December 31st, 2018 | Sports & Entertainment
Theater-goers, take heed! January in New York City means one thing: Broadway Week. From January 21 to February 10, 2019, many Broadway shows will be selling 2-for-1 tickets. This is an ideal opportunity to start the year reliving good ol’ classics like The Phantom of The Opera or see the latest hits, like Waitress or Mean Girls. However, if you want to expand your list of “seen shows,” why not purchase tickets to these superb but slightly less popular shows?

It follows the story of a peasant girl who falls in love with a rich boy from the other side of the island… And the inevitable cultural clash occurs!
