DESPERATE MEASURES, JERSEY BOYS, and More Participate in 20at20

The Off Broadway Alliance has announced that its hugely popular semi-annual ticket promotion 20at20 ( will return from September 4 to September 23, 2018. 20at20 makes $20 tickets available to most off Broadway shows 20 minutes prior to curtain for 20 days.

Now in its 12th year, 20at20 has become one of New York's most eagerly anticipated promotions for people who want to see exciting shows at steeply discounted prices, making live, up-close-and-personal, up-to-the-minute, and classical theater accessible to everyone for about the price of a pizza.

Peter Breger, President of the Off Broadway Alliance, said "In today's New York - the land of skyrocketing rents and $12 cocktails - there's not a lot you can do for just $20. 20at20 gives audiences the chance to see amazing live theatre for about the same price as a movie ticket, and unlike the movies, we haven't raised our prices in 12 years. It's a great way to check out the incredible things happening Off Broadway, and I hope it encourages everyone to get out of their comfort zones and take a chance on a show they wouldn't have seen otherwise."

During 20at20, you can see six or seven of these shows for less than the price of one Broadway ticket. Just show up twenty minutes before curtain to purchase $20 tickets at the box office for participating productions. Here's your chance to catch up on shows you may have missed, get a sneak peek of the newest hits, or revisit a favorite show - all for just 20 bucks.

20at20 has options for everyone:

For something that both parents and children will enjoy, there are shows like STOMP, Gazillion Bubble Show, PUFFS Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic, Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders and more!

Adults looking for a memorable night out will enjoy shows like Jersey Boys, Avenue Q, Smokey Joe's Café, Desperate Measures, Drunk Shakespeare, ... and The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking.

For people interested in politics can check out the long-running hit Newsical. Plus, new musicals like Neurosis the Musical and R.R.R.E.D. A Secret Musical and rare classics like Tennessee Williams's A Lovely Sunday For Creve Coeur and many more.

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.
