Fox Connecticut Now’s Jim Altman really enjoyed what he calls “part bus tour and part Broadway spectacle.”
“There is entertainment at every turn: some is scripted, and some isn’t,” he says, watching bystanders on the sidewalk join in on the fun. “They’ve given new meaning to theater in the round upon arrival at Columbus Circle.”
“It seems you’ll get plenty of mileage from the New York stories you’re sure to experience.”
Others had a lot to say about us too:
“They see New York like they’ve never seen it before.”
“It’s packed with a lot of entertainment and a lot of excitement. It’s really setting itself apart here in New York.”
