It’s that time of the year when theater is actually quite affordable with two huge discounted events: The Broadway League’s Broadway Week, through February 6, with 2-for-1 tickets (buy one at regular price, get one free), and Off Broadway’s 20at20.

Broadway Week

Broadway Week has 26 participating shows. They include After Midnight, The Bridges of Madison County, Bronx Bombers, The Glass Menagerie, Matilda, Newsies, Once, and Pippin; and long-run champs Chicago, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia!, and Phantom of the Opera. (2-for-1 tickets for Beautiful, Kinky Boots, The Lion King, Motown The Musical, and Wicked are sold out; Book of Mormon isn’t participating.)

For a complete list, details (such as age suitability), and ticket sales, visit www. Enter the sweepstakes for dinner at participating restaurants for a party of six. There is a 10-ticket limit per each 24-hour period.

The 2-for-1 sales apply to box office, phone, and online sales. Certain restrictions apply, online and phone bookings will add service fees (to avoid, purchase at box offices), and there are some blackout dates. Some theatres add a facility charge. Sponsors of Broadway Week include American Express, Amtrak, WNBC-4, and NYC & Company.

20at20 Off Broadway

The non-profit Off Broadway Alliance is presenting 20at20 through February 9. There are 51 shows to select from. You simply got to the participating show’s box office 20 minutes prior to showtime (matinees and evening shows) and present your $20. For a complete list of participating shows and venues, visit

Peter Breger, OFA chair says, “This is an extraordinary year for Off Broadway and 20at20 provides a great opportunity to see wonderful shows that shouldn’t be missed. There’s something for everyone, and at $20 a performance, you can see them all.”

Besides the bargain price, there’s an exciting bonus: If you purchase tickets to seven shows, the OFA will throw in dinner! Save your ticket stubs and mail to the OFA for voucher [one per person]. Participating restaurants include Amali, Big Daddy’s, City Crab, Duke’s, Havana Central, Juniors, Mercadito, Tir Na Nog, and Wright.

Highlights: the hilarious and long-running audience favorite Tony-winning Best Musical (2003) Avenue Q; the long-running Black Angels Over Tuskegee, based on the story of  WWII’s Afro-American USAF pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group; Carol Lawrence, West Side Story’s original Maria, in the comedy Handle With Care; A Man’s a Man, the Bertolt Brecht farce with music by Duncan Sheik, the award-winning composer of Spring Awakening; the hilarious musical Murder for Two; the whimsical NEWsical the musical; adult fare, such as the cult “sexy and naughty vaudeville, burlesque, cirque mash-up” La Soiree (one side of the theatre isn’t raked, blurring some sight lines -- so take a booster seat if you’re short or opt for seating in balcony’s  first two rows), Naked Boys Singing!; Riding the Midnight Express, by and starring Billy Hayes, the author of the controversial book about his imprisonment in a Turkish prison (the basis for the film Midnight Express), and Showgirls! The Musical!; family fare such as The Amazing Max, Angelina Ballerina, Gazillion Bubble Show, C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; The Wonderful Wizard of Song: The Music of Harold Arlen, and direct from America’s Got Talent, those black light dazzlers of iLuminate, who fuse music, dance and technology; revivals of Hamlet, Sean O'Casey’s Juno and the Paycock, Joe Orton’s Loot, and Shaw’s Saint Joan; and a revival of John Cariani 2006 charming and nostalgic Almost, Maine, comprised of nine short plays exploring love and loss in a remote, mythical “almost-town.”  

20at20 tickets, all subject to availability, are cash only and available at respective boxoffices. Free dinner offer is valid while supplies last and you cannot select the restaurant. For details visit
