Cheap Broadway Tickets

If you’re planning a trip to the Big Apple you should write down on your list to go see a musical, it’s a must! Today we also tell you how to get cheap Broadway tickets and save a few dollars!

Here are some tips to save time and money in the post of tips to travel to New York for the first time, sure you can also come good for your trip.

We also have a travel guide to New York to plan your trip free of charge from start to finish and no loose ends!

It is a city that we have visited several times and we were even living a season, in this link: trip to New York, you can read everything we have written so far.

And now, here we go with our post on the Broadway tickets!

Broadway Tickets

Where to buy Broadway tickets:

To make sure you have a ticket to the musical you want and during the days we’ll be in New York, it’s best to bring the ticket booked from home.

The sooner we book it, the more likely it is to be available and in acceptable seats (not in the last corner of the theatre).

If we don’t give a damn about one musical or another and the seat we have, we can wait and buy them right there, surely with discounts.

That’s what we’ll talk about in the next section, but the chances of tickets for the most famous musicals are pretty low, almost non-existent!

Buy tickets for Broadway online:

Tickets for Broadway are sold on Ticketmaster.com, they have the best prices for Broadway musicals, the only catch is that the website is in English, and if we have any questions and need support will also be in English.

There are two other websites that sell Broadway tickets: Hellotickets and Civitatis. These two are in Spanish and with support in Spanish, sometimes they have offers and it is even better than in Ticketmaster, the best thing is to compare the three.

We know Ticketmaster and Civitatis firsthand, they are totally reliable and 100% recommended, Hellotickets is a new Spanish website and we have heard very well.

Buy Broadway tickets at the musical box office:

Another option is to go to the theatre box office where the show is performed and buy it directly, but they may not have it for the day we want. The most important musicals are sold out well in advance.

Where to buy cheap Broadway tickets:

As I said above, if you want to see a musical but you don’t care about one or the other, you don’t care about the location of the seats and you’re flexible with the schedules, you can save a few dollars by buying tickets for Broadway at a discount!

As far as we know there are two options, one is the well-known TKTS company and the other is the Broadway Lottery.

Buy cheap Broadway tickets at TKTS:

They sell the available tickets for the same day that they have not been able to sell at normal price, according to which musicals have discounts of 20%, 30% and up to 50%, but watch out! It is very difficult to find cheap tickets to the most famous musicals.

It’s an ideal option if you want to see a musical on Broadway without it costing you too much.

In the famous red TKTS booth under the stairs of Times Square there are big queues every day, but there are other stores spread around the city with the same prices, TKTS South Street Seaport and TKTS Lincoln Center.

We advise you to visit one of the other two to avoid wasting time on your trip.

Broadway tickets at the Lottery:

The operation is quite simple, the day before the function opens the deadline to participate in the website of the lottery, there are 8 hours to sign up, and when the deadline ends draw the tickets.

But it is never known how many people sign up or how many entries are available.

We tried the 7 days of our last trip to New York and nothing! Now we get a lot of advertising emails.

In our opinion, it is more a way of capturing emails to send advertising than a real option to get tickets very good price, we know of people who have touched but just like the normal lottery … is quite complicated.

Tickets to see the world’s most famous musicals are not exactly cheap, but we advise you to see some!

Finding cheap Broadway tickets at TKTS will allow us to save a bit on this aspect.

Watch out! Finding great bargains in the most sought-after musicals such as King Leon, Aladdin or Frozen is almost impossible.

If your idea is to see one of the most acclaimed musicals on Broadway, we advise you to buy your ticket at Ticketmaster.com (or one of the websites mentioned above) as far in advance as possible and secure your seat.
