NYC Insider Tip – Matinée or Evening Show?

NYC Broadway show evening performances start at 8pm and shows usually run 2.5-3 hours, so prepare to eat dinner either at 6:00 pm or 11:00 pm. Consider your day plans before you commit to a show time.

A matinée may just be the ideal time (it’s my favorite), especially for kids. You may find it preferable to make the most of your morning and take in the sights, enjoy a leisurely lunch or picnic in Central Park, be in the show from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm and get out in time for a cocktail, or to head back to your room to relax and shower before heading out for an amazing night on the town!


New York Broadway Shows – Schedules

For evening performances, New York Broadway Show tickets, on average, run $65-$125 for regular seating and $300 for premium seating. Sometimes a Matinée is less expensive and they are usually performed on Wednesday and Sunday at 2:00pm. Many Broadway shows are “dark” (closed) on Monday nights. Children under the age of 4 are generally not permitted in theaters.

Broadway Ticket Websites

Broadway shows sell their tickets directly through Ticketmaster or Telecharge, depending on the show. However, seats are not always available and their sites often don’t offer a lot of show information.

A very detailed site with all New York Broadway Shows and Off Broadway Shows is Broadway.com. They offer tons of reviews, show times, tickets, details, audience types and lots more.
