  • Broadway Theaters 
    Seven days a week, visitors and locals pour into Broadway's 40 theaters, eager to experience the award-winning musicals, critically acclaimed revivals and star-studded plays that define Midtown's Theatre District. During the 2010–2011 Broadway season (June to May), more than 12 million people headed to a Broadway show—many securing tickets to see more than one. It's this dedicated fan base that made The Phantom of the Opera the longest-running show currently on Broadway. It's also why, in 1947, the Tony Awards were established to give notable shows recognition. At the inaugural ceremony, winners received a scroll. Men also walked away with a money clip, while women took home a commemorative compact. Though some things have changed since then (the modern prize for top theater honors is a medallion with the symbols of comedy and tragedy), the Great White Way remains a quintessential part of New York City culture.
