Broadway Week Coming Up September 2-15

Broadway Week_edited_3Broadway Week is back. Occurring twice annually, Broadway Week is a promotional event in which participating Broadway shows offer 2-for-1 ticket deals for a limited time. This year, Broadway Week — which is always more than a week long — is scheduled for September 2-15.

To take advantage of these buy one get one free Broadway ticket deals, ticket buyers just use a special discount code when they buy their tickets through their selected show’s official ticket seller.

While many Broadway shows take part in Broadway Week, not all do. Some top-selling Broadway musicals such as The Book of Mormon, Motown the Musical, Pippin, Matilda, and Kinky Boots are not offering two for one discount deals, presumably because they are doing so well selling full-price tickets right now that they are unwilling to offer any kind of discount, even for a limited period of time.

Broadway WeekInterestingly, though, the two most popular shows on Broadway right now, The Lion King and Wicked, are participating in Broadway Week. The reason for this likely has to do with the fact that Wicked and The Lion King have both been running on Broadway for a long time and have long since paid back their investments, meaning they can better afford to briefly offer a promotional discount.  That said, the discount allotment for those two shows have already sold out, so hopeful Broadway Week buyers should be sure to act fast next time.

Broadway Week: Get 1/2 Price Broadway Tickets September 4-16

Broadway Week has returned, and it’s offering Broadway theater lovers an opportunity to see plays and musicals at a significant 50% discount.  From September 4 through September 16, most currently-running Broadway shows will be offering special 2-for-1 ticket deals, allowing two or more people to enjoy a Broadway production at a deep discount.

Virtually all Broadway shows are participating in Broadway Week, among them:  Chicago, Porgy and Bess, Mamma Mia!, Mary Poppins, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Peter and the Starcatcher, The Phantom of the Opera, Rock of Ages, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, and War Horse.

Broadway Week also offers an opportunity to catch brand-new Broadway shows such as the competitive cheerleading-themed Bring It On: The Musical, the new bio-musical Chaplin, and the drama An Enemy of the People.

Even several popular Broadway shows that rarely discount are participating, such as The Lion King, Jersey Boys, Evita, Once, and Newsies.  However, these shows often have greater restrictions and the inventory frequently sells out quickly, so buy your tickets fast if you are interested in them (as of this writing, Wicked has already sold out of the tickets allocated for the special Broadway Week deal).

Broadway Week is produced by NYC & Company in partnership with The Broadway League.  To find out how to take advantage of these two-for-one ticket deals, visit the Broadway Week website here.
