January is truly one of my favorite times in NYC. The tourists have all cleared out and everything is on sale, even tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. Winter brings four major theater ticket promotions that save you a lot more than the usual discount sites. Broadway Week, Kids' Night on Broadway and Off-Broadway Week all offer two-for-one ticket deals to a slew of hit family shows (yes, even The Lion King). Plus, the more under the radar 20at20 lets you snag $20 seats to a bunch of Off-Broadway productions, including the interactive Fuerza Bruta: Wayra, which is great for tweens.
We've got the scoop on how to take advantage of these various deals, along with our picks for the best shows to see with school-age kids, both on Broadway and off.
