Off-Broadway

About Off-Broadway Tickets

Off-Broadway plays occur in New York City. The major difference between a “Broadway” and “Off-Broadway” play is the seating capacity of the theater. Off-Broadway plays tend to be hosted in smaller venues, seating anywhere between 100 and 499 audience members. "Off-Broadway" originally referred to the location of a venue on a street that intersected Broadway. These venuses were "off" Broadway, the street. The term was later redefined by the League of Off-Broadway Theatres and Producers to the definition we know today.

Like Broadway shows, these performances can span various genres, including plays, one-person shows, or musicals. Many Off-Broadway plays have won awards from the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, the Outer Circle Critics Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Obie Award, the Lucille Lortel Award, and the Drama League Award. Some of the biggest Off-Broadway plays have gone on to become memorable Broadway hits, including Hair, Little Shop of Horrors, Rent, Avenue Q, and Rock of Ages.
