Broadway shows for kids and adults are outrageously expensive. They just are. It’s sad, because I know so many people who work in that industry and I want to give them my money, but as far as I can tell the extra money we’re paying for tickets these days doesn’t go to those people—the people actually working on stage and behind the scenes to put the shows on each time. It probably goes to the producers. So I’m always looking for ways to save money on tickets.
Kids Night on Broadway is an annual event that lets you bring kids (18 or younger, one kid per full-price adult ticket) to a performance for free. And these are not sad shows that nobody wants to see (OK, there are a couple of those on the list, but we call them “classics.”) This year’s list includes great shows like Dear Evan Hansen, A Bronx Tale, Waitress, School of Rock, and many, many more.
The next KNOB is Tuesday, February 28th, 2017. Times vary from show to show. Yes, it’s a school night, but many of the shows start at 7pm now, so it’s doable.Get your free kids' tickets for Kids' Night On Broadway 2017! #KNOB Click To Tweet
How Kids Night On Broadway Works
-Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10:30am. Use the links on the KNOB site starting then to access the sale tickets.
-Tickets are sold in pairs, and each will print out at half price (one full-price ticket for the adult, one free ticket for the kid).
-Make sure when buying your tickets that the discount is showing up, because not all seats for a performance are eligible for the KNOB discount. If you accidentally buy your tickets at full price, you’re not going to get a refund to do it over.
-The child tickets MUST be used by kids 18 or under. Don’t be a jerk and try to sneak in your spouse on a kid ticket (unless your spouse is 18 or under, then have fun, you crazy kids!).
-Your KNOB tickets will also entitle you to discounts at certain Times Square restaurants and parking lots.
Outside of NYC?
If you live outside of the NYC area or can’t be here for KNOB, you might still be in luck: there are other KNOB events in other cities!
So good luck, set an alarm for tomorrow at 10:30am Eastern, and maybe I’ll see you at a show!
