Broadway and Off Broadway productions get most of the attention, but to get a true sense of the range and diversity of New York theater, you need to look to the smaller productions collectively known as Off-Off Broadway. There are about 200 Off-Off stages in New York, mostly with fewer than 99 seats. Experimental and avant-garde plays thrive in New York's best Off-Off Broadway venues; that's where you'll find many of the city's most challenging and original pieces, and get early looks at major talents. But Off-Off is more than just the weird stuff: It also includes everything from magic shows to revivals of rarely seen classics. What's more, it tends to be affordable; while cheap Broadway tickets can be hard to find, most Off-Off Broadway shows are in the $15–$25 range. Here are some of the current shows that hold the most promise.
