Dance and Theatre in America: Broadway
The term 'Broadway' refers to 'Broadway Theatre' and its location in Manhattan, New York. This district hosts 40 prominent theatres, and is considered the American equivalent of London's 'West End'. Broadway lies between 41st and 53rd Street, and Sixth and Ninth Avenue. Basking the streets in fluorescent colours their neon signs and marquees advertising their shows, the theatre district may be the part of New York - the city which doesn't sleep - which shines brightest.
