Tips To Get Cheap Last Minute Theatre Tickets

Click To View All Available Last Minute Theatre Tickets

If you plan your outings in advance, then you probably don’t need last minute theatre tickets. But if you are a spontaneous kind of person, then you’ve probably faced the difficulty in getting cheap last minute tickets to a Broadway show you want to see. Here are some quick ways that can help you get reasonably priced last minute tickets to Broadway shows.

Student Discounts

If you are a student and a Broadway bug, then these so called “student-rushes” could very well become your “best friends” in time! As you probably very well know, it is not really economical, on your limited budget, to pay the full price of Broadway tickets. But with the help of your student I.D., you can get some last minute theatre tickets for as low as $20-$30 per ticket!

Some theater shows still have seats leftover, on the day of the show. And tickets for these shows are generally released to semi-broke students as soon as the Box Office opens that day, or maybe a couple of hours before the show is about to begin. However, the catch here is that the seats would normally be the ones that nobody else wanted, meaning the last rows or perhaps the very first row!

Get Lucky At The Lottery Rush!

Even if you aren’t a student anymore, you can still avail a cheap last minute theatre tickets scheme! With a little bit of luck, plenty of spontaneity and a photo I.D., that Broadway ticket could be yours for just $20-$30! Some shows, instead of taking out a “Student Rush”, reserve a certain number of tickets for every show as the “Lottery Rush”.

These tickets are also usually for the first and second rows. About 2 ½ hours before the show is to begin, the usher starts collecting the names of the entrants; with the number of tickets they want (usually one or two per name). Half an hour later, he randomly pulls out 12-25 names from a pile of about 100, and if you get lucky, you show him your photo I.D., pay the cash and get the tickets! But then, like all other lotteries, this is purely a game of luck!

Standing Room Only – A Challenging Way To Watch Broadway!

Well if you are looking for seats to some of the more popular Broadway shows, like The Lion King or The Beauty and the Beast, then the “Student Rush” or “Lottery” won’t probably work for you, as these shows are almost always a total sell-out and there are no tickets to spare on such schemes. But in such shows, the organizers do have a Standing-Room-Only feature, which means that you can get space at the back to stand, for about $25! So if you really MUST watch that show, and you are game for the challenge, then SRO it is for you!

For those of you who can afford to pay the full price, booking your tickets through an online authorized broker would be the best option. You can get tickets delivered to you without stepping out of your home. You can even procure tickets to the sold-out shows this way!
