Escape to New York | As new time slots proliferate, you can pack more shows in to a Gotham theatre blitz

New York theatres are offering more and more chances to see their shows these days. With Sunday and Monday night now fully established and two or even three shows possible on weekend days, theatre addicts can pack more and more in to their NYC stay. Which is great, because once you’re there you may as well see as much as you can.

I’m headed that way tomorrow to catch up on the latest. Here’s the target list.
