Freebie Friday: Two-for-the-Price-of-One Off-Broadway Shows in New York City
January and February are traditionally the months in New York City when a lot of shows close. Blame it on the frigid temperatures here; they dissuade a lot of would-be audience members from showing up.

But this winter, Off-Broadway producers have come up with a clever way to battle the weather: two-for-one discounts and free drinks. As for this posting, 18 off-Broadway productions will be taking part in the offer, which goes from Jan 24 through Feb 13. They include such long-running favorites as Stomp, Avenue Q, The Fantasticks, Fuerza Bruta and Naked Boys Singing. Among the newer offerings are Nora Ephron's "Love, Loss and What I Wore" and the children's show by movie star Julianne Moore "Freckle Face Strawberry". Patrons receive a coupon for two-for-one cocktails at bars and lounges near the theaters.
There's no sell-by date on the special, but one of the shows is already being listed as sold-out, so move quickly. Click here for full details.
