    BroadwayNew York Theater falls into general categories: Broadway; off Broadway, which includes the regional theaters in New York; off off Broadway; local groups; dinner theater and movies. While there is some crossover between the groups and the lines can be blurry, these terms will let you know what kind of production you'll see when you're buying tickets.

    The shows on Broadway are the big budget extravaganzas that are the top of the New York theater experience...and carry the biggest ticket prices.

    Off Broadway shows are professional, but not conceived for big theater staging - or perhaps not working with a big enough budget.

    Off Off Broadway combines professional shows breaking into the public's attention with avant garde or experimental theater that will never attract a huge general audience, but can be an amazing experience for those who do catch them...

    Then you have the local groups that present works at college spaces and other smaller venues around town and a few dinner theaters scattered in the outer boroughs and suburbs. Movies are shown all around town, but there isn't much difference between movie houses in New York and anywhere else. The fun of movies in New York is finding out if any are shooting while you're around - you may even get to be an extra in a movie ot TV show that's being filmed in NYC!

    If you are looking for some good entertainment any of these can fit the bill, but for that once in a lifetime experience or as a memorable tourist experience - you really do need to see a Broadway hit while you're in town...
