After a pandemic-induced hiatus, Broadway Week, the theater industry's big BOGO promo returns. So, set a calendar alert to grab these discounted tickets to Broadway shows because Broadway Week ticket sales launch Tuesday, August 16.

The discounted ticket promo includes some of our favorite family-friendly Broadway shows like The Lion King, Wicked, and more. Read on for all the details.

Before splurging on tickets to a Broadway show, keep in mind that the official age minimum for all 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 the discounted Broadway tickets deal: Broadway Week tickets go on sale today—Tuesday, August 16—and provide two-for-one tickets to several productions for performances taking place from Tuesday, September 6-Sunday, September 25. Get answers to the promo's frequent 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 like The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Aladdin, SIX and Wicked are all included, but limited. Newer shows like Into the Woods, Beetlejuice, and MJ the Musical are all featured this go-round, too. Of course, there are restrictions and blackout dates, but it's still an excellent deal. To avoid paying exorbitant ticketing fees, you can 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 August/September. So sign up for its email list to keep on top of the next release date.
