“Broadway theaters are offering tremendous value this fall with 2-for-1 tickets to nearly 20 world-class Broadway shows,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company. “Broadway Week helps draw visitors to New York City and gives fans a reason to fill our theaters. We encourage both visitors and New Yorkers to take advantage of this savings opportunity and experience some of the world’s best entertainment.”
“The only thing better than seeing a Broadway show is the opportunity for two people to see a Broadway show for the price of one,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League. “Thanks to the vision of NYC & Company and their Restaurant Week franchise, the first few Broadway Weeks have proved so successful that we’re thrilled to be in a position to offer this exciting opportunity again to benefit even more theater fans this September.”
Broadway Week is produced by NYC & Company in partnership with The Broadway League, AARP, Amtrak, NBC 4 New York and The New York Times.
