Hi, I just recently heard that there is a place called Broadway in Manhattan; which is considered to be a quite popular place, and where you could watch shows.

So, could anyone please tell me what sort of place Broadway is? Some open-aired art-show place? Or a theater?

Thanks.

Broadway is the most fantastic dream-world ...

A collection of almost 40 "legitimate" theaters where hundreds of people gather together to hear & watch a story ...

aka "The Great White Way" ...

Broadway's much more than theaters. It's the longest street in New York City:
