A Night on the Town Theater Trips

A Night on the Town Theater Trips Deluxe New York & London Theater Trips for small groups, fully escorted and guided by George Harter Theater writer and radio host George Harter, has 19 years experience planning and operating upscale theater trips to New York and London.
(9)

These trips began when George invited the listeners of his vintage Broadway radio program “A Night on the Town”, to join him in New York City for theater, fine dining and fascinating side tours. These special trips became an important source of revenue for Musical Theater Heritage (MTH), the non-profit organization George founded in 1996 to produce the “A Night on the Town” radio series. Today, in addition to operating the radio series and the fundraising theater trips, Musical Theater Heritage, Inc also has a 243 seat theater in Kansas City producing live musical theater throughout the year. MTH is a 501c3 organization. Its mission statement is: for the appreciation and awareness of the history of the American Musical. Now, MTH is able to share the success and the excitement of A Night on The Town Theater Trips with other organizations. Your group can raise several thousand dollars by participating in one of our guided trips. Additionally, our trips develop relationships of increased giving. We bring people together for new cultural experiences, creating new connections to your organization and your arts mission. MTH will plan and operate the trip for you. Your organization will select someone to act as the host for the trip, then offer it to your audience, patrons or other followers. Trips typically run from Wednesday to Sunday. The itinerary usually features four theater venues, two dinner parties, two side tours, airport/hotel transfers and other value added features. We invite you to create an exciting travel opportunity for your patrons and supporters.

Most trips feature four theater venues, two dinner parties, two side tours, airport/hotel transfers and other value added features.

Dear Diary -

One weekday afternoon in 2013 I experienced –first hand- the melting pot that is New York.

I was on the ‘A’ going uptown when an Asian lady sitting directly across from me slumped over and began to slide to the floor. I got over to her in time to break her fall.

The car was about half-full. “Is there a physician in this car” I yelled?
“I’m a physician” I heard right away, and a dark-haired woman with a dot (a Bindi) on her forehead came right over.

As the train came to a stop at 72nd Street, she ordered two Latino boys to hold the doors open, and asked me and a black man to help carry her onto the platform.

The man and I got back on the train; the boys let the doors go and as the train started to move again, the lady began to come-to on the platform in the arms of the physician.

The four of us said very little as we went back to our seats.
But for those two minutes we were a community and the world worked the way it is supposed to.

DEAR DIARY:

I must admit, at first I was intimidated by New York and New Yorkers when I started doing business in Manhattan in 1996.

Eventually though, I got the hang of inching my way through the line at the neighborhood Deli near the hotel and having my breakfast bagel order ready to shout-out when the cook –spatula in hand- pointed to me.

In front of me one morning, was an attractive well-dressed young woman, who appeared the epitome of the professional New York businesswoman.

“No, I didn’t order cream cheese on it” she suddenly yelled.

The Deli man said nothing. He just calmly scrapped the cream cheese off her bagel using the side of the metal tray, as the woman and I calmly watched.

I looked at her and said “I’m sorry you had to see that”.
She laughed, and for the first time I felt I belonged in New York.

Just completed our 20th Annual A Night on the Town Theater trip. Thank you to all who joined us for HAMILTON, FUN HOME, SOMETHING ROTTEN & AN AMERICAN IN PARIS.

I do see why Hamilton has developed the gravitas that it has. It will develop an interest for live theater among whole new generation of people.

The Hamilton Effect: How Shows Graduate from Smash Hit to Revolutionary Phenomenon

Many Broadway shows have recouped their monetary investments and been billed as a hit… But, what makes productions like Hamilton graduate to the standard of "cultural phenomenon"? We take a look at a few productions that made history beyond the box office.
