Before splurging on tickets to a Broadway show, keep in mind that the official age minimum for most Broadway shows is 4 years old, and every audience member needs a ticket no matter how young. Although I have seen parents sneak preschoolers into a few productions, it's best to wait until kids are old enough to appreciate the Broadway experience. For younger children and first-time theatergoers, consider the shows at the New Victory Theater.
And now for the details on Broadway Week: Tickets go on sale—Wednesday, August 16 at 10am—and provide two-for-one tickets to Broadway productions for performances taking place from Monday, September 4 to Sunday, September 17. Get answers to the promo's frequently asked questions here so you're all ready when it's time to book.
If you're hoping to score these deals for big-name shows, time is of the essence. Tickets to family favorites such as The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Aladdin, SIX, Wicked, and even Hamilton are all included, but limited. Newer shows are included, too. Of course, there are restrictions and blackout dates, but it's still an excellent deal. To avoid paying exorbitant ticketing fees, go directly to the box office and ask for the promo.
Can't make any of these dates? Broadway Week takes place twice a year—usually January/February and September. So sign up for its email list to keep on top of the next release date.
