BWW TV: Broadway Salutes the Troops at Fleet Week- Part 1; GHOST, SISTER ACT, and More!
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, along with the City of New York and the United States Navy, this week celebrated the 25th annual Fleet Week, to be held through May 28, 2012. Fleet Week is America's premier tribute and "thank you" to the men and women who serve in the armed forces, and BroadwayWorld was there this afternoon for a special tribute to the troops from Broadway.

Soon to be the home of the Space Shuttle Enterprise, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum complex includes the 900-foot-long aircraft carrier 'Intrepid' with seven full decks and four theme halls; the guided missile submarine Growler; and an extensive collection of 27 aircraft including the A-12 Blackbird, the fastest plane in the world, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft in the world. Guests can experience areas of the ship including the Flight Deck, Hangar Deck, fo'c'sle (commonly known as the anchor chain room), new multimedia presentations and exhibit collections, interactive educational stations and a state-of-the-art public pier.
Guests to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum also can experience the 12,240 square-foot interactive Exploreum – which contains a variety of hands-on exhibits – that teaches guests about the different properties of the sea, air, space and living at sea as each relates to the ship Intrepid. In the Exploreum, guests can experience a flight simulator, transmit messages using Morse code, sit on the bunk of a crewmember, learn how the Intrepid turned salt water into fresh water and perform various tasks while wearing space gloves.
