Hi all, I'm just wondering if there has been such a thing in the past.  Here in LA, the Pantages Theater starts offering Black Friday specials for their shows which lasts an entire week, with a different show being sold at a steep discount each day of the week.  So you can essentially purchase the entire season at a discount.

Anyone know if any Broadway shows in the past have offered any kind of a deal or if we might see some this year?

Certain discount websites might have sales. I remember one site ran a BOGO 50 percent off sale a few years ago (might have been Theatre Mania, but can't remember for sure).

When do the Pantages offers start?  I know they usually do 3 shows for $99 on Black Friday.

It's possible.  Last year, Bandstand had a Cyber Monday deal with $45 tickets for preview shows.

Last year, Goldstar did 25% off gift certificates at some point between Thanksgiving and Christmas. You were also allowed to apply the gift certificates to your own account, meaning that if you were willing to pay in advance, you could end up with 25% off a lot of Goldstar ticket purchases throughout the year. I did it last year, and intend to take advantage again this year, if they offer it.

Actually, they've done that the week between Christmas and New Year's usually starting on the 26th or 27th.. It's pretty generous as this is on top of the discounts to each show they already offer so understandably they don't want it cutting into their Thanksgiving and Christmas sales. They've always been 20%. Last year was the first time it was 25% so it will be interesting to see what they do this year. Like you, assuming they offer it again, I'll be stocking up. It's a great deal..

I’m pretty sure I got $25 tickets to The Play That Goes Wrong on Black Friday last year. Can’t beat it!

I agree with others that each show might have a special of its own either on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Make sure to follow them on FB or Instagram or Twitter.

One of the best deals I think come later during Broadway week in late Jan or early Feb where the specials tend to be BOGO free. True, not all the musicals participate but a good number do. That was the only discount I ever saw for Dear Evan Hansen this past year.

Depends on the show. Last year I got Bandstand for $45 and The Play that Goes Wrong for $25.

Keep an eye on social media. I'll update if I come across any.

Not exactly the same, but 54 Below did either a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale last year, with many shows 40% off or more.

The individual shows' social media pages (especially facebook) would be the place to check.

They are doing Cyber Monday this year.  50% off shows January through March.  Big shows are excluded.

School of Rock has a promo code SCBBX817 from Nov 26-Dec 13 and Jan 5-Feb 14. Don’t know if it’s actually cheaper though.

Goldstar is also doing some good discounts, particularly on regional theatre. And for those of us outside NY, I’ve had several of my local (DC) theatres send me good discount offers, so if you’re not on your local/regional theatre’s email list, check their website or social media.

The TodayTix Cyber Monday sale is live now. I thought I would also share a code I found for $13 off any show in NYC on TodayTix. Great way to negate the fees they add on to their advertised prices.Try code CFNYC. It says it is for first time TodayTix purchasers only, but I'm pretty sure I've bought tickets from TodayTix before when I won a lottery through them and I was still able to use it. Maybe they aren't really enforcing that rule.

Wow, I wasn't expecting the TodayTix deals to be as good as they are. I bought a ticket for Dolly. The Sweeney Todd tickets are a STEAL.

Is the Today Tix offer for Once on This Island a good deal? It says rear orchestra tickets for $79 are $61 off, but I thought rear orchestra was normally $69 anyway.
