Its Back - NY Theater's Answer To Restaurant Week - Buy Tickets For Only $20 Starting 20 Minutes Before Show Time - Tuesday, September 2 Through Sunday, September 14 Only

For two weeks only, Off-Broadway will offer tickets for only $20 starting twenty minutes before show time. 20at20 is now a bi-annual celebration of NY's best shows, in the tradition of Restaurant Week.

Beginning Tuesday, September 2nd and continuing through Sunday, September 14th, Off-Broadway shows will offer seats still available twenty minutes before the curtain for only $20* when purchased at the box office for over twenty shows (cash only at some venues; some restrictions may apply, a complete list follows).

This is your chance to catch up with shows you may have missed, get a sneak peek at the newest hit, or revisit a favorite - all for only $20. And since Off-Broadway has performances to fit everyone's schedule, you can see more than one. On a typical Saturday for example, you can see Gazillion Bubble Show at 11 AM, Altar Boyz at 2PM, Forbidden Broadway at 4PM, My First Time at 7PM, and Stomp at 10:30 PM. Where else can you see five shows in a day, for less than the price of one Broadway ticket?

And where else can you see the next Avenue Q, A Chorus Line, Doubt, In the Heights, Rent, or Spring Awakening - before the prices go 'uptown' - and enjoy these shows in the intimate environment that can only be found Off-Broadway?
