Broadway is home to some of the highest quality productions in the world — and, unfortunately, also some of the highest ticket prices. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to save money on tickets to the Great White Way. Theatergoers who want to kick off their fall with a Broadway show can take advantage of Broadway Week, which will offer 2-for-1 tickets to top musicals and plays.
Broadway Week, a promotion offered through NYC & Company, will take place this fall from Tuesday, September 3rd through Friday, September 16th. Ticket buyers can purchase 2-for-1 tickets using the code BWAYWK through the promotion, as well as upgrade their tickets for just $30 using code BWAYUP (subject to availability).

Twenty-four Broadway shows will be participating in Broadway Week this September, including both beloved favorites and new tenants on the Great White Way. New Yorkers and visitors alike can take advantage of the promotion to see some of the hottest new Broadway musicals, including recent Tony Award nominees Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, Beetlejuice, and Tootsie. Discover a beloved classic musical in a whole new way with Daniel Fish’s stripped-down revival of Oklahoma!, which took home the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical earlier this year.

Broadway Week will also afford the chance to see some of the most-hyped plays and performers onstage right now. Theatregoers wanting to catch a celebrity in the flesh can see Marvel star Tom Hiddleston perform in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal alongside Charlie Cox and Zawe Ashton, while Jake Gyllenhaal takes on Sea Wall/A Life with actor Tom Sturridge. Harry Potter fans, meanwhile, can take advantage of a rare discount on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as the 2-for-1 Broadway Week promotion allows you to see both parts of the two-part play for the price of one.
Play lovers looking for a new piece to discover will also be spoilt for choice. Succession star Brian Cox will portray President Lyndon B. Johnson in The Great Society, a new companion piece to previous Broadway hit All the Way, while Jeremy O. Harris’s critically-acclaimed Slave Play paints a much different portrait of the American experience and how we confront our own racial history. Over at Studio 54, Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker headlines Adam Rapp’s The Sound Inside, which focuses on an Ivy League professor and the student she reaches out to for help, while Tony Award winner Jonathan Pryce appears a few blocks away in The Height of the Storm, a new play arriving on Broadway after an acclaimed London run. Those wanting a totally different kind of Broadway experience, meanwhile, can head to Derren Brown: Secret, a limited engagement featuring the UK phenomenon’s unique brand of magic.

Of course, Broadway Week also offers the perfect chance to revisit some of Broadway’s beloved classics. The Broadway Week discount can be used for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical Phantom of the Opera and well-established hits like Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Come From Away, and Chicago. Disney fans of all ages can head to Aladdin, Frozen, and The Lion King, and teens and adults alike will enjoy newer hits like Dear Evan Hansen and Mean Girls. While long-running musicals Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Waitress will soon be taking their final Broadway bows, audiences can take advantage of Broadway Week to see these beloved hits one last time in their final weeks.
In addition to Broadway Week, Off-Broadway theatergoers will also soon have a chance to save. NYC & Company will offer an Off-Broadway Week from September 23–October 6, and participating shows will be announced September 9.
