Its counterpart, Broadway Week, will take place before Off-Broadway Week in the first two weeks of September.

What is the difference between Broadway & Off-Broadway?
If you’re new to the world of theater, you may wonder what exactly the difference between Broadway and Off-Broadway is. Broadway is New York’s official theater district. In order to qualify as a Broadway theater, the theater…
1) needs to be located between 40th and 54th St. and between 6th and 8th Ave and
2) its capacity must exceed 500 seats. Theaters with lower capacities are considered Off-Broadway. You could, therefore, say that Off-Broadway shows are typically smaller. They can be located anywhere throughout the city.
