You wouldn’t know it by the 60-degree weather, but the holidays are upon us, bringing tons of visitors to NYC. And while it may not be a white Christmas, the crowds are all here, looking for things to see and do.
But seasoned New Yorkers all know that the crowds dissipate in January, leaving incredible opportunities to catch a show or fabulous cultural event—without getting elbowed in the ribs! Broadway shows often have more ticket inventory available for group buyers, and there are tons of special events and productions for locals and visitors.
Nowhere is the winter better than at Lincoln Center, with an amazing array of theatre, concerts, opera, and more this January and February.
If you’re into musical theatre, you absolutely cannot miss Lincoln Center Theater’s landmark, Tony®-winning production of The King and I, starring Kelli O’Hara and an incredible company. Featuring a score of treasured songs including “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance,” this sumptuous production is dazzling audiences at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
For those of you who are looking for an amazing, exclusive concert experience, be sure to check out Lincoln Center’s American Songbook—with its outstanding artists, intimate settings, and unforgettable evenings.
