BROADWAY SHOWS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...


Throughout the United States and the world beyond, people have heard about Broadway shows. Where does the term come from, and what does it mean? Read below to find out...

“Broadway” usually refers to a large main or open road. The New York City borough of Manhattan has one of the most infamous Broadway streets in the world. The term Broadway theater comes from this area in Manhattan where the arts—especially theater arts—congregate in NYC. However, qualifying as a Broadway theater does not mean that a theater is actually on Broadway street. Rather, Broadway theater refers to shows that are located in Manhattan and seat 500 or more people. These Broadway locations exclude halls that focus on concerts, such as Carnegie Hall. It is estimated that there are 40 legitimate Broadway theaters today, and most are located between West 40th and West 53rd streets in Midtown Manhattan. Everyone who is a Broadway regular has their favorite theater and favorite productions. Some of the most loved locations include Music Box Theatre, Lyric Theatre, Richard Rodgers Theatre, Vivian Beaumont Theatre, Studio 54, New Amsterdam Theatre, and Imperial Theatre. Each has their own atmosphere, punctuated with unique architecture, stage features, and character.

Broadway covers a relatively small, localized area. This is where tons of talent in the industry resides, packed away in pricey high-rise apartments, flocking to theaters to produce an average of 8 shows each week. It might sound strange that such a small piece of property in one city holds so much notoriety and critical acclaim. However, decades upon decades of talent and success back Broadway’s reputation. In fact, since 1978, the Broadway League, alongside the American Theater League, have held the annual Tony Awards to recognize “distinguished achievement on Broadway,” a testament to the significance of Broadway in the theater arts.

If you are planning a trip to New York City or live near the Big Apple, you have to see a show on Broadway. Experience the best-of-the-best in the arts, with star performers on stage, top-of-the-line products technique, and critically acclaimed producers, writers, technicians, and crews. For people who love the arts, snagging tickets to a wonderful Broadway production is reason enough to plan a trip. In Midtown Manhattan, there are endless things to see and do, such as the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art, the High Line, Madison Square Garden, and Radio City Music Hall.
