  Best of Off-Broadway for only $20 from 3/4-3/11/07

Though it's an oft-heard complaint that Broadway tickets regularly reach or surpass the $100 mark, steady theatergoers no doubt also feel the pain of off-Broadway prices, which have moved into, and even beyond, the $60-80 range.

Relief is in sight, however, albeit for only eight days and nights.

From March 4-11, at more than two dozen off-Broadway productions, any seats unsold by 20 minutes to curtain time will be made available to the general public for $20 each. Tickets must be purchased at the box office, can't be reserved or replace previously-purchased seats, and are subject to availability.

Taking its cue from New York's popular Restaurant Weeks, wherein eateries slash their prices to attract new traffic, the "20 at 20" campaign (i.e., "20 bucks. 20 minutes before") was conceived by the Off-Broadway Brainstormers, a consortium of theaters and producers working in association with the League of Off-Broadway Theaters and Producers.

As of Feb. 27, the shows on board for "20 at 20" include: 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother (St. Luke's Theater), A Jew Grows in Brooklyn (37 Arts), A Very Common Procedure (Lucille Lortel Theater), Altar Boyz (New World Stages), The Awesome 80s Prom (Webster Hall), Mayumana's "BE" (Union Square Theater), The Big Voice: God or Merman? (Actors Temple Theater), Bill W. and Dr. Bob (New World Stages), Defender of the Faith (Irish Rep), The Fantasticks (Snapple Theater Center), The Fever (The New Group @ Theatre Row), The Gazillion Bubble Show (New World Stages), Gutenberg! the Musical! (Actors' Playhouse), I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
(Westside Theater Upstairs), Jewtopia (Westside Theatre Downstairs), The Last Word...
(Theater at St Clement's), Mary Rose (Vineyard Theater), My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, & I'm In Therapy (Little Shubert), My Secret Garden (45th St. Theater),
Naked Boys Singing (New World Stages), Perfect Crime (Snapple Theater Center),
Room Service (SoHo Playhouse), Sealed for Freshness
(New World Stages), Some Men
(2econd Stage Theater), Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell (Minetta Lane Theater), Stomp (Orpheum), The Voysey Inheritance (Atlantic Theater).
