I'm not sure whats on there at the mo, I just know that I want to go and see a show on Broadway - I'm gonna take a look later and see what I can find.


If you do that just wait until you are in NYC and go to Times Square to theTKTS Discount Booths. TKTS Discount Booths offer tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals and plays at up to 50% off ON THE SAME DAY!!!!

Thanks for the info - too late for me though as I booked a show last night.

Ha! I need one too!
I found this one, it tells you where you can get super discounts on the tickets if you don't really care which one you see.

What are you thinking of seeing? I'm thinking about Avenue Q


We're going to see Chicago - really looking forward to it. IPB Image

Zohar, can you usually get tickets to a specific play (such as Avenue Q), do you know? Or is it mostly a crapshoot?

It's a carpshoot, whatever is available.
That's why if there is a specific show you want to see you need to get there early.

Hm, and then, theoretically, if they don't have it, you can usually get regular price at the box office right?

Yeah I guess in theory you could just go to the theatre and buy tickets, we've done that in London before when we were walking past a theatre and realised a show was going to start in 20 minutes.

We'd made our minds up on which show in New York we definitely wanted to see and also wanted specific seats, so I booked.

That reminds me, when I was looking I didn't realise the seating areas were named differently - in the UK - The Orchestra is literally where the Orchestra sit and play!! I was quite confused at first and thought - blimey thats a large area for the Orchestra laugh.gif

Our seating areas are called Stalls = America Orchestra, Circle = America Front Mezzanine and Upper Circle = America Rear Mezzanine.
