History on Broadway

Broadway as we know it today began in the 1900s, where it was just beginning to make an impact in New York City culture. It was flippantly disregarded by critics and more "serious" theatre goers, as its themes were far from reality with a whimsical feel. These early productions were targeted at middle class New Yorkers itching for some entertainment, and they often found it with front row seats costing a mere $2.00.
