Broadway has been the home of New York theater for almost 150 years. Known as the Great White Way because the lights of its theaters burned so brightly in the early days of electricity. It’s one of New York’s most famous thoroughfares.

Seeing a blockbuster Broadway show is an essential New York experience. Along with the latest new hit shows, there are some famously long-running shows still showing on Broadway, including Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre, Wicked at the George Gershwin, The Lion King at the Minskoff, and Mamma Mia! at the Winter Garden Theatre.

Practical Info

Broadway (the street) runs diagonally north to south across the length of Manhattan. New York’s Theater District runs along Broadway from 42nd to 53rd streets. The handiest subways for the major theaters on Broadway are at Times Square, 49th Street and Seventh Avenue.
