New York City is the greatest city in the world for attending the theater. The variety and quality of theater here are unparalleled. This is a virtue and a curse.
It is difficult to navigate the seemingly infinite number of productions, the multiple ticket selling websites, and the endless reviews and listings.
On Maxamoo’s New York City Theater Podcast we cut through that chaos and just tell you: what’s good, what’s bad, and what we recommend.
We base our recommendations on the quality and characteristics of the production, not theater size. So the terms Broadway, Off Broadway, and Off Off Broadway (which are all technical terms describing the location and number of seats in a theater) are not important to us.
We strive to include diverse, interesting, and innovative productions, shows you’re probably missing if you rely on mainstream publications like the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York, which cover only a tiny fraction of the arts, culture, and theater world.
For a time Maxamoo published written reviews and recommendations about New York City theater. All of those past articles can be found under Archive. Now Maxamoo covers New York City theater through our podcast programing, including roundtable discussions on Maxamoo’s New York City Theater Podcast and artist interviews on the Playwrights & Performers Podcast.
