Several people have asked about Broadway shows and how to get
tickets. Discounts can be had at TKTS booths. The South Street
Seaport is a charming area and the booth is far less crowded than
Tickets are discounted. Top Broadway shows will not be cheap however
- $50-$75 if they are available at all. I paid full price for The
Drowsy Chaperone and that was $110 for a good orchestra seat
Be careful. Don't purchase tickets on the street from ANYONE. There
are terrible scam artists out there who are happy to ruin your
trip. TKTS tickets are guaranteed.
Be flexible. Read about all the plays that attract you online first
and have five choices that you would like to see.
Off-and Off-Off Broadway tickets can be very inexpensive and the
plays interesting. I have seen several plays this year for $15.
Subscribe to Time Out New York or purchase it at your big
international magazine store. B&N and Borders Books should have.
Read the magazine which is young-focused (don't purchase the Kids
version however) It has reviews of every play and museum and
gallery and music venue. You'll quickly get the flavor of culture
in New York City.
