Tickets For A Broadway Play

With people increasingly interested in seeing a live performance on the stages of New York, procuring a show is not easy. This despite the fact that there are 39 legitimate theaters and more than a hundred designated as Off-Broadway and Off-Off- Broadway theaters. If the show you wish to see happens to be a popular one, then getting seats become more difficult.


Of course, the best option to procure tickets for a Broadway play is through the box office of the theater. However, the enthusiasts buy the seats months in advance, and if you have missed your chance of laying your hands on some seats for the popular shows, you may need to look elsewhere. There are ways of getting into a show from the box office on the day of the performance, but the chances are iffy.

On the day of the performance, the theaters issue the Starving Artist Seats, Anyone Rush, Discounts, Partial View, Student Rush, or the Standing Room Only (SRO). It is a mater of chance whether you get these seating options.

There are certain avenues for Broadway, which, at best, are known to be risky. These are:

The Re-Sale Forums – People are known to offload their extra Broadway seats, in case they are unable to attend on that particular night, through the various re-sale forums. People also use such forums to palm off fakes. Make sure that what you are buying are real, with real seat numbers, and this is not someone out to rip you.

Auction Sites, Such As eBay – Such sites are popular where many things are sold and bought. Someone may be trying to sell seats for the show you are interested in, for the same reasons as above. Here too, you must be as cautious as you would when buying through a re-sale forum.

Through Scalpers – Scalping is certainly unfair and a corrupt practice. Unfortunately, it does exist, and people who buy their seats from scalpers are equally responsible for encouraging such practices. Here too, chances are you may be buying fakes after dishing out a hefty sum.
