Ah, Broad­way. The undis­puted home of mag­i­cal mu­si­cal mar­vel­lous­ness. Get­ting its start in New York in 1750, Broad­way theatre en­tered a golden age be­tween 1950 and 1970 thanks to the run­away hit Ok­la­homa! which played for 2,212 per­for­mances.

To­day, 41 the­atres across Mid­town Man­hat­tan are home to the best shows mu­si­cal theatre has ever seen. Re­mark­ably, shows from the 1950s still form the core of the mu­si­cal theatre reper­tory.

Next time you visit New York, whether you favour a clas­sic like Phantom Of The Opera, Cabaret, Cats or Chicago or your tastes are more suited to a mod­ern pro­duc­tion like Hamil­ton, The Book Of Mor­mon, The Lion King or Wicked, just go.
