This can get confusing, but bear with us! We cover shows operating under Broadway and Off-Broadway contracts as well as live T.V. musicals such as Hairspray Live, Peter Pan Live, and Sound of Music Live. Broadway counts as theaters with at least 500 seats where all actors are paid and abide by Actors’ Equity Association’s Broadway contracts. Off-Broadway is similar to Broadway but Off-Broadway theaters house 100-499 seats. These productions must pay their actors under AEA rules. We do not cover Off-Off-Broadway. These rules are not to exclude productions but to protect our very small staff of four people.
