New York City (January 3, 2012)—NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, The Off-Broadway League and media partner Time Out New York, remind New Yorkers and visitors that Off-Broadway Week two-for-one tickets are on sale tomorrow, January 4, for shows from January 30 to February 12. Thirty-eight shows are participating in the winter promotion. For a list of shows and to purchase Off-Broadway Week tickets, visit nycgo.com/offbroadwayweek tomorrow. Off-Broadway Week is part of the Get More NYC campaign and was created to celebrate New York City theater, boost ticket sales during typically slower travel periods of January and February and to provide unprecedented theater savings for New Yorkers and visitors alike. 

“This winter, Off-Broadway Week will offer visitors and New Yorkers an affordable way to experience some of the City’s best theater with two-for-one tickets to 38 Off-Broadway shows—more than ever before,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company. “Off-Broadway Week gives us a forum to showcase the depth of talent found in these unique shows across Manhattan at a discounted price.”   

Off-Broadway theaters, which contain 100 to 499 seats, are located throughout Manhattan, offering an intimate setting for guests. Long-running shows such as Avenue Q, Blue Man Group, Fuerza Bruta: Look Up and Stomp join limited-engagement productions such as Carrie, Galileo and Look Back in Anger for the winter promotion.

“On behalf of The Off-Broadway League, we are excited to partner with NYC & Company on the fifth iteration of the program to offer New Yorkers and visitors more value this winter through the Off-Broadway Week two-for-one ticket promotion,” said George Forbes, president of The Off-Broadway League. “The Off-Broadway theater community encourages everyone to take advantage of this tremendous offer and to experience the excitement of an Off-Broadway show.”
