The Best Off-Broadway Theatres to Visit While Sightseeing NY
Sightseeing NY can be a lot of fun, but sometimes it’s good to unwind and partake in a relaxing yet enjoyable activity. Watching a Broadway show is the perfect way to spend your night after a long day of exploring the city on a double decker bus. But if you don’t want to get caught in the midst of the crowds and are trying to avoid Times Square and Broadway, there are other Broadway shows that you can watch that are off-Broadway. They are equally as well done as the ones that are on Broadway. Here are three of the best off-Broadway shows that you can see after your sightseeing NY tour:
Blue Man Group
Experiencing this blue and bald trio is something everyone needs to do. The Blue Man Group will keep you entertained the entire night while bringing you a multi-sensory experience. The show has already captivated over 35 million people all over the world. It’s full of color and brings together rock, dance, comedy, and theater. The show includes high-tech stage effects and a lot of flying paint. The Blue Man Group performs at the Astor Place Theater on 434 Lafayette Street.
The story of Jersey Boys, a Tony-winning musical, tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and how they became international pop stars. The show describes the rise of a group of friends, the tough times, their personal clashes, and their ultimate triumph. Although the show is focused on a tribute concert, it also develops the story of the friendship and the relationship between the groups. The focus is specifically set on Frankie Valli. It discusses issues related to the mafia and gambling. Jersey Boys plays at New World Stages, Stage One, at 340 West 50th Street.
This show is another Tony-Award winning musical. It also plays at New World Stages but at Stage Three. The musical describes the story of a college graduate who moves to New York with almost no money but very big dreams. Although he can only afford to live on Avenue Q, he ends up having the most interesting and hilarious neighbors.
