As our granddaughters finish up the last of their finals, we have been pondering what fun things to do with them this summer. Of course, we’d love to take them to as many plays/musicals as we can, however, as we’ve mentioned in previous articles—the ticket prices have skyrocketed!
Just the other day, we were looking at tickets for us, our daughter, and granddaughters and the total price was $680!
For that price, the five of us can go to seven movies—including the outrageously priced popcorn and drinks! It baffles us to think about how crazy these ticket prices have gotten.
In an effort to keep theatre available to everyone, we have been searching for ways to purchase less expensive tickets and wanted to share with you some websites that we found.
Of course, there is always TKTS, if you’re willing to stand in the line. But there are more. Did you know that most shows offer rush and lottery tickets? New York Show Tickets updates the daily schedule and pricing of these tickets (just click on their name to see the daily schedule). This seem to be the least expensive way to see any of the Broadway shows. However, there is no certainty that you will see the show you want on the night you are wanting—so you need patience and flexibility for this option.
We think the best option for you is to find discount codes for the shows that you want to see. Although don’t tell everyone you’re seeing Hamilton just yet—not all the shows offer these discount codes. New York Show Tickets has the most up-to-date list. Click here.
If you want to purchase tickets with this discount plan, you will need a membership which is $4 for a 30-day period. Learn more by clicking here.
We’d love to hear from you about your favorite places to get discounted tickets!
