Packing for a Broadway show?
Having just returned from a Broadway-packed weekend in New York, packing for a couple evenings 'out of the town,' has been forefront in my mind for a few weeks! If you've been following the blog for a while, you'll know that packing for trips is one of the main ways I get excited for vacation (not to mention, reading blogs, watching themed movies, etc.).
Though we ended up not having the best weather for our recent adventure, I was thrilled with the outfits I ultimately selected for our Broadway tips.
Is there a dress code for Broadway?
No, within reason, you can wear whatever you like to a Broadway show. Depending on the show, what "most" people will be wearing will vary. At newer, more popular shows, people will be slightly more dressed up (dresses/suits without ties). If you're seeing Cats in the middle of the afternoon, jeans will abound.
Should I bring a purse to a Broadway show?
You are welcome to bring a (small) purse to a Broadway show. You may have to go through a security check and open it up, but other than that, bringing a purse shouldn't be a problem. It needs to be small enough to fit comfortably under your seat, so I wouldn't bring anything larger than a wallet on a chain/crossbody.
