It takes hundreds of people to put on one Broadway show. But only a few dozen are ever seen on a stage. The rest of them are backstage, offstage, in orchestra pits and in dressing rooms. They are in box offices, in stage management offices and perched up high on fly rails. And without them, Broadway wouldn’t happen eight times a week.
I know NY’ers usually get excited about Broadway week, when they can finally afford a night out to the Great White Way, but I’ve always found Off-Broadway Week to be far more exciting.
