Off Broadway Week begins February 17 in NYC

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.

Far too often, Off Broadway shows are lost in the shuffle. People come far and wide to New York City to see the bursting lights of Broadway, but strangely look down upon those shows with the Off-Broadway label. Those poor souls, they don’t know what they’re missing.

You can bring the whole family to see The Berenstain Bears in Family Matters, the Musical, or maybe take in the awesome visual display that is Blue Man Group. Avenue Q might be the funniest show in all of New York City, and that includes those Broadway hits. Just because a show is considered Off-Broadway, it doesn’t mean that it is inferior in quality.

What’s the best part about Off Broadway shows in NYC, you ask? It’s that beginning next week (1/28), you can see 37 different Off Broadway for half price as part of Off Broadway Week! For more information on this incredible buy-one, get-one deal, check out NYC & Company’s official Off Broadway Week website where you can purchase all of your tickets.

Off Broadway Week begins on January 28 and runs through February 10. Tickets are on sale for show now, so get them before it’s too late!
