New York City (January 22, 2013) — NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, announced Broadway Week starts today with two-for-one tickets for 19 of New York City’s most popular participating Broadway shows through February 7. Broadway Week was created to celebrate New York City arts and entertainment as well as provide unprecedented theater savings for New Yorkers and visitors alike. To book Broadway Week tickets visit nycgo.com/broadwayweek.
“Broadway theaters and shows are important cornerstones of New York City’s arts and entertainment scene,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company. “With two-for-one tickets to some of the City’s most popular productions, there is no better time than Broadway Week to experience New York City theater and take advantage of robust Broadway savings.”
“The only thing better than one Broadway ticket is two Broadway tickets,” says Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League. “Thanks to our official promotion with NYC & Company, Broadway Week makes it easy to see a hot show during a cold winter.”
This is the fifth iteration of Broadway Week, which is returning after a successful campaign in September. New participating Broadway Week shows Annie, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Picnic join long-running shows such as Chicago and The Lion King for the winter two-for-one ticket promotion.
Broadway Week is produced by NYC & Company in partnership with The Broadway League, AARP, Amtrak, NBC 4 New York, The New York Times and new Official Partners American Express and Norwegian Cruise Line.
As part of the winter Broadway Week promotion, Norwegian Cruise Line is offering theater enthusiasts the opportunity to win a trip for two on the May 12 maiden voyage of their newest ship, Norwegian Breakaway, the ship that brings the best of NYC to sea, along with a one night hotel stay, two tickets to a Broadway show and dinner at a Geoffrey Zakarian restaurant the night before departure.
