Applause and the Off-Broadway Theatre Scene

Having been in the ticket industry for over a decade now I can honestly say that most of our customers call because they are looking for tickets to the hottest Broadway shows. Makes sense to me. I mean after all when most people think of theatre in New York the first thing that pops into their head is Broadway. Now don't get me wrong. There is nothing better than seeing a Broadway show. I even like the bad ones. I'm weird that way.

Now while it's true that a big Broadway show brings in more revenue than a show in a smaller theatre it doesn't mean it's not as good. In fact in some cases it's even better. Believe it or not but Off-Broadway has been around since the 1950's. That's almost as long as The Phantom of the Opera has been playing. Just kidding. Now for years Off-Broadway was known as Broadway's little brother.

Although when you think about it it's not so little anymore. Now besides long running hits such as Blue Man Group and Stomp there is also Rent and Avenue Q both of which won the Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year. Who says Broadway has to have all the best shows? In fact some of the most innovative and original shows can be found below 42nd Street.

Believe it or not but there are thirty-five shows playing Off-Broadway at this very moment. With that many choices how ever will you decide? That's easy. All you have to do is call one of the friendly ticket experts at Applause and let us help you with all your ticket needs. Support Off-Broadway. Who knows? You might just enjoy yourself. Until next time theatre fans.
