Save on NYC's Best Theater During 2 for 1 Broadway Week!January 15, 2018 - by Alison Durkee
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 who want to kick off 2018 with a Broadway show can take advantage of Broadway Week, which will offer 2-for-1 tickets to top musicals and plays.
Broadway Week, a promotion offered through NYC & Company, will take place this winter from January 16th through February 4th. 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).

Nineteen Broadway shows will be participating in Broadway Week this winter, including both beloved favorites and new tenants on the Great White Way. New Yorkers and visitors alike can take advantage of the promotion to see some of the hottest new Broadway shows, including the Tony award-winning revival of Hello, Dolly!, which will star Broadway legend Bernadette Peters beginning January 20, and SpongeBob SquarePants, a musical take on the long-running Nickelodeon show. Musical lovers can also enjoy two shows by the songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty: the revival of Once on This Island and Anastasia, a musical adaptation of the beloved animated film.

Playgoers, meanwhile, can get discounted tickets for a selection of hits from across the pond, including the farcical British comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, Lucy Kirkwood’s post-apocalyptic play The Children, and Farinelli and the King, a new play starring Mark Rylance that debuted at Shakespeare’s Globe in London and recreates its atmosphere through onstage seating and candlelit lighting. Broadway Week will also give theatregoers the chance to see some of their favorite stars take the stage, including Uma Thurman in The Parisian Woman, John Lithgow in John Lithgow: Stories By Heart, and John Leguizamo in Latin History for Morons.
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 musical Phantom of the Opera and newer hit School of Rock, as well as on such long-running shows as Wicked and Chicago. The promotion also includes shows from more recent Broadway seasons that are still going strong, including Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; A Bronx Tale; Kinky Boots; and Disney’s newest Broadway mainstay, Aladdin (Lion King participated, too, but already at press time it was sold out!).
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 February 12-25, and participating shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
