The Off Broadway Alliance will again sponsor 20at20, the bi-annual celebration of Off Broadway. The popular promotion, which begins January 22nd and continues through February 10th, makes $20 tickets for 40 Off Broadway plays and musicals available to theatre-goers twenty minutes prior to curtain. Now in its 7th year, 20at20 has become one of New York's most eagerly-anticipated promotions for budget-conscious theatre-goers.
Peter Breger, Chairman of the non-profit Off Broadway Alliance said: "We are thrilled to once again offer $20 tickets to many of New York's most popular Off Broadway shows, including three winners of the Off Broadway Alliance Awards: Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking!, SILENCE! The Musical, and NEWSical The Musical.
"Just show up twenty minutes before curtain to purchase available $20 tickets at the box office. Here's your chance to catch up with shows you may have missed, get a sneak peek at the newest hits, or revisit a favorite show - all for just 20 bucks."
Since Off-Broadway has performances to fit everyone's schedule, you can have a terrific all-theatre weekend: leave work early on Friday and catch Zelda at the Oasis in midtown at 5pm, then grab a quick bite and head over to the 20th anniversary revival of All in the Timing at 59e59. Start the day right on Saturday with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe at 11am (bring the kids!), then stroll up a few blocks to catch Avenue Q at 2:30pm, have an early dinner, and go see The Fantasticks at 8pm. Then come back to midtown after brunch on Sunday for the matinee of Cougar, the Musical at 2pm, and head down to Union Square for Fuerza Bruta at 7pm. Where else can you see seven shows in a weekend, for about the average price of ONE BROADWAY TICKET?
All 20at20 ticket sales are cash only. For a complete list of participating shows and venues see below or visit www.20at20.com.
