What do you mean by Off Broadway on Broadway?


Broadway and Off Broadway are differentiated primarily by the number of seats in the theater. Broadway theaters must seat at least 500 people, whereas Off Broadway theaters seat less than 500 and more than 99 (100-499). The Theater Center is unique in that it is an Off Broadway theater, physically located on the street of Broadway.
