Thursday Matinees On Broadway

Most Broadway matinees in NYC are scheduled on Wednesdays and weekends, but check dates during Spring Break, Christmas and other holiday periods for Thursday afternoon shows. Thursday Broadway matinees are more common during school breaks, making them the perfect time to introduce your little ones to the magic of live entertainment at some of the best Broadway shows for kids.

If you’re child-free and heading to NYC for a long weekend with friends, family, or your partner, this is a great day to start your visit with an iconic Big Apple experience by booking a ticket for one of the biggest new shows. Tickets to MJ the Musical, A Beautiful Noise and Prayer for the French Republic are currently available on selected Thursdays and often cost less than Saturdays and Sunday Broadway matinees.
