Off-Broadway Theatre is Alive and Well

Now I know that when most people think of theatre in New York City they first word that comes to mind is Broadway. Makes sense to me. After all Broadway has been around since the 19th Century. Now I know you didn't come here for a history lesson. The reason for today's blog is not to tell you about the hottest shows on Broadway or how you can see most of them for below face value. No today's blog is about another form of theatre in New York City. Perhaps you've heard of a little thing called Off-Broadway? Although quite frankly there is nothing little about it anymore. As we speak there are over one hundred and fifty shows playing. That's over five times more than Broadway. See I told you it wasn't little didn't I? Now while most of those are limited runs there are also long running shows like Blue Man Group, Stomp, Perfect Crime, Fuerza Bruta, and recent Broadway to Off-Broadway transfers like Avenue Q, Million Dollar Quartet, and my favorite show Rent. That's the great thing about live theatre in New York. So many choices. Until next time theatre fans.
