Who doesn’t love a good show? As summer comes a close and the days get shorter, it’s time to consider exactly how you will be spending those cool fall nights. Those traveling to New York City around Labor Day will have plenty of options to choose from.

NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, announced that Broadway Week Fall 2013 returns this year to offer theatergoers two-for-one tickets to 20 popular Broadway shows from September 2 through 15.
