Additionally, Broadway productions that take you right from the stage to the screen include Camelot, Oklahoma!, West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, The Sound of Music, and Hello Dolly!

If you’re looking for something a little more light-hearted, then you’re in luck. Enjoy stand up performances by comedy’s greatest performers such as Joan Rivers, Rodney Dangerfield, Johnny Carson, Flip Wilson, Alan King, Stiller & Meara, and Jack Carter. For those looking for more unconventional styles of entertainment, viewers can enjoy a variety of entertainment such as The Muppets, Topo Gigio, close-up magic sketches, flying acrobats, plate spinners and so much more.
