Manhattan, New York City

(23 979)

Broadway is a theatre complex that refers to the performances presented in the 41 professional theatres with more than 500 seats, located in the Theater District in Midtown Manhattan. Broadway theatre is widely considered to represent the highest level of commercial theatre in the English-speaking world. The first performance in Broadway was on September 12, 1866. The great majority of Broadway shows are musicals. They became enormously influential forms of American popular culture and helped make New York City the cultural capital of the nation. The plays of William Shakespeare were frequently performed on the Broadway stage. The Theater District is a popular tourist attraction in New York City. The total attendance is around 12,5 mln people each year. The theatre normally has eight-performance week. On the schedule, most shows do not play on Monday and the shows and theatres are said to be "dark" on that day. Actors from movies and television are frequently cast for the revivals of Broadway shows or are used to replace actors leaving a cast. There are still, however, performers who are primarily stage actors, spending most of their time "on the boards", and appearing in television and in screen roles only secondarily.
