New York City has been a cornerstone of the global theatre industry for almost a century, with some of the biggest names in the business calling the city home—although because of that, it’s often easy to forget that NYC’s five boroughs are also the home to more than 200+ neighborhood theatres, companies, and festivals, featuring amazing local talent all year-round.

In an effort to shine a light on all the great local theatre happening all over the city, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment has partnered with Show-Score to create ALL NEW YORK’S A STAGE, the first citywide campaign to give audiences the opportunity to discover musicals and dramas, immersive and site-specific performances, staged readings, and previews that may be just around the corner from where they live or work.
All throughout October, theater lovers and cultural visitors can discover what’s playing in small venues beyond Broadway at localtheater.nyc, which is the official ALL NEW YORK’S A STAGE website. You’ll find a complete neighborhood-by-neighborhood listing of the hundreds of small theater productions and events happening throughout the five boroughs, as well as reviews and recommendations from other theatergoers and professional theater reviewers.
