Tickets on sale this morning (1/7) for NYC's Broadway Week!

Broadway Week returns with 2-for-1 Tickets to popular shows

The always-in-gear NYC tourist board is trying to kick those infamous January Great White Way Blahs (or the JGWWB as its known) with 2-for-1 tickets deals on 19 Broadway plays and musical starting Tuesday, January 22 through Thursday February 7th. Sure, that’s more like three weeks, but we won’t complain. 

The initiative was started a few years back as a way to beet the post-holiday slump in tickets sales and combat general city-wide winter-doldrums. It has become a wonderful way to get inexpensive tickets for some amazing shows. There are surprisingly few restrictions and an impressive variety of high quality shows from legendary long-running musicals (like Phantom of the Opera) to popular new comers  (like Newsies).

So, why are we telling you about this so far in advance? Because tickets for this discount go on sale this morning at 10:30 AM and the most popular shows nad dates will fill up fast! More info and links can be found here!
Worth pointing out that this is part of a universal tourist partnership by the city and the theaters rather than an offering from the usual suspicious and concerning off-market ticket agencies. This is all part of Mayor Mike's hard push to create a NYC Tourism Machine that is a never-ending, gear-grinding beast.
