NEW YORK -- The fall iteration of Broadway Week began anew Tuesday for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
That means two-for-one tickets are available for some of the most popular musicals and plays New York City has to offer, CBS2's Christina Fan reported.
Broadway Week is actually much more than a week; this year it will run from Tuesday until Sept. 25.
The following 22 shows are taking part:
- "A Strange Loop"
- "The Book of Mormon"
- "Come From Away"
- "Cost of Living"
- "Dear Evan Hansen"
- "Death of a Salesman"
- "Funny Girl" (Sold out)
- "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child"
- "Into The Woods"
- "The Kite Runner"
- "The Lion King"
- "MJ: The Musical"
- "Moulin Rouge! The Musical"
- "The Phantom of the Opera"
- "The Piano Lesson"
"We also have a lot of shows that are coming to a close, so this is really a great opportunity. ... If you haven't seen a show such as 'Dear Evan Hansen,' this may be your last opportunity," said Tiffany Townsend of NYC & Company.
"It's wonderful. If you come down here with a family of five, at $150 a ticket, you can go broke," one person said.
Broadway Week's kickoff coincided with the long-awaited re-opening of the TKTS booth in Lincoln Center, which had been shuttered since COVID hit in March 2020.
In line, CBS2 found Kate French, who was excited to find discounted prices so close to home.
"It has been so long since I've done this, two years, so I'm thrilled," French said.
Theatergoer Cessie Haber said she spent $179 total for two tickets, adding she was happy with the deal.
Michael Naumann, the managing director of TDF, the nonprofit running TKTS, said increasing demand at the Time Square location meant now is the time to bring back the satellite booth.
"We sell 13,000, 14,000 tickets a week at that location and this is a great way for new Yorkers to buy discounted tickets and 20-50 percent off," Naumann said.
The hours of operation for TKTS Lincoln Center will be Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
