New york-hoz csak szeretnék Chicago-t hasonlitani, de New york az igazi, mint ahogy ezt a szinházak is bizonyitják.
Local theater groups debate merits of taking shows to New York

In recent years, plays have been transferred from Chicago to New York with the regularity of trains. And the rails between Chicago and Broadway are made of the same metal as the Tonys. The Goodman Theatre’s transfers of “A Long Day’s Journey Into Night” and “Death of a Salesman” racked up seven Tony Awards.
“Having a New York transfer is nice, but that’s not what we’re about,” said Guthrie artistic director Joe Dowling, echoing a common sentiment. “What we are about is creating a national center here in the Midwest that will allow people to come to us, and that serves this audience, first and foremost.”
The comparisons with other cities, particularly Chicago, rankles theater leaders a little. Chicago is perpetually compared with New York, whereas the Twin Cities are in another category.
