It's my favorite time of year: Broadway Week in New York City, where you can save big on buzz–worthy Broadway shows thanks to 2-For-1 ticket deals on select shows Sept. 2nd thru Sept. 15th.
Options this year include brand new shows like Big Fish, First Date, Forever Tango, Soul Doctor, The Trip to Bountiful, a new production of Romeo & Juliet starring Condola Rashad and heartthrob Orlando Bloom, and a new version of The Glass Menagerie starring Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto. More family-friendly shows include Annie, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, The Lion King, and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Also available are discounted tickets for perennial favorites like Chicago, Jersey Boys, Wicked, Mamma Mia!, Newsies, Once, Rock of Ages, and The Phantom of the Opera.
To book tickets, go to the New York City tourism website, pick out your show, and enter the promotional code listed during checkout. Seat upgrades can also be purchased for an additional $20 per ticket—enter promo code BWAYUP at checkout. A minimum of two tickets must be purchased. Visit the website for more information about blackout dates. Check out the Inside Broadway tab on their website for a sneak peek at how things work behind the curtain—view interviews with the casting director for Chicago, the stage manager for Rock of Ages, and several set designers who help make sure everything's running smoothly during showtime.
