New York City (September 15, 2011)—NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, reminds New Yorkers and visitors that Broadway Week starts this Sunday, September 18. Two-for-one tickets for more than 15 Broadway productions are available through September 30 on nycgo.com/broadwayweek. Last year 42 shows opened in Broadway theaters and it was the highest grossing Broadway season on record up 5.9% from the previous year. 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.
“Broadway represents the highest level of theater in the world, attracting millions of visitors and New Yorkers each year,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company. “There is no better time to take advantage of this two-for-one Broadway savings opportunity and experience the excitement of a Broadway production.”
“Fall is the absolute best time to be in New York and the ideal time to see a Broadway show, and this is a fantastic chance to get two great seats for the price of one for most of Broadway’s best,” said stage and screen star Brooke Shields, currently starring as Morticia in The Addams Family through the end of the year.
Broadway Week is produced by NYC & Company in partnership with The Broadway League, AARP, Amtrak, NBC New York and The New York Times. This is the second Broadway Week promotion returning after a successful campaign in January. Shows participating in Broadway Week include popular musicals Wicked, Bette Midler’s Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Sister Act.
