Shopaholics have Black Friday, foodies have Restaurant Week and hardcore theatergoers have Broadway Week, which offers half-price tickets to some of the best Broadway shows, including many Tony Award winners. Organized by New York City Tourism + Conventions, the program is designed to stimulate sales during weeks when Broadway attendance traditionally dips, so everybody wins: The productions get full houses, and savvy audiences get cheap Broadway tickets

What is Broadway Week?

Broadway Week in NYC is a ticket deal offered by Broadway producers and New York City Tourism + Conventions. For a limited time, it lets you buy two tickets to most Broadway shows for the price of one. This does mean that you'll need to buy at least two tickets.

When is Broadway Week?

Broadway Week occurs twice a year, and lasts more than one actual week. The next one spans from January 16 through February 4, 2024. 

How can you get tickets for Broadway Week?

The most popular shows sell out fast, so the earlier you buy your seats, the better chance you have of seeing your first choices. Aim for 10am on the first day if you can, and make sure your accounts are up to date on Telecharge and Ticketmaster are up to date to make the process as fast as possible. Visit the Broadway Week website to buy tickets and peruse the list of participating shows. (MasterCard users get exclusive early access in a presale period from January 3 through January 8.)

What shows are available during Broadway Week?

Nearly every show on Broadway participates in Broadway Week, though not all. The January edition in 2024 includes 23 out of the current 25 productions. The full list of participating shows goes live on January 9, the first day of ticket sales. The Broadway Week website has FAQ guidelines on exactly how to enter your discount code with each ticket vendor.

What seats are available during Broadway Week?

The tickets sold through Broadway Week tend to be ones that producers are most eager to sell: in balconies, mezzanines and side areas. If you want to splurge on some of the best seats in the house, you can use the "upgrade" option to pay $125 for tickets that would otherwise often cost a good deal more. 

Is there an Off-Broadway Week?

Indeed there is. Like Broadway Week, Off-Broadway Week comes but twice a year, and information about it can be found at the Off-Broadway Week website. The next edition ranges from February 12 through March 3, 2024; tickets go on sale on January 30.
