Broadway on Broadway is a free annual outdoor concert kicking off the Broadway season each September, co-produced by the League and the Times Square Alliance. The event takes place in Times Square, which is shut down for the concert. Broadway on Broadway was conceived in 1992 as a welcome party for delegates to the Democratic National Convention, which was held in New York that year. The concert returned in July 1993 and 1994 and moved to September on 1995; it has been held in mid-September ever since

Broadway on Broadway has now become the community’s traditional season opener event, drawing tens of thousands of fans to the “crossroads of the world” each September. Broadway theatre, commonly called simply Broadway, is a theatrical performance presented in one of the 40 professional theatres with 500 or more seats located in the Theatre District centered along Broadway, and in Lincoln Center, in Manhattan in New York City Along with London's West End theatre, Broadway theatre is widely considered to represent the highest level of commercial theatre in the English-speaking world.

The Broadway theatre district is a popular tourist attraction in New York. According to The Broadway League, Broadway shows sold approximately $1.081 billion worth of tickets in calendar year 2011, compared with $1.037 billion for 2010. Attendance in 2011 was 12.13 million. Although there are now more exceptions than previously, generally shows with open-ended runs have evening performances Tuesday through Saturday with a 7:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m. "curtain" and afternoon "matinée" performances on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays and 3:00 p.m. on Sundays, making an eight-performance week. On this schedule, most shows do not play on Monday, and the shows and theatres are said to be "dark" on that day. Actors and the crew in these shows tend to regard Sunday evening through Tuesday evening as their weekend. The Tony award presentation ceremony is usually held on a Sunday evening in June to fit into this schedule.
