MANHATTAN — Look out Broadway Joe, there's a new gridiron god on the Great White Way.

Newly-minted Jets quarterback Tim Tebow took in a Broadway show during his first weekend in the Big Apple days after a blockbuster deal to bring him to New York was announced, according to a published report.

Tebow watched the 8 p.m. performance of "Wicked" at the Gerswhin Theatre Saturday night and gushed that the musical was "really good" afterward, according to the Daily News.

"I heard good things about it," he said as he ducked into a black luxury van, the News said.

Female fans swooned at the sight of the hunky hurler.

"Now, I'm a Jets fan," cooed Kristi Swartz, 50 of York, Pa., according to the News.

Tebow's trade to Gang Green last week inspired throngs of New Yorkers to mimic the quarterback's signature kneeling move.

The former Denver Bronco was picked up Wednesday afternoon to back-up starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, who struggled last season.

The devout Christian helped lead Denver to several stunning fourth quarter comebacks last season, turning the tide on the team's 1-4 start.

He has drawn both praise and scorn for his outspoken religious positions as well as his play.
