Though Broadway typically gets the spotlight, New York City’s theatre scene goes far beyond the Great White Way. Explore some of the city’s smaller stages this February and March by taking advantage of Off-Broadway Week. Sponsored by NYC & Company, Off-Broadway Week gives theatergoers the chance to purchase 2-for-1 tickets to select Off-Broadway shows. The promotion will run from February 27–March 12, 2017.

Included in this year’s offerings are a wide variety of Off-Broadway shows sure to suit every taste. Those looking to catch a long-running staple of the Off-Broadway scene can catch such hit shows as Avenue Q, the Blue Man Group, Stomp, and The Fantasticks. Musical fans may also want to look into Cagney the Musical, which dramatizes the life of the silver screen star; Spamilton, Forbidden Broadway creator Gerard Alessandrini’s parody on the hottest ticket in town; or Kid Victory, a new musical featuring music by legendary composer John Kander (Chicago, Cabaret).

Those looking for a play to attend, meanwhile, can see Matthew Broderick and Wallace Shawn in Evening at the Talk House at Signature Theater, catch the return of acclaimed one-man show The Object Lesson at New York Theatre Workshop, or take in Man From Nebraska, a new play by Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) featuring Tony winner Reed Birney. Theatergoers wanting to see something a bit more off-kilter are also in luck, with shows on offer that include the truly unique The Gazillion Bubble Show, Naked Boys Singing!, and Drunk Shakespeare.
