On Broadway

By Deane Barker

This related to the size and location of the theater.

  • Broadway: a theater of greater than 500 seats in the theater district of New York.

  • Off-Broadway: a theater of between 99-500 seats, not necessarily in New York

  • Off-Off Broadway: pretty much anything else

Why I Looked It Up

I’ve noticed that most of the “Broadway theaters” aren’t actually on Broadway. They’re on numbered streets in the midtown around (42nd to maybe 45th).

This is item #440 in a sequence of 696 items.
