20 at 20 (Cheap Off-Broadway)

Theatre is Easy loooooves affordable theatre, and we're excited to tell you about 20 at 20. It's a cheap way to get off-Broadway tickets, but only for 2 weeks. 20 at 20 is a marketing approach by the Off-Broadway Brainstormers to get audiences into off-Broadway shows, and it's a really great way to see quality theatre at discounted prices. This year 26 shows are participating and the 20 at 20 ticket option is only available from February 25 until March 9. Show up at participating theatres 20 minutes before showtime to get a ticket (subject to availability, first come first served) and your ticket is only $ age requirements, but the 20 at 20 website does say restrictions may apply.
