Broadway, New York

Broadway is the oldest north-south main thoroughfare in the city of New York, dating to the first New Amsterdam settlement. The name Broadway is the English literal translation of the Dutch name, Breede weg.

Of course that is all well and good – but what we want to know about is the stretch of Broadway well-known as the absolute pinnacle of the American theater scene.

Technically, a Broadway theater lies between 41st street and 54th street and in between Sixth and Eighth Road Avenues, and has a minimum of 499 seats  although there are some exceptions.

Broadway in New York is always alive with well-liked theatre musicals both new and old. The immense recognition of the Broadway musicals has led to a fantastic demand for tickets.  Some of the more popular shows are Wicked, Once, The Lion King, Jersey Boys and Newsies.

If you are planning to see a musical on Broadway and want great seats or a Saturday evening performance, it is recommended to book as early as you can. That is unless you book one of our New York Musical Breaks in which case all the hard work is done for you!

Musicals either run Monday to Saturday or Tuesday to Sunday, with a matinee on the Sunday. Broadway’s most popular musicals at the moment are Wicked and Jersey Boys.  Wicked is simply the most well-liked Broadway musical right now with sellout performances most nights.  As a popular thing to do for groups this also makes tickets go quickly and the weekend matinee performances are also particularly well-liked.

You will discover a large difference in the price of your Broadway Tickets as well.  Anticipate to spend the most for the top quality balcony seats and also the seats that are in the center area of the Orchestra floor as both of these sections are thought to be the best view.

Enjoy The Show!
