“Broadway” actually refers to the street in NYC, which has gained worldwide acclaim in theatrical entertainment.

Today, the term “Broadway” can refer to any theater that has a seating capacity of at least 500 people and stages live plays, comedies or musicals.

History Of Broadway

Broadway shows are so popular in the city, that getting New York City theatre tickets can be extremely difficult, almost impossible, at times! But this popularity is not something that just happened overnight! This high quality of professional theater work goes as far back in history as 1810! In those days, even the actors had to be imported from countries in Europe! The actor Junius Brutus Booth, with his sons, Edwin Booth and Junius Brutus Booth, Jr., made one of the earliest great acting families of America.

When Did The “Musicals” Happen On Broadway?

The first work in theater productions that can be considered as conforming to the concept of a modern musical, using original music compositions and dances, to narrate the story, was “The Black Crook.” A staggering 5.5-hour production, this show went live for the first time in NYC on September 12, 1866, and ran for an awesome 474 performances – a record at that time! The year also marked the birth of the first Broadway "musical comedy”, in the form of “The Black Domino/Between You, Me and the Post.” And even today, New York City theatre tickets to Broadway musicals are instant sell-outs!
