Get Fall Discounts on Popular Broadway Productions
Anyone who's walked through Times Square in mid-July knows Broadway booms in summertime. So when autumn rolls in and tourists roll out, the Great White Way looks to intrigue fans and fill seats. Here are three big reasons to check out Broadway this fall:
- Big Stars: Many shows bring in new stars to pique fan interest. This fall you can catch Patti LaBelle in "Fela!," Laura Linney and Christina Ricci in "Time Stands Still," Sean Hayes in "Promises, Promises," and Kelsey Grammer in "La Cage Aux Folles."
- New Shows: A couple of exciting new shows are now in previews. For example, "La Bete" starring David Hyde Pierce arrives directly from London's West End. Also look for "Lombardi," the new play about the legendary football coach starring Dan Lauria and Judith Light.
- Discounts: If you still need an extra nudge to take in a show, check out the great discounts to be found this time of year on many Broadway and off-Broadway productions.
Many shows -- including "Rock of Ages" and "9 to 5" -- also kicked off national tours last week. So if you can't make it to New York City, fall is a great time to check out the latest show in your hometown.
