Heading to New York City to enjoy this holiday season? Interested in getting discount tickets to see a Broadway or Off-Broadway show? Many of you may be aware of the TKTS discount ticket booth with the main location at 47th and Broadway. They offer great discounts on tickets, but you have to be willing to wait in line and the waiting times may be long. Here is the link for more information. TKTS
Another way to get discount tickets to both plays and musicals in NYC is to go on-line before you leave for NYC and print discount vouchers to take to the box office of the particular show you want to see. Check these discount vouchers carefully to make sure the discount is offered for the date and time you plan to see the show. The tickets usually cost a few dollars more per ticket than TKTS, but if you go to the box office when it opens, the lines are usually short. I suggest you bring vouchers for several shows in case one does not have desirable seats for the show you want to see.
Other discounts called rush, student rush, lottery and standing room tickets are also offered for many shows. Below are links to two great articles from playbill.com about how to get great discounts for shows in New York.
Wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!
