Do You Miss Broadway Theatergoing?
Enjoy Hearing Spooky Stories?

Join Us for a Virtual “Ghostlight” Tour of Haunted Broadway Theaters with Tim Dolan, Actor and Founder of Broadway Up Close Tours

We will participate in an interactive experience led by Tim Dolan, the founder of Broadway Up Close  and a working actor.

Tim will utilize rare photos and videos, newspaper clippings, and details of his personal exploration of several of the most historic Broadway theaters to tell us their fascinating and spooky stories.

Every night when audience members leave Broadway theaters, a nightly ritual takes place unseen by most: the setting of the Ghostlight. Tim will explore the Ghostlight  history, and other superstitions rooted in days gone by, but still held by theatre folk everywhere. 

He will share stories of spirits that still lurk in the shadows backstage, including some truly spooky sightings of acrobats, costume designers, playwrights, actors, and even a priest! 


Timothy J. Dolan is the founder of Broadway Up Close, a Broadway-focused tour company featured in the NY Times and many TV news segments, and praised as the best Broadway tour guide by Trip Advisor, Yelp and Google.
Tim moved to the Big Apple from Michigan to pursue a career in the arts and attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. He was featured on Season Two of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Onstage, Tim was the Dance Captain in the Off-Broadway revival of Once Upon A Mattress starring Jackie Hoffman and John "Lypsinka" Epperson. He performed as Abraham in the long-running hit musical Altar Boyz. Other acting credits include the National Tours of Altar Boyz and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes as well as numerous regional credits. Tim is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association. As an arts educator Tim was on faculty at Rosie's Theatre Kids, Rosie O'Donnell's arts organization, and Dream Makers Performing Arts.

Combining his love of theatre with his experiences as a New York City licensed tour guide, Tim is excited to share and spread the knowledge of Broadway's history and stories with you.
