Broadway (And Off) On A Budget

Summer is almost over (sob), but on the plus side, as the tourists leave the city, the theater discounts start piling up. Here are some deals to be on the lookout for:

Today is the release of the 22nd Season of Savings booklet, which was created in response to the effect September 11 had on Broadway ticket sales and is released twice per year. It features discounts to Broadway and off-Broadway shows.

Broadway Week's 2-for-1 tickets also go on sale today for performances from September 4 to 16. And during off-Broadway's 20 at 20, from September 4 to 23, you can get $20 tickets for select shows 20 minutes before curtain.

For those who prefer free theater tickets, Season of Savings is also running a contest on Facebook. At the end of each week in September, a winner will be chosen at random to receive tickets to a show and dinner for 2 at Tony's Di Napoli. The grand prize winner will receive the "ultimate theater weekend," which includes tickets to 3 shows, dinner at Tony's Di Napoli, hotel accommodations, and a Broadway gift bag. You can enter the contest here.
