What Is the Difference Between Broadway and Off-Broadway?
There are many factors that fuel what constitutes a Broadway or Off-Broadway theater, but one of the most well-known traits is that Broadway theaters typically contain more than 499 seats. An Off-Broadway theater is then classified as a venue with between 99 and 499 seats. While shows can open directly on Broadway, some, like Hamilton, may begin as Off-Broadway before making the move to a larger theater. Additionally, a show must be playing at a Broadway theater in order to be eligible for the annual Tony Awards.

Where is Broadway in New York?
While answers tend to vary, in general, New York’s Broadway theater district is considered to be located from Sixth to Eighth Avenues between 41st Street and 54th Street. Note that some Broadway theaters may fall outside of this area, but still get the “Broadway” tag.

How Many Broadway Theaters Are There?
There are 40 Broadway theaters active in New York. Depending on various factors like size, demand, and availability, the list of Broadway shows playing at each theater may vary over the course of the year. Among the biggest Broadway theaters in terms of capacity are the Gershwin Theatre (approx. 1,900), Lyric Theatre (approx. 1,900), and The Broadway Theatre (approx. 1,800), while the smallest Broadway theaters include the Helen Hayes Theatre (approx. 600), Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (approx. 650), and American Airlines Theatre (approx. 700).

What Are the Longest Running Broadway Shows?

(revival), Mamma Mia!, Beauty and the Beast, and Rent.
