Whether you’re visiting New York City or a native New Yorker, going to a Broadway show is a must. Finding tickets affordable tickets is a whole other story until now.
I am absolutely in love with Today Tix, an app you can download for free for both iOS and Android. It was created by Broadway producers and gives you access to the best prices on last-minute Broadway and Off-Broadway tickets. That means NO more waiting in lines in the freezing cold the morning of at the “TKTS booth” or dealing with shady ticket brokers or a scalper for hot tickets like Wicked, Blue Man Group, Newsies, Chicago and Phantom of the Opera! It’s perfect for last-minute ticket buyers and you can purchase tickets up to a week in advance which to me, really isn’t that last-minute.
Using the app is super easy. In just a few clicks you can secure great seats to available shows.
I recently took the app for a spin and snagged amazing orchestra seats to the new breakout hit, On the Town for only $49 each, saving over $178 for 2 tickets! Unfortunately you don’t know what seats you have until you arrive, but you are guaranteed the best tickets available at the time of purchase and all seats purchased are seated together. The hand delivered concierge service, where uniformed Today Tix concierge agents meet you outside the theater, is also a very nice touch!
My tickets were for the 8:00pm show on Wednesday night which left me plenty of time to grab dinner at one of the many amazing restaurants around the theater. This allergy mom, sans child, took the night off and indulged in all you can eat pasta at Lidia Bastanich’s Becco (for only $22.95 per person!).
The Hot show is sold out? As a New Yorker, I love that you can set an alert for when tickets become available. I’m waiting for Book of Mormons! As I’m also cultivating a mini theater lover, I love Today Tix’s daily lotteries. If you’re feeling lucky, Today Tix holds daily lotteries for hit Broadway and Off-Broadway shows for as little as $10 and you only pay if you win! Winners have snagged $200 Orchestra seats at that price!
Right now if you refer a friend and they download the Today Tix app, you’ll both get a $20 credit making it a WIN-WIN for you both!
