How To Get Cheap Theater Tickets

Click To View All Available Theater Tickets

If you are a major theater buff, getting cheap tickets for a show is probably very important to you, as not many people can afford to pay $60-$110 per show, on a regular basis, on Broadway! Well, the theater bug could prove to be a very expensive one if you don’t take out the time to find out more about some alternate means to obtaining discounted tickets to theater shows!

Discount Codes

Several legitimate websites offer discounted theater tickets for certain shows running in theaters presently. These websites are especially meant for people who like to plan ahead and buy their Broadway tickets well in advance. Also, they act as a promotional tool in order to increase the sales of these shows. However, most people are not aware of the existence of such discounted ticket coupons, which are actually codes or passwords that you can use to buy online tickets, order tickets on the phone or print these codes out and take them to the Box Office for purchasing the tickets there.

No matter how you eventually use them, these discount codes are for anyone and everyone. They are listed in the special Broadway guides and have to be availed well in advance. These codes not only fetch you some really good deals on concert tickets, but they also assure you of secured seats well ahead of show time. And there is no waiting line either! There is generally a deadline for such discount codes on theater tickets, which could vary from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. And the amount of discount you can get varies from 30% to 60% of the face value of the tickets.

Student Rush

If you are a student and can produce a Student I.D. for verification, then there is good news for you! Some Broadway shows tend to have a few spare theater tickets even on the day of the show. And instead of leaving these seats empty, they sell them off for cash $20-$30 per ticket to semi-broke students. Of course, if you have your heart set on watching one of the more popular shows, like Lion King, then really this wouldn’t be an option, as these shows are always a fast sell-out! But if you and your friends are just looking for a spontaneous show outing, then it might be worthwhile waiting until the day of the show to get your tickets.

Standing Room Only (SRO)

Some of the instant sell-out shows, like Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, have this special feature for discounted tickets, called Standing Room Only. As the name suggests, such SRO tickets do not get you a real seat. Instead, they provide you with a “standing room” only, towards the back of the theater , for about $25. Not very comfortable definitely, but if it’s a watch-the-show-or-die situation, then you can give it a try!

Getting Theater Tickets Online

But if you like your luxury and can afford it; there is nothing better than booking your seats online through an authorized broker. If you plan it in advance, you can still get a reasonable discount off the face value, and the tickets will be delivered right till your doorstep within 24 hours.
