As of today, Thursday, November 1, all Broadway are back to performing as scheduled. However, the fact is that New York City is still not quite back to normal yet, especially in terms of transportation, making it hard for many potential theatergoers to make it to Broadway theaters. To entice audiences, some Broadway shows are making special post-Hurricane Sandy ticket discounts available.
CHAPLIN – The new musical Chaplin is offering a ‘Buy 1 Ticket, Get 1 Ticket Free’ special for Thursday and Friday performances. The offer applies to all price levels, but it can only be obtained if you purchase tickets directly at the box office of the Barrymore Theatre, where Chaplin is playing.
NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT – Even this hit Tony Award-winning musical comedy is offering a post-Sandy special. $37 rush tickets are available for performances this Thursday and Friday to residents of areas that have been affected by the storm, which includes New York, New Jersey, Conecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Tickets can be purchased starting at 10am at the Imperial Theatre box office and a valid photo ID is required. 2 ticket limit. Seats are subject to availability.
THE PERFORMERS – This new comedy’s “Sandy Special” means that ticket buyers can get tickets for the Thursday, November 1 performance for just $29.50 for the best available seats. Must purchase directly at the Longacre Theatre box office.
It is possible that other Broadway shows are offering ticket specials as well, so it is worth visiting their official websites or theater box offices to see what ticket discounts might be available in the coming days.
