Let’s face it: Broadway musical tickets ain’t cheap. Generally speaking, you’re going to have to pony up a lot of dough to see the hottest shows. And yet, there are still some bargains out there. And we’re here to help you find them!
How much are musical tickets to Broadway?
The face value of broadway musical tickets can vary widely, but they are getting more expensive every day. Hello Dolly! starring Bette Midler had a top box office price of $748. In the secondary market, prices can soar into the thousands of dollars, but also be had for peanuts. It’s the perfect example of supply and demand.
That said, with a little planning, it’s possible to find a wide variety of great Broadway shows under a C-note. Here are a few we’ve found.
The new musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved book is somewhat based upon the 1971 movie musical starring Gene Wilder. Critics didn’t love it so much, but audiences have, especially the kids. We’ve seen prices as low as $59 for center Orchestra, considerably lower than regular box office.
Demand for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical based on the Jack Black comedy is still very strong, with tickets fetching in the hundreds. Still with a little sleuthing and luck, you can find $99 and under tickets in rear areas of the house.
The feel-good musical about a waitress and her delectable pies is definitely a hit but still has good availability for many nights. You can find seats in the under $99 price range in the back of the mezzanine.
The Christine Ebersol/Patty LuPone musical is about the rivalry between makeup mavens Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein. It received many Tony Nominations but didn’t take home any statues. The dynamic exchange between these two powerhouses makes it a delightful evening at the theater and there are often tickets $99 or under in the rear mezzanine.
