NYC Broadway Week Coming with 2-for-1 Show Tickets January 21 – February 6, 2014

I absolutely loved taking my family to see their first Broadway show.  My daughters’ eyes sparkled from the lights of Times Square to get to the Broadway theater.  Of course it’s not cheap to take an entire family to a Broadway show, and that’s why people wait for good deals, and one of the best ones is NYC Broadway Week offering 2-for-1 tickets to many performances.  Normally, this event is held in the Fall, but a special NYC Broadway Week was announced for January/February 2014 – the same time as Super Bowl XLVIII held across the river at Met Life Stadium.  Continue reading for the complete listing of the shows and how to purchase tickets.

“Whether theatergoers are seeing a new musical or an old classic, going to a Broadway show is an iconic New York City experience,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company.  “We encourage New Yorkers and visitors as well as football fans in town for Super Bowl XLVIII to take advantage of the 2-for-1 Broadway Week promotion and enjoy a wonderful theatrical performance.”

“NYC & Company’s innovative 2-for-1 program is a smart way for New Yorkers and visitors to tackle Broadway this Super Bowl season! Broadway Week is now becoming a semi-annual event for savvy theater fans who love plays and musicals – and more shows are participating than ever before,” says Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League.  “As our city is getting ready to welcome a live celebrated sports event that applauds teamwork and an ensemble cast of star athletes, a live theatrical performance on Broadway is also a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Okay NFL fans, show us your plays, and we’ll show you our plays.”

Through NYC & Company’s Broadway Week promotion, more than 350,000 2-for-1 theater tickets have been sold, generating over $22 million in revenue since the semiannual campaign was launched in January 2011.
