For those of you not familiar with NYC Broadway Week: It's a celebration of New York City's theatre district, the shows that entertain us, and Broadway itself. Some of the most popular shows in New York offer 2-for-1 deals for you to see them live, or pay a bit extra if you want upgraded seats. If you've been thinking about stepping out and seeing a show, this is your chance!
It's best summed up by NYC Broadway Weeks' website:
There’s nothing like live theater—and no place for it like NYC.
As Broadway makes the comeback of the century, this is your chance to experience some of its spectacular shows in a whole new light.
NYC Broadway Week returns this winter with its signature deal: 2-for-1 tickets to some of the best musicals and plays on stage right now. Prefer to splurge? Opt for upgraded seats at $125 per ticket.NYC Broadway Week
So how does Broadway week really work?
During Broadway week (which is actually January 18 until February 13), you have the ability to browse particular shows and get tickets to them much cheaper than normal (two for one, in fact).
The best bit is that these shows aren't small never-heard-of shows, they're the big ones! They're the popular ones that you really want to see, and they're worth every penny.
How do you book tickets for the special Broadway Week deals?
It's really very easy:
- Go to the official NYC Broadway Week 2022 website
- Scroll down the page and find a show that interests you (I've got some recommendations below)
- Pick one that you love
- Book through the Book Now button!
There are no catches, this is an official NYC-run organization and in partnership with all these wonderful shows. In many cases you'll book through the show's normal online ticketing system but you will be presented with options based on the coupon code you enter from the Broadway Week website!
This is your chance to see some Broadway and I promise you won't regret it.
