Experience It! ___________________________________ Broadway
Broadway, New York City’s theatre district, runs from 41st Street to 53rd Street between Sixth and Ninth Avenues. The first theatre was built in 1798 and over the years, the district has grown to 40 theaters that are now considered “on Broadway.” At the turn-of-the-century, the street was nicknamed the “great white way” due to the bright white lights that illuminated the streets and advertised the multitude of shows. During this period, the shows were mostly comedies and operettas, and some vaudeville. The Broadway shows that we know today were developed in the 1940s. Rodgers and Hammerstein were the pioneers who first combined song, dance, comedy and drama to create the modern musical. The lights are still shining bright, theatre attendance is thriving, and to be “on Broadway” is now the most highly respected achievement for theatre professionals.
