When you’re trying to figure out what to do this weekend, why not check out your broadway options! Attending theater for any always have to be expensive and it can end up being last minute you just have to know where to look.
The cancelations line is one of the best ways to see the show. You can see a show for a very inexpensive rate if you can put in the time to wait in line. Get in line before the show starts and hang out right up to the start of the show. Any tickets that were not claim/ canceled will be sold for a lesser rate.
Standing Room Only:
Standing room only is actually done the same way. Wait in line prior to the show opening and the theater will try to get as many people as they can to see the show for a small price. Not all shows offer this so make sure you check before going.
Lottery tickets can happen two ways. Either they can be done digitally or done outside the theater. This is usually done much earlier in the day if it is done at the theater. You enter your name and in about 30 minutes they choose the winners. Each day has a different amount. Some shows offer digital lotteries as well that you can enter online and you would receive an email if you win.
The TKTS stand is located in the heart of Times Square. Those red stairs that you are always seeing, right below that is the TKTS stand. This is another great way to get tickets the day of the show because they are able to sell them for a discounted price. Once again, you will have to wait in line, but what is a little bit of time to get something you will enjoy. Their opening times differ depending on what day of the week it is, so make sure you check before you head over.
Broadway for Broke People:
This website is my favorite. It puts all of the different ways for that show you are looking to attend in one area. The website also gives you information on the shows with closing date information and all of their scheduled performances. If you go to www.broadwayforbrokepeople.com you can find all of your ticket needs.
These aren’t the only ways to enjoy the theater. Heading straight over to the box office can also sometimes provide the best ticket prices, you may just have to wait for the show rather than going immediately. AS always, websites like TicketMaster, and StubHub are always options.
Enjoy the show and have a great weekend!
