NYC Broadway Week Basics
NYC Broadway Week is a twice-yearly celebration of live theater at its pinnacle: the Broadway stage. Since 2011, the program has invited show goers to explore a multitude of Broadway’s electric productions with 2-for-1 tickets—one of the only offers of its kind.
NYC Broadway Week Fall 2018 runs from September 3 through 16. To buy tickets, visit the official NYC Broadway Week page. Browse the entire lineup of participating productions or filter by genre, family-friendly shows and even recent Tony Award winners.
Tips for NYC Broadway Week
Here’s how to make the most of this sensational program.
1. Book Early
Ticket quantities are limited and top shows sell out quickly. Sometimes additional seats are released throughout the program, but it’s best to book ahead.
2. Opt for an Upgrade
Upgraded seats are available for the same 2-for-1 offer, plus an additional $20 per ticket. Keep in mind that upgraded tickets often have a higher starting value than regular tickets.
3. Go with a Group
The 2-for-1 offer translates to 50% off each individual ticket, with a two-ticket minimum—so you can get multiple friends in on this great deal.
4. Do Dinner (or Lunch) and a Show
Look for special pre-theater menus at nearby restaurants.
5. Enter the Sweeps
The NYC Broadway Week Sweepstakes offers two chances to win a free pair of tickets to select performances. Fall 2018 drawings will take place on September 4 and September 10.
6. Do Your Homework
Brush up on Broadway performers’ personal favorite scenes.
7. It’s Never Just a Week
NYC Broadway Week can seem fleeting, but it’s always longer than seven days—plenty of time to catch a show or three.
