NYC Theatre is on Broadway (41 theaters), Off-Broadway (under 500 seats) and Off-Off Broadway (under 100 seats). Like New York City, American theatre is a mix of many cultures. Most Broadway shows are dark on Mondays.
Latin theatre is mostly Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway. We are present on Broadway mostly as creatives and performers. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” is the Broadway hit of our generation. 🇵🇷
Repertorio Español is NYC’s most active Latin theatre. 🇨🇺
Tickets go on sale months in advance. They are cheapest at theatre box offices. Beware of scalpers. Telecharge.com is one of Broadway’s main ticket providers and sells tickets at a low markup.

The NYC Theatre Scene
The Broadway hit of our generation is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. 🇵🇷
There is more Latin theatre Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway.
The Public Theater, producer of Shakespeare in the Park, consistently produces great Off-Broadway theater and is an active supporter of Latin and Black communities. “Hair,” “Hamilton,” “Latin History for Morons” all jumped from The Public to Broadway and television.
Repertorio Español has been NYC’s Spanish-language repertory theatre for over 50 years. 🇨🇺
It’s an interesting time because there isn’t that much Latin Broadway, yet the pinnacle of Broadway theatre is Latin. Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Freestyle Love Supreme) is the Broadway hit of our generation. 🇵🇷
A night of Broadway can be a nice dinner, and a show, followed by a cocktail.
Restaurant Row is West 46th St between Eighth and Ninth Ave in Hell’s Kitchen. It’s an Open Street pedestrian street lined with restaurants.
54 Below is a Broadway cabaret in the notorious basement of Studio 54. If you can’t make a Broadway show, you can still feel the Broadway at 54 Below. 54below.com
There is more Latin Off-Broadway than Latin Broadway. Technically Off-Broadway is theaters from 100-500 seats with Off-Broadway contracts. For our purposes, Off-Broadway is everything not on Broadway.
