Hello, Theatre-Goers!

Looking to learn more about New York City's Broadway scene? Broadway Buzz is a website founded as a platform to do just that — educate even the most beginner theatre-goers about all things NYC BROADWAY.




So, what's all the "buzz" about Broadway anyway?


For generations, the Broadway theater district has brought captivating hit musicals and classic modern dramas to visitors. Today, the dazzling lights of Times Square attract millions of theatergoers annually. Buzzworthy blockbusters play next to small downtown transfers; revivals of 1930s productions run side-by-side with cutting-edge, technically advanced productions; young, aspiring actors take the stage with veteran stars and celebrities fresh from Hollywood films. Whether you’re getting your tickets straight from the box office, buying online or waiting in line at the infamous TKTS booth, Broadway offers a Times Square experience for everyone to enjoy.

You know what they say ... There’s no business like show business. Especially on Broadway. Seeing a show is an experience of a lifetime. One that we believe all should experience. If you want to stay in the loop on Broadway reviews, current and upcoming productions, and more, you have come to the right place.
