This paper takes a look at the changes that Broadway, as a physical place, as well as a genre, has undergone since its inception, in an attempt to understand why modern Broadway musicals are not doing as well as they had in earlier years. The paper concludes that the diminishing popularity of Broadway today is due to both financial reasons and audience-motivated reasons.

From the Paper:

"Currently, according to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, at least one fourth of the 30 million visitors to New York each year still come to see a Broadway play (Kroll 64), making it one of the top reasons tourists travel to New York. However, while there indeed seems to be a resurgence of interest in Broadway, there is a great disparity in profits for older musicals and revivals of shows from earlier decades and the more current modern musicals."
