5 Reasons To Purchase Matinee Tickets on Broadway

Dec 4, 2023

Matinee tickets are often overlooked in favor of evening performances, but there are many reasons why they are a great option. Here are 5 reasons to purchase matinee tickets:


  1. Avoid crowds. Matinee performances are generally less crowded than evening performances. This means that you will have more space to move around and you will be less likely to have to wait in line for the restroom or concessions.


  1. Enjoy a leisurely experience. Matinee performances give you more time to relax and enjoy yourself before the show starts. You can have a nice lunch or dinner, or simply take some time to stroll around the theater lobby.


  1. Take the kids. Matinee performances are a great way to introduce children to the theater. The shorter shows are more kid-friendly, and the earlier start time means that you can avoid late bedtimes.


  1. Support the arts. Matinee performances are important for the financial health of theaters. By purchasing matinee tickets, you are helping to ensure that your favorite theaters can continue to produce high-quality performances.


  1. Beat the heat or cold. If you live in a climate with extreme weather, matinee performances are a great way to avoid the heat or cold. You can enjoy the show in the comfort of a climate-controlled theater.


BONUS: See more shows. Some Broadway show schedules will allow you to see more 2-3 shows in one day due to their curtain times! 


Matinee tickets are a great option for anyone who wants to save money, avoid crowds, and enjoy a more leisurely theater experience. So next time you are looking for something to do, consider checking out a matinee performance.


Harmony: A New Musical now has 4 matinee performances every week – Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday!
