New York is known for Broadway, but there are also plenty of excellent performances to be seen off-Broadway. Productions often feature award-winning or up-and-coming actors, and many shows go on to be performed on Broadway. These are five of the hottest off-Broadway shows so far this year.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a unique piece of theater. The play is performed by a different actor every time. The actor is given the script immediately before the performance and has no opportunity to read it in advance or rehearse. The play is a comment on the effects of living in an authoritarian society.
