When to Get There

Though you can pass by the Gershwin anytime, the best way to experience the theater is at a show. To attend a performance, make sure to arrive at least 20 minutes before the show starts. Since most shows are opening—and getting reviewed—between September and December, plan to book tickets outside of these peak months. July is a great month to see a Broadway show, since the Tony Awards are over by mid-June.
