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, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm. Most Broadway shows are “dark” (closed) on Monday nights. Children under the age of 4 are generally not permitted in theaters.

Playbill keeps a great list of weekly Broadway schedules.

Check TKTS to see which shows offered discount tickets last week, as they generally repeat, except on major holidays and peak tourist times.

Broadway Ticket Websites

Most Broadway shows sell their tickets directly through Ticketmaster or Telecharge, (and recently SeatGeek for a few shows) and the ticket seller is determined by the theater. Any other company you see selling tickets is a Reseller, which often has a better selection of seats.
