Here are 3 interesting facts you didn't know on top venues.
1. THE BROADWAY THEATRE
This venue has recently been the home for the award winning show 'The Color Purple'. However, did you know it was here that the outstanding cartoon “Steamboat Willie” debuted and also where the world was introduced to Mickey Mouse!
2. THE IMPERIAL THEATRE
Billy Elliot and Les Misérables have been the longest running hit shows at this theatre. It is also known from 1938 to 1968 only two shows ran fewer than 300 performances. WOW !
3. THE AMBASSADOR THEATRE
This theatre looks pretty straight to you and me from the outside. The fun fact is the Theatre is actually situated diagonally on its property to maximise on seating for guests.
