Loved the event, went with the whole family ... 10 of us total, had to buy (2 sets of tickets from GoldStar). It was really hot in some rooms so the extra long sleeve I had was a bit much. You will take lots of photos so make sure your battery is properly charged. The area was a little tight in some areas so it was hard to pass people at times. Crowds would form in certain areas because everyone wanted pictures with the orchids (especially near the front entrance as well as once you start the exhibit), and who can blame them. Orchids were for sale in the store and ranged from $28 - $68 for potted Orchids, the cashier can provide you with care instructions.
Experience the thrill of opening night at The Orchid Show: On Broadway as Tony Award-winning set designer Scott Pask and image maker Drew Hodges bring the allure, excitement, and glamour of Broadway to The New York Botanical Garden.
This must-see, limited run horticultural engagement takes place in the dramatic galleries of the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Evoking elements from some of Broadway’s most iconic theaters, including the Walter Kerr Theater and the New Amsterdam Theater, The Orchid Show: On Broadway showcases 5,000 dazzling specimens from one of the most distinguished orchid collections in the world.
Over 300 types of orchids are displayed in dramatic curtain, arcade, and chandelier forms. Also enjoy lively Broadway-style cabaret performances each weekend; personal orchid assistance at Shop in the Garden; and home gardening demonstrations every Saturday and Sunday.
Ready for a Broadway-worthy second act? Head over to the Library Gallery for a special exhibition: Hirschfeld’s Broadway Scrapbook. This exclusive show gets you an inside look at rarely seen pieces of Broadway history on loan from the artist’s private collection. Hirschfeld’s iconoclastic line drawings accompanied decades of theater reviews in The New York Times and today adorn the walls of legendary theater haunts Sardi’s, The Blue Bar at The Algonquin, and 1789 in Washington, D.C.
