  Broadway theatre
Broadway theatre is often considered the highest professional form of theatre in the United States.
Broadway theatre, or a Broadway show, refers to a performance (usually a stage play or musical) staged in one of the thirty-nine larger professional theatres located in New York City, with 500 seats or more, that appeal to the mass audience.
While the term "Broadway" comes from the street, Broadway, not all Broadway theatres are located on this street.

 The Broadways - Broken Van / The Lawrence Arms - Ghost Stories   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Broadways were one of a handful of bands that formed out of the ashes of Slapstick, along with bands like Tuesday, and later the Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms, and The Honor System.
It is as classic as Broadways material can get, and it shows that they could have kept the band going for at least a little bit longer producing the same material that they had been producing.
The Broadways, being direct descendents to the Slapstick name, deserved to wear it as a badge of honor and to let kids know that there is a life after a successful band.

After more than five years of bringing Broadway's Biggest Hits to Sunday morning listeners across Connecticut, Hartford's WDRC and sister stations WWCO in Waterbury, WMMW in Meriden and WSNG in Torrington have brought down the curtain on the show for the final time.
Program director Dave Nagel broke the news saying station ownership has decided to replace Broadway's Biggest Hits with paid programming in the form of infomercials, despite the fact the program is the most listened-to show on the stations on Sunday.

 George Davis
Weekends were reserved for a vocal group known as The Fabulous Broadways, who were backed by a 4-piece band that featured a 270 lb.
Not long after their return to Jersey, The Broadways were signed to Stang Records, which was owned by the "Love Is Strange" duo of Mickey and Sylvia.
The Broadways started having serious problems with lead singer, Billy Brown, failing to dub the lead on their first release and the company let them go and gave the song to another Jersey group called, The Moments, and the big hit, "Not On The Outside", was born.

 In Music We Trust - Lawrence Arms, The: A Guided Tour of Chicago
The sound is similar to the Broadways, due to the fact its core songwriting team is the same (Brendan and Chris).
Though, the melodic sense coupled with the harsh punk and political take on life, which the Broadways were all about, seems to be lacking here.
What you get with the Lawrence Arms is the same thing you got with the Broadways: quick, sharp punk rock that focused on political issues and went non-stop from the first guitar chord to the final drum beat.

 Punknews.org | The Broadways - Broken Van
I saw the Broadways play numerous times and was always blown away by their energy.
Brenden Kelly was definetly not the only singer in the broadways, as it is quite clear that both the other front men sang songs to, with Dan Hanaway only singing one or two less than Brenden, so you could barely call him the lead singer, never mind the only one.
But while the lawrence arms first album wasn't amazing, ghost stories and apathy were just as good as the broadways, there new album, the greatest story ever told is better than the broadways.

 PunkROCKS.net CD Review - Broadways, The - Broken Van
With The Lawrence Arms and The Honor System rapidly developing identities of their own, Asian Man has allowed us a final glimpse into the The Broadways with the posthumously released "Broken Van", a collection of 6 final recordings and some rarities.
Inklings of the directions the respective members of The Broadways were heading abound on this release, The Lawrence Arms retaining the faster melodic side; The Honor System hitting the slower, experimental side.
That said, if you are a fan of The Broadways you would no doubt enjoy this (or you probably already have it).

Broadway, East Broadway, West Broadway, Old Broadway, Broadway Alley, Broadway Terrace, plus a Broadway in each of the four other boroughs.
Oh, and just to be confusing, there's also a Broadway station on the LIRR that's miles from any of the ten actual Broadways.

 Punknews.org | Broadways - Broken Star
First things first, this band has three singers and none of them can sing all too well (save perhaps for the drummer), and none of them are very proficient with their instruments either.
Scott wrote a review of their second disc Broken Van that goes in-depth about the spiderweb of bands these guys have been involved with so I won’t go into that.
Very true, but attribute this to cocky east coasters who cream their pants when the words kid dynamite are ushered out, but refuse to even listen to bands like the Broadways or Slapstick.

This CD came out a less than a year after the Broadways broke up, and it the songwriting seems as if Brendan had written them around the Broadways era.
The lyrics are more political, which is not a trademark of their later CDs (though not as political as the Broadways were).
The lyrics may not be as poltical as the broadways but they are still kickin with songs like Kevin Costner's Cassino and A guided Tour of Chicago.
