Theater District is a Manhattan Neighborhood with 41 broadway theaters and many other theaters, movie theaters, restaurants, hotels, and other entertaining places. Broadway is one of the most famous streets in New York with big, splashy musicals. The Theater District runs approximately from West 41st to West 54th Streets (south to north), and Sixth to Eighth Avenues (east to west).
If planning to see the Broadway Shows, go in the evenings. There are not any good shows on Mondays.
Broadway shows take place Tuesday through Sunday, 8 times a week, and 1 additional matinee performance on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Broadway is “dark” on Mondays.
Want to meet actors/show performers? Wait outside the stage door; it's often possible to get autographs and photos while they're leaving after a live performance.
