It's easy to get blinded by the lights of Broadway! And while there are many fantastic productions on the Great White Way, New York City is home to a slew of smaller theaters where you can catch incredible shows from emerging to established artists. Often, these high-quality productions are new works. Many may be edgier than what you'll find on Broadway, but they're just as entertaining! The choices run the gamut from hilarious improv to groundbreaking musicals to immersive spectacles.
See it first: 'Hamilton' actually started Off-Broadway as did classics like 'Rent' and 'A Chorus Line,' so you may be catching the next big thing.
Bonus: Tickets to these shows tend to be significantly cheaper than Broadway!
