Broadway (III)

Location:   Manhattan and points north
Year:   1642

 

"The Great White Way" got its moniker in the  Roaring Twenties, when a star-struck theater critic was inspired by the sight of all the brilliantly lit marquees along the street.  As of 2014, there are 40 "Broadway" theaters, most clustered within a 12-block area of Midtown Manhattan. 

Not all "Broadway" theaters  operate on Broadway; most are on the surrounding side streets. 


Some "off-Broadway" and "off-off Broadway theaters operate in the area as well. 



"Off-off Broadway" theaters often cater to avant-garde and independent productions.
