Broadway used to be one of the most popular entertainment destinations that you could go to in New York City, but a lot of people are taking a different toll on the matter. They think that Broadway is washed up in a sense, and that everybody is just used to getting their entertainment from their phones. While this is somewhat true, that doesn’t mean that Broadway is no longer popular – as a matter of fact, there are a lot of people who are just starting to get into the Broadway spirit. There have been a lot of amazing plays to take place on the Broadway stage, and there are seemingly many more to come.
Most people will prefer a movie or two over any Broadway play, but that just means that it’s a little more niche these days. Kids aren’t growing up interested in theatre any longer, and if they are, they’re usually destined for greatness within the entertainment industry. That has to mean something, right? The number of people that try to break into the entertainment industry every single year is staggering, to say the least. There are a lot of broken dreams to take into consideration, but those that rise to the top tend to have relatively long tenures on the Broadway stage. If you’ve seen somebody on Broadway and feel like they are doing a great job, odds are you’ll be seeing them on the big screen relatively soon.
There are still ties to the entertainment industry from Broadway, and it doesn’t look like it’s ever going to change. Of course, there is no telling what people will being doing in a thousand years, and whether theatres will even be viable by that point in time – but so far, they’ve been around for well over 200 years. If you take into account the ancient empires that had people re-enacting famous voyages that certain soliders and kings had taken, there’s almost no telling how old the act of portraying stories on the stage really is.
They say that what goes around, comes around – and in this case, I feel like theatre is going to come back with a big boom relatively soon. Theatre shows may come back into fashion just like sneakers from the 90’s did, or even distressed jeans (for those of you that don’t know, distressed jeans have been around since the 70’s).
If you’ve never been to a Broadway show in the past, I would strongly suggest that you check one out. You never know what you’re missing out on until you’ve given it a shot! Besides, Broadway is a piece of history in itself. It isn’t the Eiffel Tower, but it’s still something that is worth looking into if you ever find yourself in the New York City area. Don’t like theatre? That’s fine, as there are movie theatres on just about every single corner in today’s world.
