Off Broadway Alliance Kicks Off '20at20' Deal For 48 Shows Today

The Off Broadway Alliance will again sponsor 20at20, the bi-annual celebration of Off Broadway. The popular promotion, which begins today, January 21st and continues through February 9th, makes $20 tickets available for 48 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 budget-conscious theatre-goers.

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 Disaster!, Handle With Care, CSC's A Man's A Man 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 performances to fit everyone's schedule, you can have a terrific all-theatre weekend: grab a bite after work on Friday and catch Avenue Q in midtown at 8:00pm. Start the day right on Saturday with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe at 11am (bring the kids!), then stroll up a few blocks to catch Murder For Two at 2pm, have an early dinner, and go see The Fantasticks at 8pm. Then come back to midtown after brunch on Sunday for the matinee of The Chocolate Show! A Tasty New Musical at 3pm, and head up to New World Stages for iLuminate: Artist of Light at 7pm. Where else can you see six shows in a weekend, 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
