Openings and More: NYC Tourism Latest

As the Broadway and Off-Broadway calendars fill in, and more festivals announce dates, that shift is already well underway. Coming attractions include:

Nationally, airlines report domestic leisure travel is back to pre-pandemic levels. Yes, we are still waiting for international and business travel, but there are signs those returns are coming up as well.

THIS WEEK'S DATA FROM EVERYTHING TO DO NYC FACEBOOK GROUP

Looking for on-the-round reporting about the city? Everything To Do NYC Facebook Group brings together more than 42,000 city superfans sharing what they're experiencing around town. This week we polled the group about Broadway plans—it was interesting to see how broad the range of responses was. For locals at least, it's looking like the return to live theatre will reward a cross-section of productions, not just the usual warhorses (Hamilton came in tied for eighth place, just ahead of To Kill a Mockingbird and Lion King). ETD provides a great forum to get a read on what tourists and locals are thinking, and to market your venue.
