Off Broadway Alliance's 20at20 Returns this Month
The Off Broadway Alliance will again sponsor 20at20, the bi-annual celebration of Off Broadway. The popular promotion, which begins September 9th and continues through September 28th, makes $20 tickets available for 45 Off Broadway plays and musicals twenty minutes prior to curtain. Now in its 8th year, 20at20 has become one of New York's most eagerly anticipated promotions for people who want to see exciting shows at amazing prices.
Peter Breger, Chairman of the non-profit Off Broadway Alliance said: "We are thrilled to be able to offer $20 tickets to many of New York's most popular and exciting Off Broadway shows, including Pageant (the beauty pageant with a twist), 50 Shades The Musical! (the naughty and hilarious parody), Piece of My Heart (the jukebox musical with songs of the great Bert Berns), and many others.
"Just show up twenty minutes before curtain to purchase $20 tickets at the box office for participating shows. Here's your chance to catch up with shows you may have missed, get a sneak peek at the newest hits, or revisit a favorite show - all for just 20 bucks."
Since Off Broadway has every kind and style of show imaginable and since the tickets are only $20, you can check out any number of shows of every genre: long-running hit musicals like Avenue Q and The Fantasticks, amazing and unique events like Fuerza Bruta WAYRA, STOMP, and iLuminate, new musicals like the outrageously satirical Red Eye of Love, and new historical dramas like Olympics Uber Alles, which uncovers an untold story of the 1936 Olympics in Hitler's Berlin. And there is a wide variety of family-friendly shows this year, including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Gazillion Bubble Show, Sleepy Hollow the Musical, The Butterfly Girl, and The Berenstain Bears LIVE! With 20at20, you can see six or seven shows for about the average price of one Broadway ticket.
All 20at20 ticket sales are cash only. For a complete list of participating shows and venues see below or visit www.20at20.com.
20at20 is presented by The Off Broadway Alliance (OBA), a non-profit 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. The Alliance holds monthly meetings and membership is open to everyone in the Off Broadway theater community. Among its initiatives, The Off Broadway Alliance sponsors a free Seminar Series focusing on the culture, business and history of Off Broadway featuring major players from the Off Broadway scene. And the OBA created the Off Broadway Economic Impact Report, which details Off Broadway's over $500 million annual impact on the economy of the City of New York."
