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 warm up winter 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 Tuesday, January 21st through Sunday, February 9th. 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-one shows will be participating in Broadway Week this winter, including both beloved favorites and newcomers to the Great White Way. Musical fans can enjoy some of the newest fare to hit Broadway, including Girl from the North Country, which features the music of Bob Dylan, and Jagged Little Pill, which features music by Alanis Morissette. Those looking for a new play to discover may enjoy Grand Horizons, about a couple who suddenly decides to split after 50 years of marriage, or the Broadway debut of A Soldier’s Play, which won the Pulitzer Prize following its off-Broadway premiere in 1982. Playgoers can also check out recent arrivals from across the pond, like My Name Is Lucy Barton, which stars actress Laura Linney, or the epic two-part play The Inheritance, which won the Olivier Award for best new play on London’s West End.

Theatergoers can also check out some of last season’s biggest hits, from the Temptations musical Ain’t Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations, to Beetlejuice, a macabre hit based on the classic Tim Burton film. Also on offer is Aaron Sorkin’s hit adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, along with recent musical hits like Come From Away, Mean Girls, and Dear Evan Hansen. Harry Potter fanatics, meanwhile, will be happy to know they can take advantage of Broadway Week to grab 2-for-1 tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is presented in two parts.
Broadway Week audiences can also use the promotion to visit (or revisit!) some of Broadway’s most enduring hits. Family audiences can delight in The Lion King or Aladdin, while those looking for some slightly more grown-up fare can check out the long-running The Book of Mormon. Broadway’s longest tenants, Chicago and The Phantom of the Opera, will also be participating in Broadway Week, along with Wicked. No matter what you’re looking for from a night at the theater, Broadway Week is sure to have you covered.
Broadway Week will take place this winter from January 21-February 9. For tickets and more information, visit NYCgo.com.
