MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What makes a show or play “off-Broadway”?

Broadway has announced that shows will be coming back this September which is very exciting. I always thought the difference between Broadway and Off-Broadway shows was the location, turns out it’s not. It’s all based on the the size of the theater actually.

Anything 500 seats is considered Broadway. 100 to 499 seats is “Off-Broadway” . And then there is a third tier I had no idea about which is 99 seats or less called “Off-Off-Broadway.”

Can’t wait to get back and see some shows this fall in NYC. On, off, or off-off.
