The RIDE, the acclaimed one-of-a-kind traveling theatrical experience, is returning to New York City. With stadium-style seating, The Ride offers unobstructed views of the city streets through glass windows that make up the entire side and top of the bus.

This specially-engineered vehicle includes a state-of-the-art surround sound system, dozens of video screens, thousands of LEDs, and a computerized control system similar to those used in any modern theatre or major concert venue.

Once aboard the bus, visitors will experience a 75-minute show like no other. Two members of the cast serve as onboard hosts and some of New York City’s most talented performers will appear along the streets, leaving audiences to question who is part of the show and who isn’t.

Preview performances will take place April 21, 22, 23, and 27, with discounted tickets. Regularly scheduled performances will take place Thursday through Sunday, beginning on April 28. Monday and Wednesday shows are set to be added in the summer. Standard ticket prices begin at $79 each.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. For more information, visit
