Going to the Broadway Show

Going to the Broadway Show

Without a doubt, going to a Broadway show is going to be one of the most exciting experiences of your life. If you’ve never been to one, this is one of those life moments that you must experience for yourself to really appreciate. If you’re thinking of going to a show, we can help you out. This brief guide is designed to help you get tickets to the show of your choice, and have a great time while you are out.

What’s Playing

Some shows we know are playing. Big name productions like Hamilton, Lion King, Wicked, and The Phantom of the Opera are some of the biggest shows to ever hit Broadway. Many of them are currently out on tour now, too, so you don’t need to come to New York to see them. But these are certainly not the only shows that are playing on the big stage. There are many others, in New York and beyond. They might not have the same name power that some of these classics do, but they are still amazing productions, well worth your time and the energy it takes to get to them.

Shows are always coming and going on Broadway. Knowing what’s currently playing can be confusing, especially if you are looking for an off-Broadway show. These shows tend to be held in smaller theaters and have less expensive tickets. That doesn’t mean that they are any less enjoyable, though. Knowing how to find these tickets can make your experience in New York, or anywhere else you are going to see a play, much more streamlined. And if our experience can be of any reference, the less stress that you have while finding tickets and planning your trip, the more fun you will have.

Getting Tickets

Let’s say you want to go see Hamilton, but the night that you have available to see the show has no tickets available. What do you do?

That’s a really easy question, luckily!

Even if tickets have sold out for a big name show, it doesn’t actually mean that there are no tickets available. Some of the top ticket sites and people always buy more tickets than will actually be used, and a soldout show doesn’t equal a show that’s impossible to get into. It just means that you need to do some digging of your own. This can be time consuming, but not the end of the world. We recommend starting out with one of the trusted third party ticket sites. There are many of these out there, and some are better than others. Sites like SeatGeek, StubHub, and TicketLiquidator have a high quality service, a huge user base so that there is always a large supply of tickets available, and cheap prices that encourage customers to use their services. You can even purchase e-tickets online and have them ready to get into the show just a couple hours or less before the lights begin to dim. This is great when you aren’t sure if you will be able to make it to a show until the day of.

Other Things to Do

If you’re going to New York to see a show, you know that the play is probably only going to be one of many things that you want to do. It’s like this in every city, whether you’re in Chicago, Los Angeles, or Denver. There’s always a ton of other things that can be done while you’re away for a vacation or a night out on the town. If you’re unsure of where to look for fun, we can give you some tips to get the most out of your time in a new city here.

Getting Deals

When you go to New York to see a Broadway show, the experience is not likely to be cheap. Spending money on the theater doesn’t need to be a huge ordeal, however. There are ways to save money when going out to a show, and still have a great time in the process. Whether it is finding cheap tickets online, bundling your New York experience packages together to cut costs, or just finding amazing deals on hotel rooms, transportation, or anything else you might be doing while you’re out, there are ways to get to Broadway, see your show of choice, and not go into debt while having the experience of a life time.

One way that we recommend to help you save money is to check out deals on the web. They say that the internet has made the world a much smaller place, and when it comes to finding cheap Broadway tickets, hotel packages, and more, this is certainly true. Getting the things that you want out of your theater experience, along with all that goes with it, is much easier than ever thanks to the almost instant level of communication that the internet’s given us. You can always pick up the phone and make some calls. We can show you how to use third party ticket sites to find what’s available and on sale, and we can point you in the right direction when it comes to finding cheap event and other passes in other areas, too. There’s no doubt that Broadway is fun, but if you can save some of the stress that comes with the cost of a night out, it will be an even more enjoyable experience.
