Broadway and Off-Broadway Week

The NYC Theater District in Times Square.It’s official, starting on January 22nd it’s Broadway Week in NYC! This event runs until February 7th and offers visitors to the Big Apple the chance treat themselves to special 2-for-1 tickets to the city’s hottest Broadway shows.

Guests of our boutique hotel The MAve will be well suited to take advantage of this Broadway special as the NYC Theater District is only a few minutes away in Midtown Manhattan.

Popular shows on sale at the moment include Annie, Chicago, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia!, and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. Jersey Boys and Mamma Mia! are perennial favorites with out-of-town visitors looking for traditional Broadway fare, while Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is a little different from usual, as it’s a musical based on a comic book, and will likely appeal to contemporary theatergoers or families with teenagers.

Of course New York’s vibrant theater scene isn’t limited to only Broadway, as there is also an extensive array of Off-Broadway offerings elsewhere in the city. It’s fortuitous then that the city’s Off-Broadway Week begins on January 28th and runs until February 10th!

The Off-Broadway offerings are almost too many to go into much detail here, but suffice it to say that the shows often take more creative risks than their on-Broadway counterparts, as they don’t have as much pressure to be commercial successes. Often more affordable than Broadway shows, the Off-Broadway performances can vary a great deal in genre and visitors should be able to find a show that suits their tastes.

One popular Off-Broadway show is Perfect Crime, which is a suspenseful thriller—think CSI—that has been running continuously since 1987.
