Phenomenal exhibit. It would be even more spectacular when the magnolia trees and cherry trees are in bloom in a few more weeks.

if you feel the need to wake up your senses, have a bite of spring, goto this. It was beautiful, it smelled amazing, and was an awesome way to kickstart spring!

I went at 10:00, when it opened, so there were no crowds. It was beautiful. They really did a great job with the theater motif.

Description

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.
