IV. Time to Read

Read the information about theatres in America and correct the mistakes in the statements given below.

Theatres in the USA

Broadway is New York City’s legendary theatre district. Here new plays were born and nurtured and stars were made. All the large Commercial theatres are located there. Today the musical play dominates Broadway and captures the attention of audiences at home and from abroad.

During the 1980s, the center of theater has shifted to off-Broadway. Today off-Broadway theatres are found throughout the city. You can find them in the buildings of former garages, offices and even stores. They are also known as ‘theatre-in-the-round’. If you come to such a theatre, you’ll see that the actors perform in the center of the room, while the audience surrounds it in all sides.

Real theatrical adventure can also be found in the hundreds of regional theatres. They often experiment and try to introduce the plays of new playwrights. Many of them regularly send the best of their seasons to New York. As you see, these theatres play an important role in developing American theater.


1. New York is a theater district.
