See an Off-Broadway Show for $20

Head up to Broadway this month. You can see an off-Broadway show for $20 now through September 28. How does it work? Arrive at the theater 20 minutes before show time at these select shows, and you’ll have the option to purchase tickets for $20. I’ve tried this promotion before and in definitely works, but keep in mind though you may want to pick a show that has a couple theaters nearby just so you can have a back-up plan should your show get sold out, and I recommend trying week nights before weekends.  Also, you might want to call ahead to confirm the show isn’t sold out. My pick? Go see Avenue Q if you haven’t already or Awesome 80s Prom if you want an interactive show experience.
