The sun-filled days, the crisp in the air at night, the Caribbean Day parade on Labor Day, the makeover of Lincoln Center for Fashion Week – all signs that fall is fast approaching. With the impeding10th anniversary of 9/11 reminding New Yorkers of how resilient we are and how much we have overcome since that tragic day, Broadway brings discounts center stage.
After the events of September 11, 2001, Broadway as well as other businesses in the theatre district suffered huge losses in sales. In response, Seasons of Savings was created in January 2002 to entice theatergoers to go back to The Great White Way. The special edition Playbill is published twice a year, and is called the unofficial “New York Theatergoer’s Guide to Times Square.”
Seasons of Savings features discount coupons with savings codes for various Broadway and Off-Broadway shows as well as restaurants, hotels and other Big Apple attractions. On August 29, Serino Coyne, Broadway’s largest advertising agency, hosted an event at Tony’s Dinapoli, located at 147 West 43rd Street, to introduce this year’s coupon booklet. Tony’s Dinapoli is a family style restaurant located in the heart of the theatre district. It is famous for its scrumptious Italian cuisine and great relationship with Broadway. This year’s booklet offers discounts to Memphis, Mary Poppins, Godspell, Chinglish, The Adams Family, Catch Me If You Can, Circle Line and more. Seasons of Savings makes Broadway more affordable and provides an opportunity for more people to fall in love with the theatre. Tis the season to save, I encourage all FAMERS to take advantage.
