‘Once,’ ‘Newsies,’ ‘Jersey Boys’ Offer Two-for-One Tickets During Broadway Week

“Once,” “Newsies” and “Jersey Boys” are among the many Broadway shows offering two-for-one tickets during Broadway Week, which will run from January 22 through February 7.

“This winter we encourage New Yorkers and visitors to take advantage of this two-for-one ticket savings opportunity and experiences some of the best theatre in the country for an extremely affordable price,” said CEO of NYC & Company George Fertitta in a statement.

This is the fifth year Broadway Week has been held, and here is the complete list of all shows offering the deal:

“Annie,” “Chicago,” “The Heiress,” “Jersey Boys,” “The Lion King,” “Mamma Mia!” “Mary Poppins,” “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” “Newsies,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” “Once,” “The Other Place,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Picnic,” “Rock of Ages,” “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Wicked.”

Additionally, Off-Broadway week will run from January 28 though February 10, offering the same two-for-one ticket sales. A slew of Off-Broadway shows are participating in the event, including “Avenue Q,” “Blue Man Group” and “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Broadway Week may be coming at a good time, as the New York Times reports today, January 8, that the Broadway box office is going through a “cold spell.” The paper reports that five productions closed on Sunday, including “Chaplin” and “Dead Accounts,” the play starring Katie Holmes and Norbert Leo Butz.

Other productions that have announced they will close before the end of the month are “Elf,” “Grace,” “War Horse,” “Evita,” “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Golden Boy and “Peter and the Starcatcher.” But there is some good news, including the fact that all Broadway plays grossed $24.5 million last week, which is an improvement over the $24 million from the same time last year. Additionally, some productions, including “The Book of Mormon,” “Wicked” and “The Lion King,” continue to perform well at the box office.
