Upcoming Edition: September 23 - Oct 6, 2019. Tickets are currently on sale.
Off-Broadway comes twice a year and functions almost along the same lines as a Broadway week. During this particular week, one can buy two off-Broadway tickets at the price of one or avail the Upgrade offer, both described in detail below. Another opportunity to get hold of cheap Off-Broadway tickets is the 20at20 program (run by The Off Broadway Alliance) wherein $20 tickets are offered to guests who arrive at the box office 20 minutes before curtain. As the name suggests, this offer runs for exactly 20 days.

Book at the earliest: Since most popular shows sell like hot cakes and tickets are limited in availability, it would make sense to book as early as possible.
Having a group is key: If you look at the math, the 2-for-1 offer literally translates to a 50% discount on a minimum purchase of two tickets. Hence, gather a group of friends and make the most of this amazing deal.
It's always more than a week: Eventhough the name of the deal might indicate that it's just for a week, it most certainly runs for more than that. In fact, the February 2019 edition lasts for 2 weeks.
Understanding the area: Off-Broadway has a presence in certain parts of Manhattan and Theater District although predominantly affiliated with downtown. Ensure that you double-check the location of the theater prior to the show date.
Shows tend to repeat: Multiple Off-Broadway shows from the past will be featured in Off-Broadway week. So, if there's a favorite that you always wanted to watch for a second or third time, this is your chance!
