“What better way to start the new year than to see a Broadway show? This winter, NYC Broadway Week is the perfect opportunity to experience the world’s best theater with 2-for-1 tickets. There are a wonderful variety of shows for visitors to choose from and thanks to the return of NYC Winter Outing, it’s easy to pair dinner with a show and more,” said Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League. “We’re pleased that our long-standing partner NYC & Company continues to dream up innovative ways to welcome more audiences to the theater.”
“Mastercard is proud to again sponsor NYC Winter Outing and, of course, NYC Broadway Week,” said Cheryl Guerin, executive vice president of North America Marketing & Communications at Mastercard. “In its 10 years, NYC Broadway Week has benefited countless cardholders by creating the priceless experience of seeing the theater at a 2-for-1 value.”
Booking a Broadway show will again be a user-friendly experience, thanks to the return of filters that allow users to search by “2019 Tony Award® Winners,” “Kid-Friendly,” “Musical,” “Play” and “Solo Performance.” The process of determining top shows of interest out of 21 participants will be supported by a winter/spring theater guide (original content on NYCgo.com).
