Evening shows are perfect for those who work during the day or are looking for a fun night out, but afternoon matinees are just as special. Seeing a Broadway matinee is a great day-off activity, and matinees are the perfect performances for young children to attend. Those taking day trips to New York can also travel in, catch a matinee show, and travel out again before it gets too late.

Luckily, every Broadway show has matinee options, but not all matinee performances take place on the same days, or start at the same time. Here's our guide to matinee performances at all Broadway shows. Once you've found a showtime that works with your schedule, get Broadway tickets now.
