Last Updated On

Off-Broadway Week NYC


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.

NYC Off Broadway Week Offers


During Off-Broadway Week, two offers can be usually availed:

1. Buy 2 for 1 Off-Broadway Tickets

As part of this offer, you can purchase two off-Broadway show tickets for the price of one, including both Mezzanine and Orchestra sections. Nonetheless, the offer is not valid for all seats in the respective theatre during the Off-Broadway week but only select seats.

2. Upgrade Offer

The Upgrade offer is quite different from the standard Off-Broadway Week offer and may not always be available. The Upgrade offer is a great way to save money on select premium seats in the theatre. It allows you to purchase premium seats at a 50% discount + $20. As is the case with the Off-Broadway Week offer, this offer is also valid on select seats and not all.

Tips for Off-Broadway Week NYC


  • 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!
