Your guide to TodayTix Presents and Broadway Speakeasy
Seen all there is to see on Broadway? Want to hear Broadway performers sing hits from musicals that aren’t currently running, or non-showtune hits with a theatrical flair? As with all things theatre, TodayTix has you covered. TodayTix doesn’t just sell tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows — we create shows, too (and sell tickets for them). Our TodayTix Presents series includes fully original performances featuring Broadway actors, and you won’t experience anything else like them.
This year, TodayTix is presenting Broadway Speakeasy, a glamorous concert series that will make you feel like you’re in a real 1920s jazz bar despite being in the heart of Times Square. Want to know what to expect from TodayTix Presents events and Broadway Speakeasy? We’ve answered all your questions below.
What is TodayTix Presents?
TodayTix Presents is the division of TodayTix that creates fully original content. TodayTix Presents has produced concert series, streamed shows, and more. If you want a Broadway-esque experience beyond Broadway or want to see a performer in a smaller setting, TodayTix Presents shows provide you a totally unique experience that brings theatre to all types of New York hotspots.
What kinds of TodayTix Presents events are there?
TodayTix Presents events include all kinds of performances for Broadway lovers looking for something different than a regular show. In 2021, TodayTix hosted a series of outdoor summer concerts at the Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park, featuring stars like Lauren Patten, Derek Klena, and Ariana DeBose (before she became an Oscar-winning movie star!).
TodayTix Presents was also the force behind the streamed concert performance of Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical back in 2021. What all TodayTix Presents events have in common is that they let you watch Broadway stars perform in a new, cozy setting. The in-person events often have food and drinks on offer, too!
The latest TodayTix Presents event is the Broadway Speakeasy concert series, which will transport you back to the Roaring Twenties with music and food. Learn more about Broadway Speakeasy below!
What is Broadway Speakeasy?
Broadway Speakeasy is a series of jazz concerts at the luxurious Paradise Club at the Times Square EDITION hotel. Once you arrive in this intimate nightclub, cast in red lighting with a disco ball in the center of the ceiling, you’ll forget you’re in Times Square. Gorgeous murals line the walls around your table or booth, and no matter where you are, you’re mere feet from the stage. There’s no bad seat in the house.
The events are your time machine to the glamorous 1920s, but with a modern twist. Over craft cocktails and delicious food curated by the Michelin-star chef John Fraser, you’ll enjoy a Broadway star and a live band performing new arrangements of classic music.
Songs by Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Etta James, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and more are your gateway to old-fashioned entertainment. In between these songs, too, are jazzy renditions of classic musical theatre songs and contemporary pop hits. Each headliner tailors their own set list based on their style, so no two concerts have the exact same vibe. No matter what, you’ll be getting a lively, classy concert with songs you can’t help but groove along to. Broadway Speakeasy is the perfect place for a fancy date night or a dressy outing with friends.
When is Broadway Speakeasy?
Broadway Speakeasy debuted on Friday, May 13, and concerts take place every Friday and Saturday from there. Each event begins at 8 p.m., but doors open at 7 p.m. to allow audiences extra time to enjoy the lounge and order food and drinks. The concerts run approximately 90 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission, but the Paradise Club transforms into a nightclub afterwards if you don’t want the night to end just yet.
Who will perform at Broadway Speakeasy?
So far, headliners have been announced for the first three weekends. The Voice‘s Dez Duron kicks off the series on May 13 and 14, followed by Anastasia‘s Max von Essen on May 20 and 21 and Wicked‘s Jessica Vosk on May 27 and 28.
This article will be continually updated as additional dates and performers are announced.
Can I bring my kids to Broadway Speakeasy?
No, kids may not attend Broadway Speakeasy. All attendees must be 21 or older to be admitted into the Paradise Club. However, past TodayTix Presents events, like the Tavern on the Green concerts and the Ratatouille stream, were perfectly family-friendly. Keep an eye out for announcements about more events you can bring the family to!
How much are Broadway Speakeasy tickets?
Broadway Speakeasy tickets range from $59 to $115, depending on where you choose to sit. There are a range of seating options at different price points, with bar seats being the lowest-priced and VIP booths being the highest. There are also $39 Rush tickets available each performance day, which you can unlock on the TodayTix app ahead of time.
When you buy Broadway Speakeasy tickets on TodayTix, you get to look at a seating chart and pick your exact seat, so you know exactly what type of seat you’re getting and how close it is to the stage. The Paradise Club is an intimate venue, though, with only 130 seats, which means every seat puts you right up close to the performers. But that also means you should get your tickets quickly before they sell out!
How do I get Broadway Speakeasy tickets?
You can get Broadway Speakeasy tickets exclusively on TodayTix — this is a TodayTix Presents series, after all! Tickets are available on both the TodayTix app, which you can download on iOS and Android devices, or on TodayTix.com. Search “Broadway Speakeasy,” and tickets are just a few clicks away from there.
