating high school to pursue a career in the arts. On the small screen, Tim was featured on Season Two of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Onstage, Tim was the Dance Captain in the Off-Broadway revival of Once Upon A Mattress starring Jackie Hoffman and John "Lypsinka" Epperson. He also performed as Abraham in the long-running hit musical Altar Boyz. His other acting credits include the National Tours of Altar Boyz and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes as well as numerous regional credits. He is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association. As an arts educator Tim was on faculty at Rosie's Theatre Kids, Rosie O'Donnell's arts organization for many years. Combining his storytelling skills as an actor, and his love for Broadway history, Tim created Broadway Up Close Walking Tours in 2010. Over the past decade the company has established six different tour experiences including an interior tour of Broadway’s oldest theater, the Hudson. In 2019 he opened a freestanding gift shop in the middle of Times Square that offers custom, unique Broadway merchandise. And putting his love of Broadway marquees at the forefront, Tim created the BROADWAY sign that is quickly becoming a Times Square staple.
