Broadway / Times Square / TKTS Booth

Broadway is one of the main north-south streets on Manhattan, the central borough of New York.

Running most of the length of the island, one famous stretch near Times Square is the home of many theaters, housing an ever-changing array of commercial, large-scale plays, particularly musicals.

The Theater District draws millions of tourists from around the world. Starring in a successful Broadway musical is considered by most such singer/actors as the ultimate success in their chosen profession, and many songs, stories, and musicals have themselves been based around the idea of such success.

While the razzmatazz of Broadway appeals to a mass audience, some theatergoers prefer the more experimental, challenging, and intimate performances possible in smaller theaters elsewhere in Manhattan. Such shows are generally referred to as off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway.
