Theater Bus & Encore Theater

Make it to Broadway!

We understand how important Broadway shows are to you, so we make it easy with two programs offering discounted tickets: our Theater Bus program includes transportation, and Encore Theater does not. Both programs help ensure you don’t miss out on the best of Broadway this season.

Details of upcoming and current shows are available below. Secure your space now, tickets go fast!

Theater Bus

Our Theater Bus offers an easy way to catch a show, but also an 8:30am departure gives theater goers extra time in the city. Discounted Broadway theater tickets for Wednesday matinee performances and transportation by private bus are included in the price. The 2013-2014 subscription included three blockbuster performances – Big FishKinky Boots and Beautiful - the Carole King Musical.

Join the first Theater Bus trip of the season to see this hilarious hit – Broadway’s 2014 Tony Award®-winning Best Musical.

Experience the story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to speed up the line of succession using a great deal of charm… and a dash of murder. Tony winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) plays all eight doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. Matching memorable melodies with a witty turn of phrase, A Gentleman’s Guide… has been proclaimed “Best of the Year” by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Time Out New York, The Hollywood Reporter, and more.

Tickets to this show are sold out.

Encore Theater

The Encore Theater program offers discounted tickets to three popular Broadway productions over the fall, winter and spring. This option provides an alternative to the Theater Bus, for those who prefer another form of transport, or who don’t have the morning free. All tickets are for 2:00pm performances. Tickets can be purchased on a show-by-show basis. Although tickets are offered to the public, DCA members are given first priority.
