Do you know the difference between a Broadway Show and an Off Broadway Show? I’ll give you a hint: it doesn’t have to do with what street it’s on, or the quality of the show necessarily. Give up? Well, let me tell you.
The Difference between a Broadway Show and an Off Broadway show all comes down to seating capacity. Broadway Theaters are theaters that hold 500 or more seats, Off Broadway theaters are theaters that hold between 100-499 seats. That’s it. So when people tell me they don’t want to see that Off Broadway show because the production value is too low, I laugh at the. They don’t know what they’re missing.
Off Broadway shows are some of the best in NYC, after better than their Broadway counterparts. Shows like Avenue Q can go toe-to-toe with any musical comedy in a Broadway theater, and now you can get 2-for-1 tickets to just about all of them. The Off Broadway Week 2-for-1 deal is on sale now for shows from February 17-March 2. Visit the official website to buy your tickets now, you won’t regret it!
