Some deals are worth the subway ride into Manhattan, and $20 for off-Broadway tickets definitely qualifies (it’s even designed for getting there in the nick of time). Starting Monday, Jan. 25, show up at the box office of one of these plays and shows 20 minutes before curtain, and you’ll be able to buy a $20 ticket.
