New York Theaters

Nobody does theater better than New York. No other city in the world has a theater scene with so much breadth and depth and with so many wide-open alternatives from Broadway with crowd-pleasing warhorses like The Lion King and phenomenal newer successes like The Producers to Off and Off-Off Broadway with small, "alternative" theaters.
