Broadway is home to some of the highest quality productions in the world — and, unfortunately, also some of the highest ticket prices. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to save money on tickets to the Great White Way. Theatergoers heading to Broadway this September can take advantage of Broadway Week, which will offer 2-for-1 tickets to top Broadway shows. 

Broadway Week, a promotion offered through NYC & Company, will take place this year from September 4-17. Ticket buyers can purchase 2-for-1 tickets using the code BWAYWK through the promotion, as well as upgrade their tickets for just $20 using code BWAYUP (subject to availability).

Twenty-three Broadway shows will be participating in Broadway Week this September, including both beloved favorites and new tenants on the Great White Way. Broadway fans can take advantage of the promotion to see some of the hottest new Broadway shows, including the Tony award-winning revival of Hello, Dolly with Bette Midler; Prince of Broadway, a new show celebrating the work of legendary director and producer Hal Prince, and War Paint, which stars Broadway divas Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole as makeup mavens Helena Rubenstein and Elizabeth Arden. Broadway Week is also the perfect chance to catch new musicals Groundhog Day and Bandstand, which took home this year’s Tony for Best Choreography, before both shows take their final bow on September 17.

Playgoers, meanwhile, can get discounted tickets for the hit new play A Doll’s House Part 2, now starring Tony winner Julie White and Tony nominee Stephen McKinley Henderson, and the farcical new British comedy The Play That Goes Wrong. Those wishing for something a bit more political can take in a new adaptation of 1984, featuring Olivia Wilde, or see famed documentarian Michael Moore take the stage in his new show The Terms of My Surrender.

Of course, Broadway Week also offers the perfect chance to revisit some of Broadway’s beloved classics. The Broadway Week discount can be used for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musicals Phantom of the Opera and Cats, as well as on such long-running hits as Wicked, Chicago, and The Lion King. The promotion also includes shows from more recent Broadway seasons that are still going strong, including Waitress, an adaptation of the 2007 film with music by Sara Bareilles; Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Disney’s newest Broadway hit Aladdin; and 2013 Tony winner Kinky Boots.

In addition to Broadway Week, Off-Broadway theatergoers will also soon have a chance to save. NYC & Company will offer an Off-Broadway Week from September 25–October 8, and participating shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
