Saturday Off

Saturday Off

Some things are not exactly as they seem. Take, for example the term “off-Broadway”. You would think this means a show that isn’t literally on the street named Broadway, but that’s not it.

Actually, it doesn’t refer to the geography at all. Instead, it means the number of seats: Broadway theatres have 500 seats, off-Broadway have 100-499 seats, off-off-Broadway have less than 100 seats. (See https://www.whatsonstage.com/london-theatre/news/20-amazing-theatre-facts_34626.html for more information.)

Now you know!

“The term off-Broadway isn't geographical.”
