20at20 Will Offer $20 Dollar Tickets to Off-Broadway Shows at 20 Minutes to Curtain
Dates and participating shows have been announced.
The Off Broadway Alliance has announced that 20at20, its semiannual ticket promotion, will return January 23-February 11. The program makes $20 tickets available to most off-Broadway shows 20 minutes prior to curtain for 20 days.
20at20 is presented by the Off Broadway Alliance, a nonprofit corporation organized by theater professionals dedicated to supporting, promoting, and encouraging the production of off-Broadway theater and to making live theater increasingly accessible to new and diverse audiences. According to press materials, to take advantage of 20at20, "just show up twenty minutes before curtain to purchase $20 tickets at the box office for participating productions."
Peter Breger, president of the Off Broadway Alliance, said in a statement: "What can you do in New York for 20 bucks? You can see a movie, have a drink at a bar, bowl a few games, or just stay home and order some Chinese food. Or you can do something that's available only in New York — you can go see amazing actors on stage in exciting new shows by the best new playwrights and composers, with great seats in an intimate Off Broadway theater. And for 20 bucks each, you may as well see two or three — or more!"
