How to Get Reduced Price Broadway Tickets

For New York tourists, Broadway is one of the most important stops. But that doesn’t mean that they have to spend an arm and a leg to get tickets. In fact, getting Broadway tickets at a discount is easier than one might think. Many people wonder just how much they can save by purchasing Broadway discount tickets, and the answer is surprising. The average Broadway ticket runs around 100 dollars, but if they are purchased at a TKTS Booth, customers typically save 25 to 50 percent off full-price, meaning the total cost will be about 50 to 75 dollars per ticket.

Here are a few helpful pointers to get tickets at a reasonable price:

How to Get Broadway Discount Tickets Before Coming to New York City?

One of the best ways to acquire discount Broadway tickets is to check out Broadway discount ticket newsletters and websites. Companies like these often offer discounts on advance sales for many Broadway shows; however, keep in mind that it is difficult to find discounted tickets to some shows because of their popularity.

Customers can also find discounts on the websites for Broadway shows that they are interested in seeing. These sites often have special offers available. Here are a few of them:

How to Get Same-Day Broadway Discount Tickets

There are three convenient TKTS locations in New York. One of those locations is in Brooklyn at the corner of Jay Street and Myrtle Street Promenade. This location offers discount tickets for same-day evening and next day matinee performances. There are two more TKTS Booths in Manhattan. One is located at 199 Water Street and the other is located in Times Square Center.

Senior and Student Discounts

Seniors and students with identification are eligible to receive discounts by buying Rush tickets. These tickets are normally sold when the box office opens or a couple of hours before the beginning of the production and normally cost around 25 to 35 dollars each. Be sure to bring enough money because box offices will only take cash for these tickets most of the time.
