A selection of Broadway and off-Broadway shows.
The Flea Theater
Maybe the tiniest and the coziest theater in the city. Located in a private townhouse it has this special NYC vibe due to brick walls, dim lights and narrow corridors with dark carpets. The stage occupies the former living room and you feel almost part of the play 'cause it's so intimate. The staff is nice and welcomes you as an old friend. Tickets start from $20 and they're playing mainly comedies and dramas.
A lovely theater in the picturesque district of West Village. Go to this small and quaint venue with great acoustics to see No Parole – a hilarious story about the adventures of a charming artist. The price is just $25. And if you are there in the summer enjoy an after-show stroll in this cozy neighbourhood.
The Kraine Theater
This tiny off-Broadway theater plays mostly experimental and student productions so the audience is young and creative.
The space is small and the stage isn't raised - but the seating slopes, so that you will see and hear everything perfectly no matter where you are. The atmosphere is nice and intimate, the stuff is caring and tickets just $10-15.
Located at the heart of Central Park, this open-air theater is summer-only. From late June to mid August, you can enjoy a Shakespeare play, featuring stars such as Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman and Al Pacino.
Entry is free but the number of seats – limited, so you must get a ticket on the spot. Don't forget to check the weather – no love for drama will save you under the heat.
