Theater in New York City


New York City is one of the most important centers for theatrical activity in the world. The famous Broadway is a street in New York City and an area with many theaters, in Manhattan, crossed by that street. The name is also used as a metonym for the theatrical activity in New York City. The theater district shifted north to Times Square in the late 19th century. There are also Off-Broadway options, usually produced on low budgets.
