Latin theatre is on Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway. The Broadway hit of our generation is “Hamilton” written by Puerto Rican New Yorker Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Latin theatre is the root of all European theatre. There are also great theatre traditions in Africa, Asia and the Americas. New York City brings all of this together into something that is pure New York.
NYC has Broadway, Off-Broadway (499-100 seats) and Off-Off Broadway (99 or fewer seats).
