New Amsterdam Theatre Marquee Ornament (2021 Collection)
Bring home the marquee that housed some of Disney's biggest Broadway hits to your tree this season! Our New Amsterdam Marquee ornament is made of a base of white wood, layered with silver glitter acrylic accents. To encapsulate the multi-dimensional 1930s marquee, a layer of red glittery paper letters brings the NEW AMSTERDAM name to life! This is the perfect gift for any fan of Aladdin, Mary Poppins, or even Lion King (where it made its debut, before its move to the Minskoff)!
When Green Team Owner Tim began Broadway Up Close in 2010 he utilized the beautiful theaters as the framework to tell our stories. We've marveled at the singularity of each of the 41 Broadway marquees ever since, and so in 2020, he began a 10 year mission to recreate every one.
Each year we will be releasing four marquee ornaments - interpreting them both literally and figuratively for a keepsake that will bring these beautiful theaters to life even if you're not standing in Times Square!
For our 2021 collection we are featuring four theaters that played a pivotal role in the reopening of Broadway: the August Wilson (home to the first post-pandemic play: Passover), the New Amsterdam (home to the first post-pandemic concert: Disney at the New Am), the St. James (home to the first post-pandemic musical act: Springsteen on Broadway), and the Winter Garden (home to the 2020 Tony Awards).
