An annual ticket giveaway called Free Night of Theater has kicked off in New York City.
Nearly 100 theaters will be giving out free tickets to October performances Off Broadway, Off Off Broadway and to independent theaters throughout the city.
The Theatre Communications Group and its partners want to support the arts and introduce new audiences to the city's many stage productions.
Tickets can be purchased on the theater's website a www.freenightnyc.net. The tickets went on sale at 10 a.m., Wednesday, September 29, and last we checked at about 4:30 p.m. there were only two shows still available.
People can sign up for one show only and obtain a maximum of two tickets.
The program receives funding from the city.
