"Our 12-year partnership with NYC & Company on NYC Off-Broadway Week continues to attract new audiences to Off-Broadway who may not have otherwise considered the off-the-beaten-path destination, the variety of cool shows on stage or the opportunity to see a production before its mainstream success," said Terry Byrne, president of The Off-Broadway League.
"In an age where we value experiences over things, we are pleased to continue our sponsorship of NYC Off-Broadway Week. By providing an accessible means for Mastercard cardholders to experience the cutting edge of NYC's dynamic performing arts scene, people can share their passion for the arts with those that matter most to them," said Cheryl Guerin, executive vice president of North America Marketing & Communications at Mastercard.
This season, visitors to nycgo.com/off-broadway-week will find useful tools such as a filter to sort productions by: Location, Kid-Friendly, Musical, Play and Performance. Indecisive browsers can also save shows of interest, to then book upon further consideration (although some shows do sell out).
Since its launch in 2009, the program has generated over $3.8 million in revenue through sales and over 105,000 tickets have been sold.
