Have you ever wanted to go see a comedy act as it was coming through your city, only to find yourself unable to get tickets? Maybe you’ve even tried major third party ticket sites like SeatGeek, but every time you check, either all of the tickets have sold out, or the only tickets you can find are not worth the cost. That’s frustrating, and we feel your pain. And unfortunately, the more you want to see a comedian, the harder it is to get tickets. Everyone else wants to go, too!
While there’s no foolproof way to guarantee that you will find tickets to the show you want to see, there are ways to help improve your chances. (more…)
If you are a theater fan, there will inevitably come a time when you purchase tickets to go see a show, but then are unable to go and enjoy it. Maybe you’ve already experienced this. In a scenario like this, what’s the best way to handle it? You can give your tickets away to a friend or co-worker so that at least someone can see the performance. The downside to this is that it’s often awkward to ask someone you know to pay for tickets that you’ve bought, and this means that you’re going to lose money on it. (more…)
One of the common questions that those new to the theater have is, “What does ‘Broadway’ mean?” On one hand, it’s a really easy question—it’s a section of New York City famous for the theater. But Broadway goes far beyond that, as you will quickly find out when looking for theater tickets. You can even go see a Broadway show that is not in New York City, hence all of the confusion.
Let’s get a solid answer, and then tell you what that means for you.
Broadway is a more than a street. It’s a style of theater. It typically refers to the seating available at a particular show. The theory here is that the more seats available for the performance, the higher the quality of the performance. That makes sense. If there are 1,000 total tickets available for a given night you can assume that it is a better show than if there are just 100 tickets. (more…)
When it comes to Broadway shows, there are some productions that are staples. Shows like Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and Rent immediately come to mind as long running shows with huge audiences night after night. Hamilton is a more recent show that is headed down that same path. While these might be the biggest names on Broadway, they are certainly not the only musicals that are being performed. Keeping up with the shows on and off Broadway that are attracting large crowds can be tough, but it’s not impossible. For the theater lover, knowing what is being performed and where/when is a huge part of getting the most out of your experience. We are here to help you enjoy it even more. (more…)
