The Fall Season is upon us and The Off Broadway Alliance’s ninth annual 20at20 bi-annual promotion gives theaterlovers and families a chance to check out what’s going on off the "main stem," always a place where exciting and innovative theater begins. During 20at20, you can see six or seven of these shows for less than the price of one Broadway ticket. The program runs through October 4 with tickets available to 40 shows 20 minutes prior to showtime in the Theatre District, uptown, midtown, and downtown.

OBA president Peter Breger says, "In New York the magical experience of great live theatre is always available – and the great thing about 20at20 is that it makes that experience affordable."

20at20 presents an opportunity for a night or two out with drinks, dinner, a show, and maybe even a stop after to discuss what you’ve experienced — "and you still go home with change." There’s everything from high drama and comedy to musicals to historical events, that time when the battle of the sexes was heating up, and naught but nice and a nod to a notorious time in the 50s when free speech was challenged.

There are revivals of tried and true material, plays adapted from best-sellers, some that haven’t been seen for years [Cloud Nine, 39 Steps, and Travels with My Aunt], a slew of family entertainment, and some prose from the Bard, The Two Gentleman of Verona — not to mention long-running shows such as Avenue Q [a Tony-winning musical comedy], and that classic musical The Fantasticks.
