PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: "Welcome to Amsterdam!" Backstage at the Arden Theatre's Tulipomania With Billy Bustamante
Cast member Billy Bustamante takes Playbill.com readers behind the scenes (and on a walking tour of Philly) at the new musical Tulipomania: The Musical, playing its world premiere at the Arden Theatre Company. Read the Playbill.com story.
I'm having an awesome time working on this great show at the Arden Theatre and am excited to give you all a taste of Philly, the Arden, and our wonderful cast!
Taking a stroll through Philly on the way to the theatre. This is Broad St. A.K.A. the "Avenue Of The Arts".
Quick shout out to my alma mater, The University of the Arts. Half of the Tulipomania company are U. Arts grads!
Philly is filled with art on every corner. Here is my favorite mural. It's in a parking lot!
I finally reach the Arden Theatre which is in the heart of Old City. It's a neighborhood filled with history, great bars, restaurants and art galleries. It's always an entertaining stroll down these streets.
You'll always find a tour guide in period dress showing tourists the historic sites in the area.
Like Betsy Ross's house! Located steps from the Arden!
People here love their pets...And who wouldn't love that green cutie pie?!
Quick stop by my favorite coffee shop to fuel up before the show...
Outside the theatre I run into Alan, one of the Arden's Professional Apprentices advertising the Arden's two shows: Robin Hood and TULIPOMANIA!
