Vivian Nixon & Chad Kimball in MEMPHIS. Winner of Tony Award for Best Musical!

It was Ethel Merman who once said  "Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to Broadway."

Ethel Merman may have passed away but Broadway is still very much alive!

NYC is not as far and expensive as you may think. 

With many busses leaving Baltimore and arriving in NYC about 4 hours later and with fares averaging about $40 round-trip, you too can see one of the 2010 Tony Award-Winning shows!
