Personal Quote:

Broadway is different now than in our parents' generation. The number of straight plays opening there now is so small compared to the 1950s, '60s and '70s. I see many more plays Off Broadway by dint of ticket price and what's being produced. If it costs more, it has to reach a larger audience. That's why there aren't more risky plays on Broadway.
