The Best Ways To Purchase Broadway Tickets Online

There is no longer any need to stand in lines at the box office to buy your theater tickets. Thanks to the Internet, you can now try to obtain your tickets through online sources. People often think that just because the tickets are sold out at the box office, Broadway tickets are no longer available. This is not so. You can get those ‘sold out’ tickets through online sources. All you require is a credit card and an access to the Internet.

Safe Online Tickets

This is the age of e-commerce, and you need not visit the theater unless it is show time. Ticketmaster and Telecharge are the two well-known services through whom you can procure your Broadway tickets online. These sites have a relationship with the venues where the shows are performed, and Ticketmaster prides itself in charging the face value of the tickets. The advantage of procuring your Broadway tickets online through them is that you get your tickets without paying any amount extra, but the disadvantage is that the tickets are sold out within minutes of going on sale.

Demand for New York City musical and play tickets has always been higher than the supply, and so online tickets sell out fast.

Your other choice is approaching the websites of the secondary market ticket brokers. Here, the prices you have to pay for your tickets are higher than the face value of the tickets. The addition is the service fee, which you pay for the convenience of purchasing sold out tickets. Depending on the supply and demand, you sometimes have to pay a huge amount over and above the face value.

The more popular the show, higher a price you have to pay for the tickets. All ticket sites have updated inventory of the tickets and frequently offer seating charts. When opting to purchase your Broadway tickets online, ensure that the site has a secure and an encrypted server. Look at the bottom right of the browser page that asks for your credit card number, and you should see a closed pad lock. Purchasing your Broadway tickets online from such a website is safe as long as the pad lock is closed.

The advantage of buying your theater show tickets online is that you can make your purchases from any place and at any time. You do not need to be in New York.

Online Ticket Brokers

People try to purchase their tickets from sites where individuals sell their tickets. Here, you need to be cautious as certain individuals can sell you fake tickets. Be careful when purchasing your Broadway tickets online from re-sale forums, and from the various auction sites, such as eBay or Craiglist, as the seller is anonymous.

If you do have to buy your Broadway tickets online, go to the sites of legitimate and licensed ticket brokers who are reputable and have been providing satisfactory services for years.

Cost averages about twenty five percent over face value, but you are ensured of premium tickets while sitting in the comforts of your home.
