Musicals - Touring and Off Broadway
Be Strategic with Your Timing
The weather and seasons can greatly affect the price you pay for your tickets to Broadway musicals as well as musicals off Broadway. Summer and winter breaks demand high prices because of the public interest, particularly popular musicals like Mamma Mia and Chicago. According to industry trends, January, February, September and October are the slowest months for shows—likely due to schools being back in session and it being an off-time for vacations. Online sources tend to resell tickets to musicals and plays at a discount during these times, so getting to see those famous theatrical performances may not be out of reach if your schedule is flexible.
Check Special Deals in Your Area
Following your local theatre company along with the line-up of regional theater productions can help you keep track of local deals and discounts. Many sites offer schedules of musical tours and traveling shows so, no matter where you are, you can find a city near you where musical theatre or ballet tickets are available.
