Broadway tickets are available for purchase from many outlets in NYC and can vary wildly in cost and availability. Below is our guide to buying Broadway tickets in NYC
Face Value Broadway Tickets:
Ticket buyers can purchase face value Broadway tickets directly from the box office at the Broadway theatre. They do not charge any additional fees. Face value tickets can also be purchased over the phone (or on the internet) from the official ticket source like Telecharge or Ticketmaster, but these organizations charge a fee of $10 for the convenience. Tickets can still be picked up at the box office or sent to a mailing address, but the $10 fee/per ticket will still apply. The only way to avoid the fee is to buy the tickets in person at the box office.
Discount Broadway Tickets:
Discount Broadway tickets can be purchased on the day of the show at the TDF TKTS booth in Times Square (or any one of the other 4 booths around NYC). Discounted tickets can also be purchased in advance provided you have the discount code supplied by New York Show Tickets. These discounted tickets can be purchased in person (no fee) or over the internet or phone (small fee applies for phone or web, but not in person)
Ticket Broker Tickets:
For the hard to find Broadway tickets like Hamilton, Book of Mormon, Frozen and Harry Potter – ticket brokers may be the only way to get into the show. Stubhub is a reliable way of getting tickets that are certified genuine and guaranteed as many fake Broadway tickets have been circulating. Stubhub is a primary provider of secondary market Broadway tickets (AKA ticket brokers) and these tickets will be priced higher than their face value counterpart tickets, so you should expect some sticker shock.
What To Do If The Tickets To The Broadway Show You Want Are Too Expensive
If the Broadway Show that you want to see is too expensive, you should consider seeing another Broadway Show (or even an off-Broadway show) as there is always something good playing on the Great White Way. New York Show Tickets does offer standby, Lottery Rush, Student and some other discounted ticket methods that will bring the Broadway show ticket price down, but venturing further into the rich cultural landscape of performance arts in New York City, may just pay off more than you ever imagined.
