You won’t have to win the lottery to see some of the hottest shows on and off Broadway this month.

NYC Broadway Week, which runs through Sept. 16, allows people to buy 2-for-1 tickets to 24 different productions, including “Frozen” and “Waitress.”

And for 20 days — starting Tuesday — you can get $20 tickets to many Off-Broadway shows as part of the 20at20 program. In order to get the $20 tickets, people should show up at the box office 20 minutes before curtain time and ask for the 20at20 promotion.

Shows participating in 20at20 include “Sistas: The Musical,” “A Spirited History of Drinking” and “Avenue Q.”

The Off Broadway Alliance created 20at20 in an effort to bring new audiences to live theater. It runs Tuesday through Sept. 23.

This is the eighth annual Broadway Week, organized by NYC & Co., and includes five more shows than last year. A few shows are relatively new to The Great White Way, including the Tony Award-nominated “Carousel,” “The Band’s Visit” and “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical.”

“There is truly something for everyone to enjoy on Broadway — from classic favorites to new musicals and plays including family-friendly productions, adaptations, comedies, revivals, and more — with so many choices you can’t go wrong,” Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, said in a statement.
