NYC Off-Broadway Week is back! From February 27 through March 12, get 2-for-1 tickets to some of the biggest Off-Broadway shows in town! Score great seats for less (using code OBWW2017) at more than 40 shows including:

“Not That Jewish” (New World Stages in Hell’s Kitchen): Monica Piper’s one-woman show about her life in a show business family from the Bronx is as inspiring as it is hilarious. Piper wrote for such hit TV shows as “Roseanne,” “Mad About You” and “Rugrats.” (Performance, comedy, not suitable for younger children)

“Black Angels Over Tuskegee” (St. Luke’s Theatre in Hell’s Kitchen): This award-winning production explores not only the historical significance of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, but delves into the more intimate aspects of their everyday lives and the challenges these brave men faced because of racism. (Play, drama, not suitable for younger children) 

“Avenue Q” (New World Stages in Hell’s Kitchen): This raunchy, but heartfelt, musical comedy about relationships, unemployment, self-esteem and other adult topics has been delighting audiences for over a decade. Yes, there are puppets, but this definitely isn’t “Sesame Street.” (Musical, comedy, for mature teens and adults)

“Spamilton” (The Triad on the Upper West Side): From Gerard Alessandrini, the man behind “Forbidden Broadway,” this musical parody not only spoofs the smash hit “Hamilton,” but lampoons other theatrical classics as well. (Musical, comedy, not suitable for younger children)

“Cagney” (Westside Theatre Upstairs in Hell’s Kitchen): Robert Creighton leads a talented ensemble of tap dancers in his tour de force turn as the title character. This lively musical showcases James Cagney’s evolution from vaudeville performer to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. (Musical, drama, not suitable for younger children)

“Drunk Shakespeare” (The Lounge in the Theater District): A troupe of skilled Shakespearean actors perform some of the Bard’s best works—except that one of the actors has had at least five shots of whiskey. (Play, comedy, 21+ only)

“Church & State” (New World Stages in Hell’s Kitchen): This play parodies politics, faith, gun control and more. Though this play was inspired by recent shooting tragedies like Newtown and Virginia Tech, it has ample humor and heart. (Play, comedy, not suitable for younger children)

“The Little Mermaid” (The Players Theatre in Greenwich Village): This musical remains faithful to the Hans Christian Andersen story where a mermaid falls for a prince. Puppets are used to take audiences under the sea, enchanting children and adults alike. (Musical, drama, for all ages) 

“Stomp” (Orpheum Theatre in the East Village): A fan-favorite since 1994, this group of dancers create their own percussive beats with everything from trash cans to brooms to their own bodies. (Musical, performance, for all ages)

“If I Forget” (Laura Pels Theatre in Midtown West): From Steven Levenson, the writer who did the book for “Dear Evan Hansen,” comes a new play about three generations of a Jewish family dealing with politics, religion and secrets. Though set in the early 2000s, this witty, poignant production feels timely to what is going on in the world today. (Play, drama/comedy, for teens and adults).
