The Ultimate Guide to Broadway Shows in New York City

You could say that Andrew Allen of The Antipodean Blog is a bit of a Broadway fan - on his last visit to New York he squeezed in eleven shows in just seven days, and yet he didn't blow his budget in the process. These are The Antipodean’s top tips for Broadway on a budget, whether it’s your first show or your hundredth.

New York City is the centre of the theatre universe.

Whether or not you see yourself as a fan of live theatre, it’s a quintessential part of the New York experience. This is the place where pioneering artists first had the idea to merge popular sketches with opera, inventing the modern musical in the process. 80 years later, there is still nothing quite like that rush of exhilaration you get when you’re sitting in a beautiful old dusty theatre and the lights begin to dim. Everyone around you leans slightly forward with anticipation, as the curtain begins to rise.

I strongly urge everyone visiting New York to see at least one show.
