WHAT AND WHEN IS BROADWAY WEEK?
Broadway Week is a two-week period during the year when you can get two-for-the-price-of-one tickets to many Broadway shows.
Broadway Week takes place twice a year, once in late January to early February and again in September.
In 2023, the September Broadway Week dates haven't been announced yet, so check back.
If you are planning a trip around these times, then check out our posts on things to do in January, Februaryy September.
HOW TO GET TICKETS
The most popular shows will sell out very quickly, so be ready to buy tickets as soon as the list of shows is announced.

You can improve your chances of getting tickets by finding out in advance when Broadway Week will take place as well as when tickets will go on sale.
Also, have a list of several shows you would like to see. This way, if one is sold out, you have others you can try for.

OTHER WAYS TO GET DISCOUNT BROADWAY TICKETS
There are a number of ways to get Broadway tickets at good prices.
These include entering ticket lotteries, going to the TKTS booth, and trying for RUSH tickets.
Read through the following posts to find out the many ways you can get discount Broadway tickets.
Also, many tourist discount passes offer savings on select Broadway shows. For example:
- The New York Pass can save you up to 10% off full-price tickets on specific Broadway shows.
- The Sightseeing Pass and The Sightseeing Flex Pass get you $20 off tickets.
There are, of course, many other benefits of getting a tourist pass.
