At 10 a.m. today, the city's tourism arm, NYC & Company, is offering 2-for-1 tickets to various Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, as part of its Broadway Week, which runs September 18 to 30, and Off-Broadway week (September 26 to October 9). The Broadway shows include long-running stalwarts like Chicago, The Lion King, Wicked, Jersey Boys and Billy Elliot, plus newcomers like Memphis and the upcoming The Mountaintop, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett. On the Off-Broadway side, the participating shows include Avenue Q, Stomp, Love, Loss and What I Wore, and Naked Boys Singing! A list of shows is below:

NYC & Company CEO George Feritta said, "Manhattan’s intimate Off-Broadway theaters are offering significant value this fall with two-for-one tickets for more than 25 shows," and, "With two-for-one tickets to some of the City’s most popular shows there is no better time to experience New York City theater and take advantage of the robust Broadway savings." Arts Beat points out, "The offer was generated to boost sales during the period after heavy tourist season ends but before the new season ramps up, when Broadway has been known to hit a slump," and many shows need a little extra help, after Irene caused a big dent to their box offices.
