#StellaBlizzard – Cancellations and #SnowDay Discounts

As of 2:30 pm, all Broadway shows are going on tonight as scheduled, but several Off-Broadway theaters are canceling their performances because of the blizzard theatrically named Stella. For answers to basic questions, such as what if I can’t make it? —  click on Broadway and Blizzards: Questions and Answers.

Below is information, many via Tweets from @NewYorkTheater, about cancellations and discounts.

The blizzard that attacked New York City on Saturday, deposited 26.8 inches of snow in Central Park, making it the city’s second-largest blizzard since 1869. But that’s all history now, as both bus and subway service has been restored and, as the Broadway League announced this morning, all Broadway shows will go on Sunday, January 24, 2016 as planned.

As incentive to theatergoers to brave the elements, will shows be offering special Snow Day discounts? They might not be offering anything specifically connected to the snow. But many shows are available at the TKTS ticket booths at half price. Here’s what was available this morning for the Sunday matinee:


And some shows are also touting the regular Broadway Week two-for-one ticket deal, which has been extended through February 7.


Look at individual shows’ Twitter feeds to see if they are offering specific #SnowDay discounts for even cheaper tickets. If I see any, I’ll add them here.

There’s at least one opportunity for cheaper tickets that the storm has temporarily taken away:
