The term “Broadway,” refers to a group of 41 theatres located in theatre district of Manhattan, New York. Like the West End in London, shows that make it to Broadway are seen as the top of the pile. Most of the theatre productions on Broadway are musicals, and some are so popular that they run for decades e.g. 'Phantom of the Opera' (since 1988). This AoS topic covers 50 years of Broadway shows from the 1950s-1990s.
