Broadway Plays from Shakespeare to Modern Classics - Plays on Broadway
Broadway plays range from Shakespearean classics to newly penned gems. From the serious and dramatic to the lighthearted and comedic, Broadway plays draw stars and fans alike to the Great White Way. Some plays are gritty explorations into realism, focusing a socio-economic and socio-political mirror to historical or current events. Others are ironic, comedic, sardonic, or even satirical, allowing the audience an evening of laughter. While not as financially successful as musicals, plays remain an integral part of the business and art of Broadway.

Broadway Musicals Feature Triple-Threat Actors, Singers, & Dancers
The Broadway musical is a unique creature of art, song, and dance and is exclusively American. The financial backbone of the theatre industry in New York, the Broadway musical became the Hollywood cash-cow from the 1930's through the 1960's in the form of the movie musical. Triple-threat actor/singer/dancers bring the musical story to life with their specialized training and athletic artistry. Musicals usually require more money to produce due to the expense of a large cast, costumes, sets, and pit musicians. The Broadway musical is the cornerstone and financial security of the New York theatre industry.
